What is Joggin’ for Frogmen?

Joggin’ for Frogmen is a 5k run/walk. Those who want to run and receive their times can choose to have a chip timed bib and will be seeded at the front of the group. Those of you who wish to walk will start a few minutes after our runners start. The Tadpole Trot for the kids will start when all of our runners/walkers return back to the finish line. Tadpole Trotters need to register for the Tadpole Trot, but can do the 5k with their parents at no extra cost. Strollers are welcome but this is a hilly course so be prepared for a bit of a challenge! No bicycles or skateboards are allowed.

ATTENTION: Please review this road closure which will happen on race day.

EMERGENCIES on the course:

If you are running on the course and see an emergency, please call 619-594-1991. This is SDSU’s dispatcher and we will get help more quickly than calling 911.

Get your boots on!

Buy BOOT CAMPAIGN Boots
The Joggin’ for Frogmen 5k has teamed up with the BOOT CAMPAIGN! We are asking YOU to “Get your boots on!” and run! If our military can do it, SO CAN YOU! Boots usually ship within 4 business days, but can take up to two weeks so order early!

The top ten fastest runners wearing boots will win a prize!

Tadpole Trot:

It’s a family affair! The Tadpole Trot is a 100 yard dash on ENS 700 field (see map below for field location) for kids ages 10 and under. It starts at 9:30, which is an hour and a half after the Joggin’ for Frogmen start time. Kids can jog/walk the 5k with their parent/guardian then head over to the Tadpole Trot! Each child must be accompanied by an adult, and participants of the Tadpole Trot need to register and pick up their t-shirts at packet pick-up times.

We will have the following heats with prizes in each heat:
9-10 year olds
7-8 year olds
5-6 year olds
3-4 year olds
Kids under 3 can register and run in the 3-4 year old heat.

Tadpoles are allowed to run the 5k with their parents for no additional charge.

If your child has a pair of little military boots, make sure to have them wear them!

The laydown area is at the ENS 700 field (green field seen below). The red dot is the start/finish line. The yellow line is where we will have our barricades.
