Joggin for Frogmen 5K
What is Joggin’ for Frogmen?
Joggin’ for Frogmen is a 5k chip timed run/walk that brings men, women and children together to jog in honor of our Navy SEALs (Frogmen) and all military Heroes who have sacrificed their lives for us while protecting our country. All proceeds benefit the Navy SEAL Foundation, The 31Heroes Project, and Travis Manion Foundation through their One Team One Fight partnership.
Following the 5k is a “Tadpole Trot” for the kids. All registered 5k and Tadpole participants will receive a Joggin’ for Frogmen race shirt at packet pickups. All registered 5k participants will wear a 5k bib and will receive a 5k finisher’s medal/bottle opener when crossing the 5k finish line. All Tadpole Trotters will wear a Tadpole Trot bib and will receive a Tadpole Trot medal upon completion of the Tadpole Trot. Tadpole Trotters need to register for the Tadpole Trot, but can do the 5k with their parents at no extra cost. However, if a Tadpole runs in the 5k, they will not receive a 5k medal unless they have on a 5k bib, which requires additionally registering and paying for the 5k.
The 2nd Annual Pittsburgh Joggin’ for Frogmen 5k will be held in conjuction with the 2nd Annual Pittsburgh Pays Tribute Gala, which will be held on November 7. For more information on the gala, please visit PittsburghPaysTribute.org.
Remember to “Get your boots on!” We have partnered with our friends at The Boot Campaign and encourage everyone to honor our troops by wearing your boots while you run. If you don’t already have a pair of boots, you can purchase them from The Boot Campaign shop, knowing that your purchase will support this wonderful organization! Net proceeds from the sales of the boots will go to support the Boot Campaign’s five initiatives – Housing, Jobs, Wellness, Family Support and Urgent Assistance. Please select “Joggin’ for Frogmen” from the Boot Campaign drop down menu when you purchase your boots from their site.

GENERAL RACE and COURSE DESCRIPTION
There is a football field at North Park. The field, used for local sporting events, is named to honor Lt. Joseph Charles Stone. Known as J.C. to his friends and family. J.C. enlisted to serve the USA in the Viet Nam War. He was a decorated Green Beret who gave his life for his country when the small village where he was engaged was overrun by the Viet Cong. His legacy is one of bravery. This run is in memory of J.C. and all the brave soldiers who have fought for our country.
The course starts at the North Park Boat House with a short loop, then proceeds to complete six 5-mile loops around scenic North Park Lake. Approximately 2.5 miles from the Boat House runners will pass Lt. J.C. Stone Field. This 5-mile loop has been the home to many exciting Ultras in the past. This course is the same course as the former GNC 50K/50Mile/100K race. UltraRunners from all over the country ran this course as for several years it was host to several National Championship Road Races. The course is awesome. Asphalt running trail that follows the shoreline of North Park Lake. It will be very well marked and will have volunteers stationed along the course so that you can focus on running and leave the logistics to us. Challenging but very runable.
We consistently have several men and women listed in Ultrarunning Magazine's fastest 50K times.
The schedule is set for the 2015 race! Please enjoy the race reports from our past events, and some photos. Join us on Facebook under Groups. Lt. JC Stone 50K Group is out there and is a good way to follow us and receive updates and information about the event.

INSTRUCTIONS For RUNNERS
The three rules that are strictly enforced: 1) No litter, 2) No pacing by motorized vehicle, and 3) No Aid given from any moving vehicle (bikes are vehicles). You will be disqualified for running afoul of these rules. Please don’t.
- No running pets please. This is a people race.
- Rules that the North Park/Allegheny County Police will enforce are, 1) Exceeding the speed limits around the park, 2) bicycling in the ‘wrong’ direction. The park is a one way cycling park with marked lanes. We run the race in the 'opposite' direction of the bicycle path. Bicycles are permitted on the course. Please observe all signs.
- We start and finish at the North Park Boat House. We have the boat house facility which includes indoor, warm, clean restroom facilities, several picnic tables and the food!
- Parking at the North Park Boat House has been reserved for you, your crew, your family and friends. I expect we will have plenty of room. This is a crew-friendly course, and is supported well with two aid stations. Aid every 2.5 mile. Your can have a pacer. If your pacer is going to run the entire distance they do need to register for the event.
- Please do not litter. Drop your trash at the aid stations, and we will take care of the rest.
- Registration through active.com will be $50 up until March 20, 2015.
- Pre-registration is considered to be registration by midnight March 10, 2015.
- Runners who pre-register will receive a tech fabric shirt (The shirts are awesome). Pre-registered Finishers will receive a finisher's medal (The medal is way cool). Register after March 10 and you do run the risk of no shirt and no medal (I will try to prevent this from happening, but help me out by registering as early as you can).
- There is no registration by mail. If we don't fill the field we will accept walk-up registration until to 7:30am on race day (the entry fee will be $75).
- Top three female and Top three male finishers will receive a unique commemorative award. Top masters (age 40+) male and top masters female will receive a unique commemorative award. Top grand master (age 50+) male and female will receive a unique commemorative award.

- Runners will have access to indoor bathrooms before, during and after the run. While we don’t have showers, we do have indoor plumbing. Runners will also have access to bathrooms and port-a-potties along the course.
- PACERS are allowed from start to finish. But if your pacer is running the whole way, please register them as a runner. Your pacer has complete aid station access.
- The Boat House aid station will offer runners food and beverage including sport bars, cookies, pretzels, crackers, water, sports drink and soda pop.There is a different mix of aid station food each year.
- Dropbags may be left at the Boat House Aid Station. In fact you can have your own little area set up near your vehicle. Bring a chair, a cooler and a towel. Make it your own oasis of support if you care to.
- The temperature can vary drastically in March. Be ready for anything from a wet 43oF. to temperatures in the 80o's. I am hoping for 48F and partly cloudy, but you just never know!
- Please report to the finish line area if you happen to drop from the race. Don’t just walk off, we will be worried about you and will spend time looking for you.
Some local hotels in case you need to spend the night.
