WTF is a Bone Frog?

The Bone Frog is the unofficial mascot for the current generation of Navy SEALs that carry out our nation’s most difficult and dangerous missions around the world. The origins date back to before Navy SEALs had been created. Our predecessors were the men of the Underwater Demolition Teams (UDT) that served so courageously in WWII, Korea and through Vietnam. These incredible heroes were known as “UDT Frogmen” due to their incredible abilities to work in and around the water while battling fierce opposition. During Vietnam, these UDT Frogmen became Navy SEALs and the UDT were phased out. As a result of the great respect current SEALs have for our forefathers, we still prefer to be known as “Frogmen.” The Bone Frog has come to represent today’s SEALs who have brought warfare to an entirely new level in Iraq, Afghanistan and around the world in places you have never heard of. Many of our current warriors have some rendition of the Bone Frog tattooed on their bodies – it means that much.

We are working hard to grow our business however we have not forgotten what you all told us at our first event- the authentic, tight-knit feel coupled with the best Navy SEAL inspired obstacles was what you loved, and we want to give you more of it in 2014! This year, we are limiting entry for each start wave to 100 people! The morning waves are already filling up so don’t delay- Get After It!

Best Pricing Guarantee– We want to reward our best customers, not screw them. As a result, we will never offer any pricing below that which we offered for our early Bird Discount. The price you see today, is the best you will get. Any special offers that follow will be given to those already registered as well – so register today with confidence knowing you got the best deal for the best event of 2014!

We are actively searching for new venues for 2014! Keep your suggestions coming- we are growing slowly to ensure we maintain the highest level of quality at every event. We would rather run a single epic event per year then 12 half assed ones. This is the way SEALs do business, so be patient or come and see us in the Northeast!

About Bone Frog Challenge

The Story. The Bone Frog Challenge was created by Navy SEALs to challenge, build and inspire participants to become better athletes and recognize that they can do anything they set their minds to, while enjoying the camaraderie and teamwork usually reserved for active duty Navy SEALs.

The Experience.
The Bone Frog Challenge is truly a unique experience. Our events kick off with the SEAL Wave Friday afternoon during which a very limited number of entrants enjoy the course and camaraderie with Navy SEALs. The minimum SEAL-to -participant ratio is 1:10 in the SEAL Wave, and 50% of the entrance fee for this wave goes to the Navy SEAL Foundation. Saturday is the primary race day. Waves start every 15 to 30 minutes from 9am-4pm.

The Course. With at least 36 military-style obstacles on courses that range from 9-12 miles, the course will test everyone and leave no one unscathed. We place an obstacle about every quarter mile, so your running ability alone will not carry the day. You must be functionally fit to succeed here. You will get muddy. You will get beat up. You will be exhausted. But you will finish. Did we mention sand? You will get to know what it means to be “wet and sandy” just like we were at BUDS. As Navy SEALs, we know what tough is – and we don’t mean Harvard.

The After Party. While we do not believe that the “after party” should be the focus of the day, we have always subscribed to the “work hard, play hard” mentality. We have planned and executed hundreds of combat missions – no one can plan like we do! From awesome music to enough first-aid stations and great food, your experience with the Bone Frog Challenge will be one that you will remember for years to come.

Relay Team or Individual. Our event will foster camaraderie, period. Form an official relay team ahead of time or link up with others when you get here.

Family Event. As Navy SEALs we have been forced to spend a great deal of time away from our families. As a result, whenever we can, we include the entire family in all that we do. The Bone Frog Challenge event weekend offers fun and activities for all ages. Let the kids come watch you race and then let them loose in our Mini Bone Frog Challenge Kids Area where they can play in the mud and on scaled down obstacles.
