Do you have a Charity Partner?
Yes. We work with the Navy SEAL Foundation, who stands behind all U.S. Navy SEALs, Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewmen, Naval Special Warfare support personnel, and their spouses and children. The Foundation coordinates closely with NSW commands to support critical needs of active-duty operators while also providing resources for NSW veterans. Their work is focused on three key areas: family services and command support, educational programs, and legacy activities. Their mission is to provide immediate and ongoing support and assistance to the Naval Special Warfare community and their families. You can help us help them by donating or setting up your own fundraising page when you register.
Will there be food vendors?
Yes. Exactly what will be available depends on the specific BONEFROG, but we would not leave you hungry after something like this!
Will there be professional photographers for the event?
Yes. Professional photos of the event will be available shortly following the weekend. You are encouraged to take personal photos and post them to Facebook for all to enjoy!
Is there a charge for parking?
Yes, there is a charge for parking. Passenger vehicles are $10 each, and oversize vehicles are $20 each. (Cash Only)
Do I need a spectator pass?
Spectators are FREE! We want your family, friends and loved ones to celebrate your accomplishment with you! (A signed waiver is required.)
Can spectators enjoy the after party?
Is the event timed?
Yes. BONEFROG is just that – a Challenge! While it is not meant to be a race in the purest sense of the word, we understand that many athletes appreciate having an official time.
What does my race entry fee include?
The race entry fee includes Event Admission, Timed Race Entry, Finisher Medal, Finisher T-shirt, Rockin After Party, Free Photography, Mud in your pants and one FREE BEER (for participants 21 years or over).
Why do I have to pay a $10 insurance fee?
This insurance covers you for medical expenses should you be injured during the event. Everyone is required to pay for this coverage, regardless of your own health insurance status.
Can I cancel after I have registered?
Sure. You just can’t get a refund. All entries are non-refundable. The only exception to this policy is military with orders out of the area. Email us from our contact page and we will quickly respond with what is required.
Is the race registration transferable?
Yes, you can transfer your registration to one of our other events within the next 12 months, or you can transfer your registration to someone else. Both of these options will incur a $20 transfer fee. Email us at email@example.com for details. We must be notified of any transfer requests at least 1 day before the race you are registered to participate in.
Do you offer group discounts?
Navy SEALs never work alone and neither should you! We offer a Corporate Discount to groups of 10 or more people when they sign up together. Send a list of the 10 people using the code to firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm eligibility. (All 10 racers must be registered by race day or team faces penalty charge)
What is the minimum age requirement?
You must be at least 14 years old on the day of the race to participate in the event. We also offer a Kids Course, complete with mud pit and scaled down obstacles that the little ones can enjoy with adult supervision. This area is open from 9:00am to 3:00pm and recommended for children ages 3-13. You can register online prior to the race or sign the kids up at the race. All spectators are free to enter, so bring the entire family!
Is there an after party?
Absolutely! 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 literally hundreds of combat missions – no one can plan like we do! From awesome music and plenty of bathrooms to enough first-aid stations and great food, your experience with the Bone Frog Challenge will be one that you will remember and cherish for years to come.
Is this just another mud race?
NO! The mud-run/obstacle/adventure race industry has split into two distinct categories: 1) the mass of ~5K events with a handful of obstacles and 2) True tests of fitness, stamina and teamwork (such as the Tough Mudder/Super Spartan/Spartan Beast). The latter category is where BONEFROG resides, with at least 30 Navy SEAL-style obstacles placed approximately every ¼ mile on courses ranging 3-11 miles in distance. You must be functionally fit to succeed. Our experience with functional fitness, obstacle courses, challenge and motivation enabled us to produce an event that goes above and beyond those in existence. As Navy SEALs, we know what tough is – and we don’t mean Harvard.
What is a BONEFROG?
BONEFROG 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 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 transitioned to 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 BONEFROG has come to represent today’s SEALs who have brought warfare to an entirely new level in Iraq, Afghanistan and around the world. Many of our current warriors have some rendition of the BONEFROG tattooed on their bodies – it means that much.

How and when can I see photos from a race?
The soonest you will be able to see photos from a race is when we do a “Sneak Peek” album, typically on Sunday evening after the event. This is posted to Facebook only.
There are two different ways you can get photos of yourself and your friends. The first way is with your bib number, using Pic2Go within a few days after the race. These will post directly to Facebook for either "your friends" or “only you” to see and enjoy.
If you don’t like wearing your bib while you race, we have athletes that will write their bib number on their chest or arms. This helps us know who you
are so we can tag you in your photos. If your bib fell off of your bib is on your back it does make it harder to tag your photos. Sometimes we can get a photo of you as you pass by our photographers, however it is much easier to if your bib is in the front or your bib number is written on your chest or arms.
The second way is to go through our gallery on our website. Each race will have it's own gallery listed. These come out a day or two after the Pic2Go photos and you can search by obstacle and by time. If your bib fell off you can search the gallery on the website by Obstacle and by Time when the gallery is posted.
Photos will be out by the Friday after the race in both versions, Pic2Go and the Photo Gallery. Keep an eye out on Facebook for the link and the website gallery under the specific event. We will also send out an email with the links you need to view the photos.
Do the discounts and promotions apply to all of your races?
Our discounts apply to our Sprint, Challenge and TIER 1 races. They do not apply to the Endurance.
