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 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 and Sunday are the primary race days. Waves start every 15 to 30 minutes from 9am-2pm. Special waves include:
Elite Wave – 9:00am
Singles Wave – 11:00am
Exclusive to the Bone Frog Challenge, we also offer a night race Saturday. A limited number of entrants run a modified version of the course in the dark. Headlamp and extreme courage are required! Your entrance fee grants you access for both Saturday and Sunday (no additional spectator pass required for the day you are not racing). Special pricing is available with your Bone Frog Challenge registration for the wonderful on-site resort and participating local hotels (discount codes in registration packet).
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 attempt to place an obstacle about every ¼ 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 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.
Team or Individual
Our event will foster camaraderie, period. Form a team ahead of time or link up with others when you get here. If you sign up as a team with 10 or more people, each member will receive a $10 discount. This is a great way to challenge your friends and create lasting bonds.
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. We will also offer on-site child care with trusted professionals.

Well organized, friendly staff and overall a great experience. This was my first non-road race I have entered and I could not have been more pleased. The "after party" was just as much fun, meet and greet with Navy SEALs was a blast. I look forward to participating in more Bone Frog Challenges in the future.
The Best Out There!!!
I have participated in several "mud races" this was by far the best. It was extremely well run, the obstacles were by far the most creative/different I have seen, and the after party was a nice conclusion to a great day! Also meeting and drinking with seals was pretty cool!
This was by far the best, and most challenging, endurance race/event I competed in all year. The Bone Frog staff put together a great course with tough obstacles that tested me physically like I hadn't been tested in a long time. Can't wait for Bone Frog 2014 and excited to see what they throw at us next.
This a a great run. I highly recommend.
This event was so much fun & had amazing challenges. The staff was fantastic and really made the event come together. I was impressed with the obstacles and can't wait to participate again in the next race!
Top notch event. Well organized and run. These guys know how to put on an event. Can't wait to do the next one.
This was my first mud run and I absolutely loved it! I trained for a few months leading up to it and participated in a group run, which was great. The after party and band made the celebration that much better. Looking forward to 2014!
The race was extremely well run and we all had a blast. I’ve done a number of other mud races and this was by far the best! Looking forward to May 2014!
Was the best course that i have been too! Cant wait till 2014
Absolutely the best obstacle course race! The obstacles were very well balanced in that they challenged all different aspects of functional fitness i.e., balance, upper/lower body strength and endurance. I would like to see a few more water obstacles, but other than that the race was superbly designed and operated. Where else can you share an experience with some our nation's elite? I will definitely be there in 2014 and can't wait to see what they come up with next!
Awesome event,very cool,and challenging obstacles .All military personal were very cool.will definitely be there in 2014!
Thanks for putting together such a well run event. The obstacles were truly the highlight, but the staff, volunteers and Seal Team Members made it uniquely fun and challenging. Do It Again!
Loads of fun. Great obstacles in a terrific venue. Superbly organized and staffed. Great challenges.
This event was perfect. Everything from the check in to the race and obstacles. The obstacles were challenging, the hills were more brutal than the two Tough Mudders I participated in, and the staff was fantastic. Everyone that I had the chance to chat with on the course was friendly as well (must be an OCR thing). I can't wait to come back next year. Really hoping they'll be able to pull through with two events! I'll be advertising the hell out of it.
This event was the first obstacle-style run I've participated in and I really enjoyed myself. There weren't a ton of people there, probably because its brand new, but that's likely to change going forward because this is a legitimate race. I trained hard for this and it definitely paid off. The challenges were a mix of fun and tough, but battling the mountain inclines made the overall race much more difficult. A nice feature was the staff at each obstacle cheering you on or helping you out or showing you how best to complete the obstacle or a combination of those things. The only thing I would suggest is maybe 1 or 2 more water stations and maybe a bathroom station somewhere along the course. Overall it was a great event and I'm looking forward to the next one in New England.
