GCR Extortion 17 Memorial 5k Ruck will be held on the 10th anniversary, Friday, August 6, 2021, at Tulsa’s Memorial Cemetery on 51st & Memorial.
“The reality is, every time a helicopter lifts off the ground in a war zone, it might get shot down. There is still a tremendous level of chance for a tragedy of such huge magnitude.” – Ed Darack
Registration is not required to participate in our local ruck event. The American Legion has a beautiful monument on the veteran’s lawn. While not directly related to Extortion 17, all branches are represented. The minimum distance for our ruck will be 5k / 3.1 miles.
MEET & PARK your vehicles at Regency Park / Aaronson Park across 51st street from Memorial Cemetery. Ample street parking along South 87th East Ave is available. While parking is available at Memorial Cemetery, the gates close at 7:30 PM and there is no guarantee we will be finished with our ruck by then.
MAP TO: 4807 S 87th E Ave S, Tulsa, OK 74145
MEET HERE: https://what3words.com/funded.belong.hobby

We will start the ruck at Regency Park but immediately head south across 51st into Memorial Cemetery. If we need more distance to make the 5k / 3.1 miles, we’ll return to Regency Park and use the trails there.

On August 6th 2011, a United States CH-47 Chinook military helicopter operating with the call sign EXTORTION 17 was shot down, marking the most devastating day in Naval Special Warfare history and the single largest loss of life for U.S. forces since the war in Afghanistan began in October 2001. The US military lost 31 warriors that day.
Joggin’ for Frogmen was created to honor these heroes and all those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. What began as a single 3.1 mile race in San Diego has expanded to a worldwide event hosting thousands of participants with a mission to activate communities from around the world to honor the sacrifices of our service members and veterans, and to support the families of our fallen heroes. These races bring communities together to celebrate the lives of America’s fallen and to express our deep gratitude to those still serving. This year marks the 10-year anniversary of that tragic day in 2011 and our efforts to honor those brave men and support their families.
Inspired by US Navy SEALs (Frogmen), the mission of the Joggin’ for Frogmen Race Series is to activate communities from around the world to honor the sacrifices of our Naval Special Warfare service members and veterans, and to support the families of our fallen heroes. Our races bring communities together to celebrate the lives of America’s fallen and to express our deep gratitude to those still serving.

“So much of the war is fought in areas where these helicopters have to fly at high altitudes,” where the thin air can strain the performance of the engines and rotor blades, said Ed Darack, author of the recently published book, The Final Mission of Extortion 17: Special Ops, Helicopter Support, SEAL Team Six and the Deadliest Day of the U.S. War in Afghanistan. (Smithsonian Books, September 2017).
