The GORUCK Challenge is a team event, never a race. Think of it as a slice of Special Operations training where - from start to finish -- a Special Operations Cadre challenges, teaches, and inspires your small team to do more than you ever thought possible. Leadership is taught and teamwork is demanded on missions spanning the best of your city.
Registration is individual, completion is collective. We recommend signing up with a friend, but you don’t have to. Either way, you will leave with about 29+ friends for life. You will show up to the start point with water, wrapped bricks or a filler bag, and a rucksack full of anything else you need. You will meet your Cadre there, and then it begins. You will stay with your team the duration of the Challenge. Your Cadre will be with you the entire time until the 30 individuals have become one team and earned the GORUCK Tough patch.
Unique to this particular GORUCK Challenge, the team will collectively be required to raise $10,000 for the NBCF. Upon doing so, you will receive the exclusive all-pink version of the Tough Patch.
