THE GORUCK CHALLENGE

ALWAYS A TEAM EVENT, NEVER A RACE

  1. Sounds Crazy.
  2. You show up anyway.
  3. You do it.
  4. When’s the next one?

Based on Special Forces training, your class is led from start to finish by a Special Forces Cadre. His job is to test your limits, push you beyond them, and build your class into a team. There are no cash prizes at the finish. All you earn is a 2x3 inch patch and the respect of everyone to your left and right.


What we teach at the GORUCK Challenge


 

Teamwork

Charming the Snake is More Mental, Not Less Physical

The Challenge has always been tough. In 2016 it’s more mental, but not less physical. There's also a badass new Tough patch for you to earn.


The snake represents the obstacles in your life, the challenges we all face.


Charming the Snake is a way of life for the Green Berets (Army Special Forces) - an approach to problem solving that works in war, at home, and in business.



 

Snake Eaters & Snake Charmers

Green Berets don’t face the world’s problems alone. As a team they embrace chaos, make friends, and influence others.


Green Berets train armies to be their best -- then work with them to achieve mission success, together. We call that Charming the Snake. It’s a process that requires skills in leadership as well as rapport and team building.


Skills we teach you. Skills you put to use at your Challenge.
