GORUCK Challenges

It's Not About You

Over 2,500 events later, these are still impossible to describe. Like all the best things in life, you have to experience it for yourself.

What’s different about GORUCK Challenges?

Your class is led from start to finish by a Special Operations Cadre whose job is to build a team by pushing you to overcome, together. You stay with your class the entire time aka a true team event, never in any way confused with a road race or a mud run. And no, your Cadre is not a drill sergeant and no, this is not bootcamp. That stuff belongs to the military, this is simply an event about your team.

The patch you earn represents a significant accomplishment and will never be for sale. Wear it with pride.

Heavy means more physical and mental stress which means more leadership and teamwork training. Some lessons can only be learned through time, and 24+ hours is a lot of time.
