GORUCK EVENTS

BUILDING BETTER AMERICANS

We are often asked why we carry logs, keep odd hours, intentionally subject ourselves to stress, and preach putting others before ourselves. The answer is simple: We are building a bridge between the civilian and military worlds. We do so by building better Americans, one Cadre-led event at a time. GORUCK’s Cadre are all decorated combat veterans of Special Operations. They teach what they know and in that process, Cadre and participant alike come out changed for the better.


Welcome to GORUCK’s signature events requiring bricks, rucks, and you. Good Livin’ from our Cadre is a transcendent experience because it’s not about you, it’s about the people next to you. You will emerge changed for the better by the end of your Light, Challenge, Heavy, or Selection. Our Cadre will show you what you are capable of when you work as a team or when you face your own limitations head on.

Quick Hits

  • Based on Special Operations training
  • Team Building through diversity
  • Focus is on your team, not yourself (except for GORUCK Selection)
  • Requires a rucksack and additional weight

GORUCK Expeditions are multi-day adventures with hands-on classes that stress situational awareness and prepare you for survival in any environment. Leave better prepared to face your surroundings through instruction on mountain climbing, survival planning, wilderness medicine, and spycraft. GORUCK Expeditions are not simply weekend getaways; you will be tested and evaluated on your successful application of your new skills. What you learn might save your life or the lives of your loved ones someday.
