A HISTORIC SPECIAL FORCES RUCKING CHALLENGE
In subsequent historical documents, there are numerous attempts to decrease the mileage requirements of War Department General Order No. 44, citing that it was essentially too hard and “discouraged enlistments”. Fortunately, for those of us who yearn for a challenge, the 12 mile ruck march remains the standard in Special Forces and in the military on a whole.
Following the footsteps of our infantry ancestors plus our own Special Forces inspiration, here’s a challenge for those of you who seek such things - The GORUCK 12-Miler Star Course, the first rucking series of its kind. Finishers earn the 12-Miler patch, which will never be for sale.
HOW IT WORKS
This is not like a GORUCK Challenge and there are no push-ups or smoke sessions. You'll get a map and a list of waypoints. The route you and your team choose will be your own, so choose wisely.
Teams of 2-5
You must ruck in at least a team of 2. At each waypoint, you’ll be responsible for posting a picture of your team. This will serve as verification of your mileage, and by the end you’ll have a great album of photos to document the experience.
Or less to complete the 12 miles.
10 or 20 lb Ruck Plate on your back depending on your body weight, it’s called rucking. New to rucking? Check out the TRAINING PLAN.
