Star Course

A PRESIDENTIAL SPECIAL FORCES RUCKING CHALLENGE

Star Course Patch
In 1908, Teddy Roosevelt issued an executive order to members of the military, later echoed by JFK: “Do 50 miles in under 20 hours.”

Pretty straightforward, eh?

In JFK’s time it became a national craze, a challenge accepted by people of all walks of life despite claims in those days of the growing softness of the American people. Claims not too dissimilar to those made these days.

We believe those doubting the generations of today are looking in the wrong places. Many of us are not only up to such a 50 Mile Challenge, but we’re starving for some way to push ourselves to those new limits, and beyond.

 

JK

Echoing Teddy Roosevelt and JFK and adding in our own Special Forces inspiration, here’s a challenge for those of you who seek such things - The GORUCK 50-Miler Star Course, the first rucking ultramarathon of its kind. Finishers earn the GORUCK 50-Miler patch, which will never be for sale.

 

HOW IT WORKS

Time

50 Miles

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.

 

Service

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.

 

Time

20 Hours

Or less to complete the 50 miles.

 

Time

Weight

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.
