GRT Reunion

GRT Reunion

Even been under a log with awesome people and wanted to get to know those weirdos better? That’s what the GRT Reunion is all about.

Meet GRT’s from around the country for a Ruckoff on Friday night, then hit the town together on Saturday for a Light Challenge that is all smiles and a few rucking miles in the best parts of town.

Jason (GORUCK’s Founder) will be joining as a participant and GORUCK’s most senior Cadre will lead the event.

Earn your special GRT Reunion patch and celebrate some more with an after-party with a special Cadre Roast, broadcasted live on The GORUCK Show.
