We’ve put on over 10,000 Rucking Events — in the real world — since 2010. Rucking together is the foundation for the GORUCK community and cold beers at the end is our way of life.

THE GORUCK CHALLENGE
The GORUCK Challenge is our flagship and original team building event - we’ve led over 10,000 since 2010. At your Challenge, you’ll have some team building fun organized by your Cadre. You will stay with your class from start to finish, you’ll ruck some miles and really get to know the other participants as you become a team. We recommend some rucksack training prior — all who do are encouraged to show up. If the weight gets too heavy, your team is there to help.
When you successfully complete the Challenge, your Cadre will hand you a cold beer and a patch that will never be for sale.

- Fun ruck it or race for time - your call
- This is our kind of fun and we have cold victory beers at the finish line
Firearms Training and Survival events meant to prepare you for anything and sharpen the best tool you have: your mind. Our Cadre have honed their skills instructing hundreds of thousands of students in both training and in war. But this training is not about them, it’s about and for people of ALL ABILITIES who want to become more capable, competent, and confident. The knowledge you gain makes you a hard target.
Special Forces training tests athletes across a broad array of activities to ensure well-rounded strength, agility, and endurance. GORUCK harkens back to those roots in a 2-Day competition of grit that features an obstacle course, rucking, weighted challenges, running, sprinting, jumping, rowing and sandbag work. This type of competition has not been done anywhere else.
Selection is a 48+ hour individual event and dubbed the toughest endurance event in the world. Our Cadre will enforce a standard adopted from our roots in Special Forces Assessment and Selection. Those participants who do not meet the standard at any point will be performance dropped at our discretion.
2” x 3” pieces of cloth with no monetary value so what’s the deal? The GORUCK spearhead is based on the First Special Service Force’s spearhead and honors our roots in the US Army Special Forces.
Successfully complete any GORUCK Event and you'll earn a patch. They’re not for sale, not today not ever. The only way to get the patch is to earn it.
