48+ HOURS, 80+ MILES. THE TOUGHEST ENDURANCE EVENT IN THE WORLD. AVERAGE PASS RATE: < 2%
Selection is an individual event. 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. Selection begins with a gear inspection and PT test. Selection registrations are non-transferable and non-refundable.
PACKING LIST AND GEAR INSPECTION
Your ruck must weigh minimum 45 lbs. at all times, not including water or food. We will weigh your ruck at the start of Selection. If your ruck does not weigh 45 lbs., you will be performance dropped. You will have access to our scale prior to the commencement of Selection.
Full packing list is available on the event page.
THE PT TEST
You must meet the PT test standards in order to be given the opportunity to continue to train. If you fail to pass any portion of the PT Test, you will not receive a refund and your experience will come to an end.
PT TEST STANDARDS
- 2 minutes: minimum 55 push-ups*
- 2 minutes: minimum 65 sit-ups.*
- 5-Mile Run: maximum time allotted is 40 minutes.*
- 12-Mile Ruck: maximum time allotted is 3 hours 30 minutes.**
Once the PT test is complete, the rest of Selection begins. At that point, you will take all instructions from the Cadre. If you pass, you will earn the GORUCK Selection patch. It will never be for sale.
* Push-ups, sit-ups, and the 5-mile run are done without a ruck. ** For the 12-mile ruck run, your ruck must weigh at least 45 lbs. at all times, not including water or food.
Patterned directly after Special Forces Selection, this event is a different beast altogether. The Cadre are actively trying to make you quit. Their role is to methodically enforce a standard very few people in the world could achieve. Selection is our only individual event and you will be performance dropped you if you fail to meet the standard.
