Event Overview

The Heavy Challenge kicks off an HTLS (Heavy, Tough, Light, Scavenger) weekend. Sign up for and complete all three Challenges and the Scavenger to earn the coveted HTLS patch.
4 June 1944, OPERATION OVERLORD, the liberation of Europe begins. Commemorate the D-Day Landings by rucking in the footsteps of America’s Greatest  Generation who liberated France and Europe. This special event will be conducted  in multiple venues to give a first-hand experience of the exploits of Allied Forces  during the D-Day Landings. Fact: these are sacred grounds everyone should visit at  least once in their lifetime. Books and movies will never do it justice.
