AN INTRODUCTION TO SPECIAL FORCES RUCKING CHALLENGE GORUCK is The Rucking Company and they believe there is no better way to get to know an urban environment than with friends under a ruck. The Star Course is inspired by their own Special Forces roots, here’s a challenge for those of you who seek such things – The GORUCK Star Course 5K, the first rucking series of its kind:
– 5 kilometers
– Teams of 2-5
– 10 or 20 lb Ruck Plate on your back depending on your body weight, it’s called rucking
– 2.5 hours to complete
Finishers earn the 5K Star Course patch, which will never be for sale.
HOW IT WORKS
You and your team of 2-5 (including you) show up at the Start Point. A GORUCK Cadre will issue you a list of waypoints. The route you and your team choose will be your own, so choose wisely. The minimum distance possible will be just over 5 kilometers. You can expect to see some of the best sites in your city.
Prior to starting the clock, we’ll ensure that you make a successful comms check with our remote support team via text message. At each waypoint, you’ll be responsible for texting 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.
