Registration Closing Date
Saturday, December 31, 2016 @ 11:59 PM (EST)
$500 for entry to five GORUCK Challenge classes. The GORUCK Challenge is an epic adventure led by current and former Special Operations members. To successfully complete the Challenge, you and your team of Challenge takers must all wear a GORUCK backpack – (check out the different styles here: http://www.goruck.com/shop/) stuffed with approximately 20 lbs of bricks as you run across a grueling trek ranging from 15-20 miles and lasting from 8-10 hours.
A few notes about the five-pack
-The five pack doesn't get you into sold out classes. - You can't apply past Challenges to this and "upgrade" to the Five Pack. - Whatever gear you order here will be waiting for you at the first of your five selected Challenges. - There is a one week cancelation policy. If you cannot attend, and you let us know with at least a week's warning, we can move you to a different class/Challenge. Unfortunately, if you cancel within one week of the class, you're out one of your five pack.
Here's the deal
When you show up to your start time, we will have one GORUCK bag per Challenge taker. You have a few options regarding which bag you get to use.
For those eager to take a brand new GORUCK bag through the Challenge and break, you can pre-purchase the bag of your choice at 30% off when registering online now. Note-30% discount applies ONLY to the bag, not the registration fee, and appears as a supplemental charge (30% discount already accounted for) in the registration. Your bag will be waiting at the start of the first of the Challenges you select here. It will NOT be delivered to you prior to the Challenge date or at a later Challenge.
You can choose from the bags available at the start of the Challenge. Some may be new, some may be already distressed from past Challenges. Unless you pre-purchase the bag of your choosing, we cannot guarantee that you will get to use your preferred bag.
Not surprisingly, we’ve seen some pretty strong emotional attachments develop between Challenge takers and the bags they use on this epic adventure. If you did not pre-purchase a bag but end up wanting to take a Challenge bag home with you, you can purchase with a check or credit card any of the distressed bags at a 20% discount upon completion of the event.
If you didn't buy a bag before or at the Challenge, afterwards we'll send you a code so you can purchase one for 15% off.
The purchase of a GORUCK bag is NOT mandatory though they are central to the experience of each Challenge taker. Bags that are not purchased are either re-used in future Challenges or sold at a premium as distressed bags at goruck.com.
Who is the Challenge for?
It’s not for everyone, but successful Challenge takers include a broad range of adventure seekers. If you have serious concerns or need much more information on how to prepare, it’s probably not for you. Our aim is for everyone who takes on the Challenge to finish, but we will not talk you into signing up. The obstacles you face are all mental, so those who do the best come with some physical base and a positive mindset.
In legal speak
The GORUCK Challenge is not for reasonable people. It is an unreasonable undertaking in terms of the risk you are assuming. While past injuries have been at a minimum, physical strains are extreme and you will have to sign a death waiver prior to beginning the Challenge.
Additional details are NOT forthcoming. The distance, events, and time to completion are at the discretion of the cadre. The ultimate test is mental, but physical demands are extreme and the Challenge is not for everyone. Those who make it share a bond well earned. You simply have to experience it for yourself.
If you complete the Challenge, you earn: - The GORUCK Tough Patch. The patch is not, and never will be, for sale. Those who have the patch earned it and the respect that comes along with wearing it. - Lifetime membership on Team GORUCK and access to the GORUCK Tough Group on Facebook. We hope you’ll join us at anything and everything. We’ll let you know what we’re up to, you let us know what you’re up to, and we’ll all try to be up to it together. We’ve got a few ideas, but we’re looking to you to tell us and organize yourselves. - Invitation to all alumni-only events.
