Alpha Shooter is a test of true grit and skill that will pair the GORUCK Tough rucking strength and stamina with firearms marksmanship and tactical acuity. You will be put against your peers from the GRT community, firearms community, and professionals alike in a test of both physical and mental fortitude. Anybody can be fast and accurate with enough time spent on the flat range. Most can put in the time and gain the endurance necessary to ruck long and fast; but few can combine the two under pressure. Alpha Shooter is the ultimate opportunity to test yourself against your fellow badasses.
The Alpha Shooter course will have two separate events: Pistol and Rifle. Each participant will have the opportunity to participate in both events.
Start times will be staggered in waves. You will ruck a 5k (in under 45 min.) for the pistol portion and a 10k (in under 90 min.) for the rifle portion. Weapons will be staged at the start/end point of the route, which will be at the shooting bay where you will shoot immediately after the ruck. All courses of fire will be walked through and you will be provided ample time for gear preparation and ammo management prior to commencement. Cadre will enforce strict safety protocols paramount in all GORUCK firearms training events. Those who score over a 70% average and make the ruck time drills for both events will be awarded the GORUCK shooter patch. Those who do not pass can come back and try again at a later stage. This is an individual event.
Alpha Shooter is time to show off your Rucking and Firearm Skills and it pays to be a winner. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place participants will each recieve an additional Gold, Silver, and Bronze patch. Sign up, train up, and show up for a chance to earn this one of a kind patch.
