Bragg Basic

Join us for the 1st ever Bragg Basic event! The miles, the weight, the freezing cold water, the wind and the rain–and it all goes down on the same hallowed grounds where Special Forces candidates train during the Special Forces Qualification Course.

While in Fayetteville, make sure to visit the Airborne and Special Operations Museum with your fellow GRT’s to learn about the storied history of the people who have trained on the same grounds as the Joe Warner Memorial Bragg Heavy. Then come and pay your respects by earning the coveted Bragg Basic patch. This is the unofficial cold weather GRT Family Reunion. In Special Forces fashion, also expect a huge Ruckoff afterwards


5+ Hours. Lots of PT. Lots of miles. Details not forthcoming.

Pain is the theme of all GORUCK Challenges. Our Special Forces Cadres will ensure it’s pain with purpose by pushing individuals out of their comfort zones and building each class into a team. Train hard and show up ready. It’s worth it.

WHAT TO BRING

  • A rucksack aka backpack (Rucker recommended)
  • Ruck Plate = to your weight requirement

    • If you weigh < 150 lbs = 20 lb. Ruck Plate
  • Hydration Bladder: Source 3L recommended
  • Nalgene bottle (1L) or equivalent (electrolytes recommended)
  • Oral Rehydration Salts (or comparable)
  • Headlamp with extra batteries
  • Reflective Ruck Bands (or equivalent) on your ruck
  • First Aid Kit (small)
  • Face Mask (Optional)
  • Gloves (1 pair) Not medical gloves, working gloves
  • Hand Sanitizer/Wipes - 1 bottle Purell, 1 package of baby wipes (or equivalent)
  • Windbreaker (only if the temperature is expected below 60 ℉)

  • As a class, you need one (1) 25 lb. class weight and one American Flag. Use your event’s Facebook page to meet your class, organize training, and coordinate team weight details.
  • Flip-flops (not required) - upon completion of a GORUCK Light, it’s one of the seven great feelings in the world to take your shoes and socks off and put flip flops on. It also makes the hell-yeah-I-earned-my-patch beer taste even better. A fresh shirt or jacket can go a long way, too.
