Independence Day

"We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately."
― Benjamin Franklin

The Founding Fathers risked everything in the name of a dream called America. Theirs was a difficult, violent, and honorable calling–independence, that is. At the Independence Day GORUCK Challenge, expect a history lesson as we honor their sacrifice and enjoy the benefits of freedom by living life to its fullest under rucks, shoulder to shoulder with fellow patriots touring your town all the while singing Happy Birthday to America (amongst other festivities). And good news: Sam Adams is certain to make an appearance once you have earned your patch. Happy Birthday America!

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 = 30 lb. Ruck Plate
    • 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 (something that will not repeatedly fall off, scarves not recommended)
  • 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 ℉)
  • Photo ID and $20 cash just in case
  • 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.

Ricky V

East San Diego,Philippines, Iraq, Afghanistan, Asia and the Pacific Rim

 

Ricky V comes from a family of warriors and patriots, his brother is a Special Forces Team Sergeant, his son is Airborne Infantry destined to be SF and his Company Sergeant Major is married to his cousin. Ricky spends his free time seeking out the perfect wave and eating ramen during Temporary Duty in order to buy surfboards with his per-diem. Next time you see him ask yourself, "Would you rather have $1,000,000 or his head full of nickels?"
