About this event


St. Patrick's Day

"You gotta try your luck at least once a day, because you could be going around lucky all day and not even know it."
– James Dean

According to Irish tradition, those who find a four-leaf clover are destined for good luck, as each leaf in the clover symbolizes good omens for faith, hope, love, and luck for the finder. The even better news is you can make your own luck. St. Patrick also said (we’re pretty sure) that earning a four-leaf clover is worth a million times finding one. And that’s a lot of luck.Expect to learn the history of this quintessentially Irish holiday while carrying heavy stuff with great people. Shenanigans (that may start early) to follow.

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.

  • 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.

Fearing he would “miss the war,” Chris dropped out of the Nation’s oldest private military college, joined the Army, and was awarded the Green Beret. Known on his teams as either Norwich or Boy Scout, the tenants of each are captured in ink on his back. Now separated from Group he tries to impart those lessons learned to his small town police department. Chris is happily married to a remarkable woman and enjoys raising a daughter with a balance of glitter and grit.
