Master of Sand

Complete both days of training and earn the special Master of Sand patch.

“Sandbag and Ruck Training Coaching Course: The Force Multiplier” is a two day course offered to the public on all things sandbag and ruck training (SRT). The course educates anyone who would like to integrate SRT into their training repertoire, whether they are training themselves or coaching others. This course focuses on education, however there will be a great deal of movement involved as well. On day one participants will be learning all about SRT while moving weight, rucking, and coaching SRT movements. Day two will be focused on testing so that participants can exhibit what they've learned. At the end of day one, participants will walk away with a patch. Upon passing the day two testing components, participants will earn a certificate of course completion as well. If participants opt out of Day 2 testing, completing that component at a future event is an option. All participants, whether participating in one or two days, will receive access to the SRT Handbook.

Testing components (Day 2)

  • 12 mile ruck march with 20/30# in 3:30
  • Immediately following the 12 mile ruck march, complete SRT workout "DT" 40/60# sandbag under 30 minutes
  • Pass a 30-question multiple choice test (80% or 24/30 is passing)

At the end of this course participants will be able to:

  • Understand the history of GORUCK and Rucking
  • Model and describe efficient rucking form, how to pack a ruck, how to wear a ruck
  • Teach others how to execute all sandbag/rucksack movements efficiently
  • Modify sandbag/rucksack movements appropriately for all movement limitations
  • Understand the connection of mobility and flexibility for strength building and back health
