25+ hours, 26+ miles and 6 total workouts. The "cloverleaf" course is one of the toughest we've ever created. We chose Veterans Day to commemorate this event in Tampa Florida, home to the Military's Special Operations Command. We're inviting some familiar faces from both the Veteran, Ultra and OCR communities. Not for the weak or faint of heart, this event will challenge both newcomers and GORUCK regulars. We've pulled out all the stops and our friends from Yuengling and Team RWB are providing a fantastic venue, great food, free adult beverages and a Veterans day after-party you won't forget.
This Veteran's Day GORUCK has teamed up with Team RWB, Yuengling and Bravo Sierra to honor our Veterans the best way we know how, with a GORUCK Heavy. Team RWB's mission statement is to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity. Every year, more than 250,000 active duty service members transition out of the military, joining the 3.5 million post-9/11 veterans already living in communities nationwide. They face many challenges including isolation, weight gain, lack of purpose, and other health issues. Team Red, White & Blue is the antidote to the isolation and health challenges they face.The event will start and finish at the Yuengling Center in Tampa, Fl and end with Veterans day celebration hosted by Yuengling with friends and volunteers of Team RWB helping cheer you to the finish line. All profits will be donated towards Team RWB.
