Bragg Heavy

"When you get knocked down, you get right back up. It doesn’t matter if it’s sports or combat or life. You get right back up."
– Major Joe Warner, Green Beret

Bragg Heavy has been described as the King of All Rucks. 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 Heavy patch. This is the unofficial cold weather GRT Family Reunion. In Special Forces fashion, also expect a huge Ruckoff afterwards.


24+ HOURS, 40+ MILES. THE ULTIMATE TEAM EVENT. AVERAGE COMPLETION RATE: 50%

  • Dry Bag (or equivalent, such as a contractor bag) with a change of clothes. If you’re really cold, you’ll be really glad you have this. Be sure to bring one (1) pair of extra socks. You’ll carry this Dry Bag in your ruck.
  • Boots (MACV-1 Boots) are recommended over sneakers, based on the support you need over all the miles and all the weight. Under no circumstances should you wear Gore-Tex or other “waterproof” boots or socks.

  • Photo ID and $20 cash just in case
  • As a class, you need one (1) 50 lb. class weight and one American Flag. No wheels will be attached to the team weight and it must be in compliance with Special Forces Rule #1: Always Look Cool. 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 Heavy, 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.
