About this event

Operation Clear Field

Niantic, the makers of Ingress and Pokémon GO, have partnered with GORUCK to bring special Operation Clear Field events to a location near you.

Operation Clear Field combines a service-themed scavenger hunt with competitive Ingress exploration for everyone the world over.

OCF will end NLT 2:00pm local time.

How It Works

You and your small team (RES, ENL, or XFAC) get an old-school paper task list from an on-the-ground GORUCK Cadre. Your team then strategically plans to earn the most points and explore the best spots around, Ingressing and Instagramming and earning "Cool Points" as you go. The task list could include Ingress portals, points of interest, historic sites and trails, other teams, and much more, including quick impact service actions - the more creative, the better!

 

You'll create an Instagram account for your team with your team name. Only one person needs to run it per team (we recommend that the person running it has an unlimited data plan). You will use your team’s Instagram account and photograph/video your team accomplishing different tasks, which you will tag with the GORUCK/Ingress account (@goruckingress).

 

How To Win

The team with the most points at the completion of the event receives the ultra-exclusive Gold OCF patch, and second place receives Silver. Your GORUCK Cadre is prepared to execute a tiebreaker as needed. All teams who participate and earn at least 30 points receive the official Ingress in-game badge. And everyone who shows up makes a difference in the local community. Come ready, Agents!

Please note times listed are local. If possible, try to carpool or use rideshare apps as parking may be limited.
