GORUCK is The Rucking Company and we believe there is no better way to get to know an urban environment than with friends under a ruck. The Star Course is inspired by our own Special Forces roots, here’s a challenge for those of you who seek such things - The GORUCK Star Course 15K, the first rucking series of its kind:
Finishers earn the 15K Star Course patch, which will never be for sale.
You and your team of 2-5 (including you) show up at the Start Point. A GORUCK Cadre will issue you a list of waypoints. The route you and your team choose will be your own, so choose wisely. The minimum distance possible will be just over 5 kilometers. You can expect to see some of the best sites in your city.
Prior to starting the clock, we’ll ensure that you make a successful comms check with our remote support team via text message. At each waypoint, you’ll be responsible for texting a picture of your team. This will serve as verification of your mileage, and by the end you’ll have a great album of photos to document the experience.
NOTE: This is not a Cadre-led event and there are no push-ups or smoke sessions.
Register as an individual, ruck as a team (you are responsible for forming or finding a team of 2-5 ruckers)
Includes: the opportunity to earn the finisher’s patch, and celebration at the end point.
If you come in under 3.5 hours, you and your teammates earn the patch. If you don’t, there’s always next year.
Everyone earns a high five (and a hug if you want one) at the finish. We’ll see ya there.
Brad grew up in rural Missouri with nothing much to do besides drink beer and shoot firearms (never at the same time of course). He said becoming a Special Forces Weapons Sergeant wasn’t much different than that. These days he still enjoys beer and guns but he also likes to mix it up with bringing his own special dose of Good Livin' to GORUCK Events.
