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 5K, the first rucking series of its kind:
Finishers earn the 5K 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.
Registration for this event will close on the Thursday prior to the event date at 8:00pm
If you come in under 2.5 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.
Ranger Bat, endurance events, and the life of a Green Beret made Mocha the million dollar man. As in, that's how much hardware he has in him. He loves his family, long walks with the four legged kids and 8-shot mocha's!
Ranger Kurth is a native Texan and calls Houston home, where he manages a sports bar downtown. Being a full time night crawler, single & no kids, allows him plenty of time to be creative with his GORUCK event planning. So expect some old school Ranger Rucking.
