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.
Matt currently has a Masters in Homeland Security and Criminal Justice Management, so you should probably stay on the right side of Johnny Law when he's around. He currently resides in Virginia with his wife and four sons aka mini assault team, where he enjoys cheering on the Saints and reminiscing about gator hunting back home in Louisiana.
