GORUCK Nation you asked for it and now we are going to make it a reality! For those seeking a greater challenge, ultra-distance, who want to push themselves to go the extra mile, in this case an extra 25-miles, here it is the first 75-mile Star course. You not only going to see stars, but a sunset and maybe a sunrise all in one event. GORUCK is proud to announce the first 75-mile ultra-rucking event. We are going back to where it all started with our first 50-mile Star Courses in our Nation’s Capital. We will start at 15:00 pm on Friday and hope to see all those that start end on Saturday at 17:00 pm.
Finishers earn the GORUCK 50-Miler patch, which will never be for sale.
You as a solo participant or 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 75 Miles. You can expect to see the best sites in your city, and you can expect at least one long movement taking you to the outskirts, and possibly beyond. 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.
Team members are required to register individually, but approximately 10-days prior to the start of the event a team registration/individual registration form will be sent to all participants. You are responsible for forming or finding a team of 2-5 ruckers.
If you come in under 26 hours, you and your teammates earn the patch. If you don’t, there’s always next year.
It’s about the journey, and finishing is a noble and worthy goal. But for those kindred spirits who want a little healthy competition, we’re offering some GORUCK cash prizes for the winners.

Everyone earns a beer (and a hug) at the finish. We’ll see ya there.
