**Note: these items brought with you will be required to fit inside your rucksack at the start of Team Assessment. They will not count toward the 45 lbs dry weight requirement.
The GORUCK PT Test is the first event of GORUCK Team Assessment. Minimum standards to continue to the rest of GORUCK Team Assessment are as follows:
There is a minimum amount to get max points per exercise. A teammate is allowed to NOT meet the minimum requirement as long as their teammate can make up the deficiency. The deal is the more you do over the minimum, the more points you get toward your team’s overall points to win TM assessment. If a teammate has to compensate for their teammate’s underperformance at any point during the PT Test, then your team only makes the minimum amount of overall points even though they may have scored more on all other exercises.
