Trailblazers

Minorities have always played a role throughout US military history, starting with the colored units during the US Civil War & continuing on during the Korean Conflict. Finally, during the Vietnam War units became integrated, different races fighting side by side. Due to the fact that the colored units not only proved they could fight & perform just as well as the all white units, some units had superior success rates than the all white units. Some of this units have notoriety & you may be familiar with then & their stories some of them you have never heard of. This GORUCK event will highlight the accomplishments of the Buffalo Soldiers, 2nd Ranger Co & Tuskegee Airmen among others as well. Welcome to the Trailblazers GORUCK Events!

10-12 HOURS, 15-20 MILES. THE ORIGINAL CHALLENGE. AVERAGE COMPLETION RATE: 94%

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.
