Recon Raider

THROUGH THE SAME GATES AS THE LEGENDS

The intent of the GORUCK Recon Raider event weekend is to give GRTs an opportunity to storm the same beaches and climb the same peaks as our MARSOF do in their training, in their backyard. These hallowed grounds and holy waters are where GORUCK MARSOF Cadre will dive deep into their history and lineage presenting a first class event weekend unlike any other. Dedicated entirely to Honoring the Fallen, while touching on historic battles and key roles MARSOF played while conducting operations all the way back from WWII, up to present times in the fight against the Global War on Terror. GRTs must come ready to be challenged as a team unlike any other GORUCK event. These events are designed and focused to push participants way beyond their individual physical and mental capabilities. All the while, encapsulating the pure essence and power of team building and camaraderie.

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