GORUCK Challenge

Anyone ever do one, might sign up for one this June?

A little more info, this is a 10 hour, 20 mile military style endurance challenge. And oh by the way it's done with a 50 lbs pack on your back.

This will make the tough mudder look like a tickle fight.

I think that's great too. I'm using "starting my own CF" as my motivation recently. I have to look and play the part.

Any additional news regarding your investor, you think you might go that route?

not sure if I posted in the thread but he sent me some locations. All too close to the other local one. I do not want to compete with them and step on their toes. I'm still preparing to start my own out of my garage though. Worst case scenario is I start there and then we get this up and running. He's moving a little slower than I'd like. Maybe when I'm certified at the end of this month it will move quicker though.

Re: GORUCK Challenge

Definitely want to do this next year. Injuries, losing my job, and drinking postponed it for most of spring and summer.

Hope it's better than TM. I did my 8th and last one in Wisconsin and it was soooo boring and poorly put together. It's all about profit now, not like it used to be.

These events are kept small on purpose, 35 people per Cadre so I doubt they will get sloppy like a TM.

One of the guys I am doing the GORUCK with I did a mudder with last summer, it was his 10th, he feels the same way you do about them.

Re: GORUCK Challenge

Yeah I think doing WTM last year made the normal courses suck. But they have gone down hill in location, and obstacles in the past year. The last one was mostly flat out running up and down a field and a lot of "obstacles" like push ups, and they made a spectator route right up the middle of the course. As soon as I saw the course and some little kid wearing a future mudder shirt, I said f these events. Now it's a family outing with fat people in spandex.

Yeah, the mudder I did was in Vermont, there were a few people who dropped out within the first half mile, by the looks of them they had never left the couch. What were these people thinking, the event requires traveling 11 miles on foot up and down a mountain, you can't just get off your fat ass and do one if you are not an active person.
