I saw this online when i was looking into the PA ToughMudder as a nice alternative to a half marathon. Its run by all former SF guys And started by a former green beret (Jason McCarthy) I ran the event on April 3rd. It wasnt bad, at first i thought it may not be exactly what i had in mind alot of prior service guys but i thought it would be toned down for the older guys i saw there (late 30's sorry guys haha) but it wasn't.
The idea is a group of people 30 or less in big cities around the US, throw on a ruck with 4 bricks, camelback and whatever other supplies you bring i.e. powerbars, gel shots (about 30 lbs), and you go for a run/physical challenge its at least 10 hours/15 miles all kinds of exercises sprints with this pack and a bunch of "coupons" (heavy s*** that the instructor finds along the path and says "sure pick that up and bring it with us") all over the city.
it works on brigning everyone together as a team like any military type exercise. Sign up if you guys are interested, i loved it and i'm signing up for another one in Delaware in early May. good livin'
I signed up for the June DC Challenge. I might do the July 4th one too.
This sounds awesome :) but i live in Athens :(

Ran the GoRuck in Cinci, Ohio. Here is my overly dramatized review of it, kind of a long read:
