We have just learned of a new fitness competition launched through a partnership of GORUCK, Rogue, and Savage Race.
Here is the press release from GORUCK HQ
Special Forces training tests athletes across a broad array of activities to ensure well-rounded strength, agility, and endurance. We harken back to our roots in a 2-Day competition of grit that will feature the following:
- The Confidence Course (obstacles presented by Savage Rage)
- Weighted Challenges by Rogue Fitness
- Running, Sprinting, Jumping
- Sandbag Work
Top athletes from Rogue, GORUCK Selection, and the OCR (Obstacle Course Racing) scene will compete in the full schedule of events on Saturday, April 23 to earn the GORUCK Games patch. At the conclusion of Saturday’s schedule of events, cumulative points will be totaled, and the top 8 Males and the top 8 Females will advance to a tournament-style bracket on Sunday, April 24. This will culminate in a head-to-head competition between the final two athletes remaining (both male and female). The winners will be the 2022 GORUCK Games Champions.
We will be conducting an interview with GORUCK CEO, Jason McCarthy on January 25. At that time, we will be getting more details on The GORUCK Games which are happening as a part of Sandlot Jax.
