GCR Welcome Party & Ruck Training
TBD

GORUCK style Welcome Party, a little self-led PT, some fun under the ruck for a few miles, coupons optional. Ruck Off and ACRT to follow at a local favorite.

This local club training is designed to help you test out your gear, experience one type of GORUCK Welcome Party, get 2-4 miles in under your ruck with a team, take a turn being the team’s flag bearer, take a turn under a sandbag or other team weight (not required), hear some stories from past GORUCK events, and get to know other members of your local ruck club.

TWO Opportunities:
Saturday, TBD, 0900 (9:00 AM) and Sunday, TBD, 1400 (2:00 PM)
Both located at Hunter Park, 5804 E 91st St, Tulsa, OK 74137

The GORUCK Tough Challenge event is 12 hours, not 12 days, so pack accordingly. Ruck.Beer has an article to help you avoid overpacking. https://ruck.beer/goruck-packing-list/
This is in anticipation of the upcoming GORUCK events in 2021 (remember the club offers 30% discount to Tough & Basic, as well as Star Course).

Testing out your gear also includes your wind, rain, & cold resistance …and endurance. Look at training in “bad weather” this way: If it’s raining, strong winds, snowing, or blistering heat, the GORUCK Cadre are still going to call your name during Admin of the GORUCK event you registered for. They’re still going to expect you to bring your A game and DFQ. They’re still going to make the Welcome Party interesting. Why? Because that’s what they did when THEY trained. That’s what they did when they served. #weatherproof – “Take shelter” is the only exception.
“There is no bad weather, only inappropriate clothing.” – Ranulph “Ran” Fiennes, British explorer, holder of several endurance records, writer and poet.
