If you fail one of these tests (potentially could be a rope climb, timed ruck, timed run, AMRAP reps, etc) then you will be dropped from the event. The standard is the standard. Over the course of the whole event you will do roughly 2 weeks or more of HDT SB&R based workouts, timed rucks, timed runs, team based movements, cognitive challenges, and more.
