  • Minimum 20lb Ruck & 40lb SB if under 150lbs w/ base layers on

Breakdown: For the first 24 hours of this event you will not be dropped due to performance as long as you are not slowing down the timeline of the event. The only way you will not make it to the 24 hour point is if you are medically dropped or you voluntarily withdrawal. The last 12-16 hours there will be standards you will have to meet. 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. This is an event like no other and will mentally and physically push you beyond any point you have been prior.
