About The Event

Price increases will happen 2 months out, also at that time we need to be halfway or close to halfway (50%) to the number we are aiming for or the event will be cancelled at that time (typically the events we have run we are there by then, the events we have cancelled we typically are far off). Bearing we are halfway then we still need to get within 75% of the number by 1 month out or we will cancel it. If we hit the 75% mark we will plan on doing the event with the hopes we get to at least 100% the number we are aiming for. You can see where the event stands HERE, updates will typically be made by the end of the week.

PRICE INCREASE - $155.00 11/19/2023 and after.

Each event will have a unique mix of both sandbag and ruck based workouts. The start point will be our home base, you can store as much food or water there as you see fit for this event, extra gear/layers, ruck/SB weights, foam rollers, voodoo floss, etc. I will also have my TheraDrill with me for any participants to use. Our goal is to keep you fueled and primed going into each movement, especially those competing. There will be downtime between movements/workouts to roll out, stretch, change gear, use the bathroom, etc.  

If doing Non-Competitive Division you can attend with multiple weights to change out or a single weight as long as they are a minimum 10 lb ruck and 20 lb sandbag. If not competing, you will not have to go through the weigh in process. If you want to compete in the Competitive Division you need to follow the below required weights. If you are unable to continue in the Competitive Division you can drop out and adjust your weight accordingly to be in the non-competitive division, you will not place at all in the competitive division. 


  • If over 160 lbs (with base layers) you will be required to have a 60 lb Sandbag and 35 lb dry ruck (all equipment counts as weight minus water and food).
  • If under 160 lbs (with base layers) you will be required to have a 40 lb Sandbag and 25 lb dry ruck (all equipment counts as weight minus water and food).

Throughout the event there will be specific points where points can be earned individually and as a team. Team points earned will be distributed to all team members equally. Some examples of how to earn points could be...

  • Finish times for workouts
  • Rep counts for AMRAPs
  • Run Times
  • Ruck Times
  • Coupon Carry Times
  • Team Based movements
  • Leadership

At the end of the event we will tally up all the points and see where the rankings place people! If in the top 3 you will be eligible for prizes.
