About The Event

The last 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.

1st PRICE INCREASE - $345.00 2/7/2024 to 4/6/2024

2nd PRICE INCREASE - $395.00  4/7/2024 and after.

This event will have a unique mix of both sandbag and ruck based workouts over the 24+ hours. 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, 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 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).

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.
