Goruck Heavy Challenge – New York, NY

9/11 NYC
“I can hear you! The rest of the world hears you! And the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon.”
– President George W. Bush, September 14, 2001 at Ground Zero

The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, changed America and the lives of Americans forever. Our Cadre conduct 9/11 Commemorative events around the country to honor and remember those we lost: the courageous First Responders and the soldiers who fought in the Global War on Terrorism. Cadre and all willing participants will share their 9/11 story: where were you, how did it change your life? Never Forget.

24+ HOURS, 40+ MILES. THE ULTIMATE TEAM EVENT. AVERAGE COMPLETION RATE: 50%

Boots (MACV-1 Boots) are recommended over sneakers, based on the support you need over all the miles and all the weight. Under no circumstances should you wear Gore-Tex or other “waterproof” boots or socks.

Photo ID and $20 cash just in case

Use your event’s Facebook page to meet your class, organize training, and coordinate team weight details.
– Flip-flops (not required) – upon completion of a GORUCK Heavy, it’s one of the seven great feelings in the world to take your shoes and socks off and put flip flops on. It also makes the hell-yeah-I-earned-my-patch beer taste even better.
