Ponce De Leon
“Here in Florida, we have something special…the blessing of size. There’s enough land here to hold all the ideas and plans we can possibly imagine.”
– Walt Disney

All thanks to Ponce De Leon, who discovered ‘La Florida’ in 1513 and not to mention The Fountain of Youth, too. This Challenge provides a unique look, under rucks of course, at our nation’s oldest city–the sites, the battles, the fort, and the history. Amongst Cadre and participants, feedback is that St. Augustine is in the top 5 best cities in America to do a Challenge–a hidden gem in our country. And it doesn’t hurt that it’s a short ride up A1A from GORUCK HQ.

10-12 HOURS, 15-20 MILES. THE ORIGINAL CHALLENGE. AVERAGE COMPLETION RATE: 94%
