Goruck Tough Challenge – Washington, DC

JFK Memorial
“And so, my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you–ask what you can do for your country.”
– President John F. Kennedy

JFK remains an inspiration, and an icon, and a favorite amongst our Special Forces Cadre because as President, JFK officially authorized the wear of the Green Beret. Whether in Dallas where he passed too soon, Washington DC where he lived and was laid to rest (at Arlington National Cemetery), or in the great state of Massachusetts which was his home, you will learn about important aspects of his life and the decisions he made that have had a profound impact on our nation.

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