12/29 Long Ruck Preblast

This event is aimed at PAX training for a GORUCK Star Course event, but all PAX are welcome. U-Rock will serve as QIC. 

U-Rock has identified seven (7) waypoints and is giving us 4 hours to hit them and get back to ENDEX. Depending on how we plan our route, we’ll cover 13-16 miles. One of the PAX will serve as Route Planner/Navigator. 

Saturday, December 27th @ 0500-0900
We will start on time. Do not be late!
