July 28th Ruck Sim Preblast

This CSAUP event is open to all F3 PAX. If you are registered for GrowRuck 12 in September, this will be especially helpful in your preparation. YHC will serve as QIC. 

Five hour ruck event, to include PT, rucking, and leadership opportunities. See full packing list below. 

Saturday, July 28th @ 0300-0800
We will start on time. Late arriving PAX will incur penalties that will affect the entire team. We will rendezvous with Mothership PAX for bootcamp at 0700, and ENDEX at 0800 at the conclusion of Mothership.

STARTEX: South Hyde Lake Parking Lot (map pin)
Parking will be available at the gravel lot next to the South Hyde Lake Lot (map pin) and in the gravel lot across Walnut Grove (map pin
ENDEX: Mothership

To increase our 3S2T: Speed, Strength, Stamina, Toughness (physical) and Toughness (mental), because fatigue makes cowards of us all. When the people you care about need you, you need to be ready. You won’t be ready if you don’t put in the work. Come see what you’re made of in a “safe place”.

This is also a great opportunity to test your gear. Plan for your feet to get wet. We are guaranteed to get wet at GrowRuck, and you don’t want to find out 4 hours into a 13+ hour event that your shoe/sock situation is causing blisters and ruining your life.
