It is time to raise the CSAUP bar….
Sign up now for a Custom F3 GORUCK Heavy on 3/13/15
GORUCK Heavy is the Ultimate Team Event. A heavy is 24+ hours, 35+ miles and allows Cadre to teach more leadership and teamwork under stress.
As F3 we have completed 7 custom GORUCK Challenges and 1 upcoming in Columbia, SC on 11/21/14. Only 8 Men in F3 have earned the Red Heavy Patch.
Time to fix that.

Training – F3 Bootcamps, Ruck focused workouts and rucking 15+ miles each week is needed (Minimum). A marathon ruck is highly recommended and will allow you to test your feet, gear and conditioning for this event. We will organize 1 – 2 marathon rucks.
– “There is a difference between thriving and surviving the Heavy” – Dora
– “You need to make sure you are familiar with your gear, practice with what you will have with you during Heavy, maneuvering through equipment should become second nature.” – Friday
– GORUCK 6 Week training program (link here)
– SPEARHEAD Pathfinder Program (link here) (Pathfinder Class 04 starts 12/1, earn your patch)
– Ruck Focused Training (link here)
Gear – if you have done a challenge you know what you might need and prefer. Please look here at GORUCK’s packing list. What you need will be determined by the weather that Friday & Saturday.
The biggest question is boots or shoes. F3 guys that have done a Heavy have used Salomon XD Pro 3D, Oakley Water Boots and Keen Boots. You will need 3 – 4 pairs of good socks. Don’t fail to plan and train. Testing your equipment at Heavy is a plan for failure and will create a long day for you.
Communication – Updates will be done via this F3Nation.com post and via email once you have paid.
