It is so exciting to finally be able to finally see most of the GORUCK 2020 event schedule! Missing from the list (at least for now) is GORUCK Constellation. According to Cadre Garret in ADR 113 the 2020 Constellation events will be added soon once a few of the 2019 beta events have completed.
The 2020 Event Schedule
The Event Data
This has been one of the first times that I’ve had two years worth of event data from the GORUCK Event Tracker so I figured why not pull some fun numbers out of it.
For what it’s worth this data is only as good as the information I’ve pulled from GORUCK and doesn’t factor in events that were cancelled. In addition there’s a chance that the 2020 calendar isn’t complete yet and the 2019 calendar, for the most part, is finalized. If anything I’d except to see the Firearms/Medical category to increase over time in 2020… those events are harder to find locations for which makes planning them a little difficult.
What We Expected?
This is about what I expected to see after Jason announced the 2020 event changes. Less everything across the board (excluding the Star Course) and a HUGE reduction in HTL events. There’s going to be no Selection (probably) for 2020 and Jason made good on his word that he’d put together a Double Heavy event. Next year is shaping up to be something interesting.
It’s also worth noting that the new Star Course distances (5k, 10k, and 15k) aren’t on the calendar yet. There’s already a 38% increase in Star Course events and there’s a fair number that aren’t even on the schedule yet. GORUCK is going big on the Star Course for 2020 and that’s something I’m very excited about.
What are your thoughts on the 2020 event schedule? It’s definitely a lot more limited than 2019 but I wouldn’t necessarily say that’s a bad thing. In addition some smaller towns are getting events (thanks to the ruck clubs there) which I’m glad to see. Let me know in the comments below!
