They brought back Beached in a beta form down in Florida then ran a Beached Beta Tough and a Beached Beta Light over in Traverse City. We were lucky enough to get an interview with GORUCK Senior Director BD for the Beached Beta in Florida (as well as an AAR from Kristie Iverson) and an interview with Corey Modrowski covering the Beached Beta Tough and Light. Those Beached events were temporarily renamed Poseidon then finally renamed to the event you see now: Immersion.
The GORUCK Expedition events were a little harder to follow but James V wrote an excellent AAR on the GORUCK Expedition Heavy he took part in.
GORUCK Expedition and GORUCK Immersion events fall under the “Survival” events category joining Constellation. Their packing lists are both large (like Constellation) and each include some fairly unique items. When we interviewed Jason recently we asked if 2018 would be the year of survival events and he mentioned a number of them were in the works.
GORUCK has a brand new page set up for their GORUCK Expedition events. None of them are close to use but here’s to hoping GORUCK will continue to add more events and bring one to the pacific northwest!
GORUCK has set up a brand new page for their GORUCK Immersion events. They’ll be bringing both an Immersion 6 and Immersion 12 to Seattle which only makes sense because we have so much water. Thankfully our event is in August so the weather should be pretty nice!
What are your thoughts on GORUCK continuing to expand into the survival events space? Going to sign up for one of these new events? We’d love to hear in the comments!
