GORUCK HCL (Heavy/Challenge/Light) is even more than 100% official now… it’s actually on their website. That’s right… you can sign up for it now. The price is a steal at $175 for 3 events. You heard that right… for $175 you will be signed up for the March 27th Heavy, the March 29th Challenge, and the March 29th Light. If you would only like to take part in the Challenge or the Light with the HCL crew you can do so as well but you won’t be earning the custom HCL 001 patch. These new HCL Challenge and Light classes are in addition to the regularly scheduled events for that weekend. GORUCK created new events because of the potential time conflicts.
This event will be unlike anything you’ve ever done before and Cadre Bert is thinking there will be a pass rate of 0%. We need to prove him wrong so train hard, ruck long, and show up ready for 70+ miles of rucking. Don’t forget to join the GORUCK HCL Facebook Group if you are planning on training for this event. There is already a lot of good discussion going on there about snow gear and similar topics.
Are you upset that you don’t live in Seattle and can’t fly in? No need to fear… it has been stated a few times in the Tough group that this event (the HCL) will be traveling around to other cities as well. If you can’t make it out for the first HCL in Seattle there’s still a chance one will come to a city near you.
It’s official… I’ve signed up. Join me in this madness.
