GORUCK Constellation 12 is a 10 – 12 hour event designed to prepare individuals for a disaster scenario. The events were launched by GORUCK on March 7th, 2017 after two successful Constellation Beta events at GORUCK HQ.
What is Constellation 12?
The goal of the GORUCK Constellation events are to make you a “hard target” during a disaster by preparing you and giving you the tool set to succeed.
Natural disasters wreak havoc, manmade catastrophes strike terror, and chaos reigns. You’re forced to escape and evade with a ruck on your back, and those dearest to you by your side. The question you have to ask yourself is, are you a hard target… or an easy one?
The event is scenario driven with the end goal to “sharpen your mind” and prepare you for everything. The class is split up into cells (4 – 6 people) which work together to complete the scenarios. The scenarios are environment driven so expect earthquake scenarios in Seattle and hurricane scenarios in Florida. Scenarios are based on the environment and will vary by region.
You’ll learn how to prepare and plan for chaos and how to connect the dots of your city, on the move. The goal, of course, is to sharpen your mind into the greatest weapon you have.
As more GORUCK Constellation events occur we’ll continue to update this page with more information.
GORUCK Constellation 12 Training
If the beta events are anything to be believed you will not have to do much physical training to complete GORUCK Constellation. GORUCK themselves say that the event puts an emphasis on your mind and not on your body. Only time will tell but it seems to be shaping up as the mental version of the GORUCK Challenge.
That being said you will still be rucking (with your gear) a decent distance. What we’re saying is you should be in somewhat okay shape. You don’t have to be the gym stud but you should be able to walk a good distance.
GORUCK Constellation 12 Packing List
The gear list for the GORUCK Constellation 12 event is much different than the traditional GORUCK Challenges. Instead of extra weight you are required to bring some very specific pieces of gear to assist you in your scenarios. Check out our GORUCK Constellation 12 Packing List for all of the details.

Additional GORUCK Constellation Events
In addition to the Constellation 12 event there is also the Constellation 24 event.
Constellation 24 is an alumni only event which means only those whom have completed Constellation 12 can attend.
The 2016 Constellation schedule will conclude with an Advanced 24+ Hour scenario in and around the greater Washington, DC area. Alumni only means we can get right to the point, faster.
You can register at anytime, just ensure that you bring the GORUCK Constellation mindset, and the patch you’ve already earned in 2017, to the start point.
