Commando - Endurance Series
(the former Green Beret Challenge)
The Commando is our 4-person Team Endurance Challenge that requires the participants to attack 8+ grueling miles as they push, pull, carry, climb or crawl their way to the finish line. The Commando is arguably the most demanding 1-day event in the industry. We promise the pain will be legendary, but the sense of accomplishment will last forever. Unlike traditional OCR’s, the GBC incorporates unique “events” that require teamwork, communication, a little grey matter and a lot of heart. We will not test your ability to crawl through mud, but we will test your resolve to complete the challenge.
4-Person Teams (no exceptions)
The competitive categories MUST be configured in the following fashion to be eligible for awards.
Awards will be in the following categories:
Top All Male Team
Top Co-ed (2M/2F) Team
Top All Female Team
Note: Non competitive teams can have any gender combination.
“You can tell this is Mark’s passion, and it shows so vibrantly as he talks about the race, as you see him on the course on his ATV. I can absolutely see why Red Bull gave them the # 1 spot in their ratings, it was well deserved”. (Charles Miller – Mud Run Guide)
This was truely a challenge, not an obstacle race! It was exactly as they described: it tested my mental and physical grit, the PAIN is legendary, with a great sense of accomplishment!!!! I have a new respect for sled dogs pulling loads of 200+ lbs, and any military guys training with weighted down ruck sacks. This was my longest race of the year and by far the most endurance driven challenge!!! Glad to be a part of the finishers circle! Great group of guys, staff, volunteers, and well organized!!!
I did a Spartan Race, Warrior Dash, and Tough Mudder this spring, but they all paled in comparison to the Commando (Green Beret Challenge). This one was tough! The other races seem silly in comparison; they make you jump in ice or get a little electric shock. The Commando was a real test of endurance and toughness. Lots of heavy sandbags, slogging through water, and rough terrain. Definitely doing it again next year!
