“What an incredible experience to do my 1st GORUCK with my 2 sons and complete the 50 mile Star Course Challenge! The hardest thing I have ever completed yet most inspiring and rewarding to complete and cross finish line with my boys. Definitley want to do another GORUCK challenge!”


“I went to the 50 miler as part of a team of strays. We were all solos who couldn’t find partners and had to team up. As always, I’m struck by the caliber of people who show up to do these events. Even though a few of them had to drop, they were great guys. The ones who stuck it out were monsters. Thanks again, and hopefully I’ll be back next year challenging to win the event. Mocha Mike, BD, and Mickey were cool cats and great to be around.”


“This was an exceptionally well-designed event taking into account both Chicago’s waterfront assets and key scenery. Event leaders “cadre” provided outstanding support in strategic locations, and were a ton of fun. The event was an incredible mental and physical challenge, but it feels amazing to have finished!”
