Do you have what it takes?

Green Beret Challenge and Mark Ballas strike again. Love this race series. It’s always a different course, new obstacles (read: new levels of torture), and is always a well put together event. If you haven’t tried one yet, you need to! You’ll surprise yourself with what you’re capable of. ”  – JM


The Sand Man

The Sandman will test your entire overall fitness with focus on leg endurance. It is featured in both the Operator Individual OCR as well as the Commando Team Challenge. The design is comprised of military MEDEVAC sled for the Commando Challenge and individual man made sleds for the Operator Course. The weight varies depending on the event, however will be scaled accordingly for individual to team.

The Wilson Project

The Wilson Project is an overall ass kicker with a major focus on crushing your core. Simple in design, but complex in its utility. This event is scaled for both men and women for the individual Operator Course.

The Ranger Rig

Ranger Rig is comprised of various rope designs and will force you to dig deep into grip strength and technique. Stay high on the ropes and you will cruise right through.

The Angry Elf

Angry Elf is named after Cadre John. The design will vary from caving ladders to a rope climb which transitions to a verted wall. Expect to see the Angry Elf on each Operator Course. John say’s, “climb faster”…

The Cleaner

The Cleaner is our newest addition to the Operator Course. After some trial and error, the final design will feature a high rope climb to a slanted cargo net descent. A variance in the obstacle will feature caving ladders in place of the rope climb. Regardless of the method of accent, the Cleaner will impede your pace!

Basket Case

Basket Case replicates a farmers carry with a focus on grip strength. Some choose to carry high, low and like a bag of groceries, however the agony will not vary! Scaled for men & women for the Operator Course.
