GORUCK Beached 2012
You’ve all survived a Challenge on land, perhaps even the Ascent in the mountains, and now the ocean is calling, as it is wont to do. At Beached, you’ll spend four ‘Special Forces meets Robinson Crusoe-style’ days in and around Key West, Florida completing team based missions on foot and in the water. Zodiacs meet snorkels meet miles and miles of sandy terrain. Shelters will be minimal, movement will be constant, and bonfires with beers in hand are always a priority, something earned together.
Beached is also an opportunity to gain insight into how America trains its most elite soldiers. Throughout Beached, Green Berets will teach multiple classes, including:
- Mission planning and preparation
- Land navigation/GPS/map reading
- Survival (hunting/gathering)
- Wilderness Medicine
