That’s Jen T. aka “Red”, third from the left (or right, as it were) in the East River during the GO RUCK Challenge last weekend.
“The GORUCK Challenge is a team event, never a race. Think of it as a slice of Special Operations training where – from start to finish — a Special Operations Cadre challenges, teaches, and inspires your small team to do more than you ever thought possible. Leadership is taught and teamwork is demanded on missions spanning the best of your city. The hardest part? Signing up.”—from the Go Ruck website
“Inspired by the most elite training offered to Special Forces soldiers and led by Green Berets, the GORUCK Challenge is a team event and never a race. Challenge cadre build each class into a team through collective conditions of mental and physical exhaustion. Classes are small, camaraderie is high, smiles are plentiful, and teamwork is paramount.
The Challenge is billed as 8-10 hour / 15-20 mile guided tour of each city they visit, yet it’s also mentioned that the route and distance are unknown to participants and Challenges can last longer and go on for greater distances if the team needs it in order to fully become a team. They certainly like to under promise and over deliver!”—-from the ITS Tactical Website
