Stop what you’re doing and mark Saturday June 24th, 2017 on your calendar. You’re going to take on The Hurricane.
Now imagine that on the old NAVY base with lots of salt water, the lowcountry humidity, food trucks and a brewery. Yes, I did say a brewery.
It will be tough. It will be wet. It will be Completely Stupid and Utterly Pointless. It will be awesome.
What is The Hurricane?
It’s an 8-10 mile trek through the old Charleston Naval Shipyard. There will be some light running, but mostly hiking with a ton of pain stations and heavy coupons. We will assemble at Coast Brewing Company and move as a team through the shipyard, down roads, across train tracks and fields and through water. Yes, you will get wet. But not just wet… you will get straight up nasty. Sounds amazing, doesn’t it.
We will end it all back at Coast Brewing Company for some of the southeast’s best beer, a couple awesome food trucks and a whole lot of fellowship.
Why do something so completely stupid and utterly pointless? Because it actually isn’t pointless. You’ll prove to yourself that you’re much more of a badass than you think you are. You’ll build unbreakable bonds with your brothers. You’ll become a true member of a team. That’s the point.
Who are the event Qs?
Goose, Hot Spot and Jingles
Is it ruck friendly?
Heck yes. This is great for GoRuck Challenge prep.
What kind of equipment do I need?
None, although you might consider some kind of high socks to protect your shins, and a hydration backpack is always a good idea. Other than that, normal workout gear will suffice. Did we mention you will get wet?
Do I need to know how to swim?
No. But use your best judgment – we’re crossing some creeks and we may end up in the river. PFD’s are appropriate.
How long will this take?
Quite frankly, we have no idea. We’re gonna start at 07:00 am and get back to Coast around 11:00 am. Feel free to have your family join us at the end.
What does this cost?
Nada. Zero. Zilch. Just bring a few bucks to chip in for water along the way and the beer/food if you choose to partake, which we strongly encourage.
Who is invited?
Any male who is 18+. This is a good opportunity to HC some new FNGs. We’re also hoping that some of our brothers from other regions join us.
Do we need volunteers?
Yes. We need help with logistics, communications, hydration, photos and probably a whole lot of things we haven’t thought of yet. Maybe your M or 2.0 will want to help here. Use the form below and tell us that you want to volunteer in the message box.
What route will we follow?
We can’t tell you that quite yet. It would ruin all the fun.
Where do I sign up?
Right here. Just fill out this form now. We need an approximate headcount so please don’t dilly-dally. Go ahead and hard commit!
