We are introducing our endurance challenge to dozens of cities all over the nation while building relationships around the military and civilian communities. Our challenges provide a fun and safe atmosphere of competition that promotes fellowship and personal growth.

Founded in 2012, by former Special Forces Operators, the GBC is an array of personal challenges to overcome by exhibiting strength, determination, physical endurance, problem solving and decision making.

Challenge your mind, body and spirit along 8 demanding miles. Each course is uniquely developed and specifically built to incorporate some of the most challenging terrain each location has to offer

The GBC consists of numerous events that will require the participant to push, pull, carry, climb or crawl their way to the finish line. Military style equipment, water, sand bags, telephone poles and various other obstacles combined with a creative race director are some of the highlights this 8 mile gauntlet offers up for its participants. The pain will be legendary, but the sense of accomplishment will last forever.

As an individual and team, the greatest obstacle you will ever face is to accept the challenge! Forge on one step at a time, make it to the finish line and walk away with a symbol of excellence; a badge of courage, a mark of distinction!

Special Ops' 5K Assault (on Childhood Cancer) is (3.1 miles) Terrain Run, which is the perfect introductory challenge for individuals, groups or teams to get the blood flowing and affiliate with our Elite Series. There are no technical requirements to participate in this event; however, you may encounter water obstacles along the way. The course is nestled in the landscape; the course provides spectacular views along the route. It's a great way to start your journey to becoming Special Ops Qualified!

The Green Beret Challenge is a 6 - 8 mile course designed by U.S. Special Forces, which requires a minimum of a 2-person team to work together and negotiate obstacles while carrying, pulling or pushing their way to the finish line. Bring your A-Game because this event is focused on problem solving, decision-making, and communication to complete five (5) Special Force type missions. The pain will be legendary, but the sense of accomplishment will last forever!
