Organizer:Green Beret Challenge 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!

What You Get:
- Patch ceremony for finishers
Ever wonder what it would be like to be a Green Beret for a day? ""Behind Enemy Lines"" will expose you to the experience of attending Special Forces Assessment & Selection, SF Training and their unique Unconventional Warfare scenario packed into a 24-hour amazing experience. Common people achieving uncommon results! Behind Enemy Lines provides a fun and engaging atmosphere that promotes camaraderie and personal growth!
Phase I consists of mental and physical tests unlike you have ever experienced before. Pass the selection phase and you advance to phase II, REAL Green Beret Training by REAL Green Berets. Upon the conclusion of phase II, you will advance to phase III and become a member of a team. You and your detachment will be given a REAL Special Forces mission that you and your fellow warriors MUST accomplish. Are you ready to experience the life in a day of a Green Beret?
Phase 2: Awesome, you have passed A&S, earned your dog tags, so what’s next? This interactive and engaging segment of the program will cover some basic tasks Special Forces students learn over the course of 12 months of training. Each attendee can expect to receive training on several of the following skill sets: Small Unit Tactics (stuff Rangers and Green Berets use on every mission), Survival Tradecraft, Target Exploitation, Close Quarters Combat, Escape & Evasion techniques, Booby Traps, Land Navigation, Rope Bridges & Rappelling are just a few of the skills you will be exposed to. Don’t quit and you will move onto phase III.
Phase 3 - Hell yeah! Now you have received some training, its time to put those new skills to work! Imagine the opportunity to deploy to another country as a representative of diplomacy to assist a foreign government in restoring peace and democracy, or to just go destroy some stuff. Teams will be accompanied by real Special Forces veterans (GBC Cadre) as “advisors” as you embark on a journey only seen in the movies. The teams will be configured into a Special Forces Guerilla Force or commonly referred to as our “G” force. You will be given an opportunity to plan, rehearse and execute a real special operations style mission. As the journey unfolds, the teams will have to adapt to an ever changing scenario that will require sound judgment, a bit of uncertainty and definitely a lot of excitement.
GBC does NOT charge for spectators. All spectators are welcome to follow their favorite team along the course, take pictures and encourage them during their more challenging times throughout the event.
