Race Recap: Green Beret Challenge – Commando Course

By |September 1st, 2016|

Coming into the Green Beret Challenge (GBC) the only thing I knew about it was that there were a lot of heavy carries. I read up on it a bit, and it sounded like a fun event where the owner, Mark Ballas, and his band of merry men would try to give you a taste of team building; Special Forces style. This particular race took part deep in the backwoods of south central Missouri just on the outskirts of Ozark mountain country. As with a lot of the OCR event’s these days the venue itself was one of the biggest obstacles for the organizers who ended up spending much more time than planned prepping the trails.

Race Recap – Green Beret Challenge – Georgia 2015

By |July 28th, 2015|

The Green Beret Challenge is not a traditional Obstacle Course Race and surely not a Mud Run. If you’re looking for a bubble foam-fest color run, keep on looking. This is a true endurance test of your fitness, mental toughness, and ability to adapt in order to conquer the challenges as they are laid out before you.

Race Recap: Special Ops Series: Georgia Green Beret Challenge

By |September 4th, 2014|

“Are you ready for the suck?” was a question posed almost half a dozen times to me within the first 30 minutes of arriving to the venue at Fort Yargo State Park in North Georgia. As a solid obstacle racer I was thinking “yeah, yeah, I've heard this phrase all too often lately” but I must admit I was in for a rude awakening! The Special Ops Series Green Beret Challenge was an endurance event to test both the physical and mental strength of even the strongest competitors.
