This Team Navigation and Rucking Event will be completed in Tampa on Sunday 22nd November at 0830AM. The start location is TBC due to the ongoing COVID 19 situation. The start / finish location will be confirmed in the weeks prior to the event.

Your Team Leader will be issued a list of checkpoints in the morning and your team must plan the most efficient route before setting off to complete the course. Checkpoints (CP) may include shops, bars, famous landmarks, parks, and historic locations.

This event is about planning an efficient route, working together, and individual administration and fitness. 'Look after your body and it will look after you.'

There may be food, workouts, water, buddy-carries and more involved in this event. Expect the Unexpected.




1. Teams must be a minimum of 2 and maximum of 8.

2. Each team member must start with 20 lbs in their ruck (see above for further rules) but this can be distributed through the team with stronger members taking more weight. The total team weight must be 20 lbs x the number of team members.

3. At each CP the Team Leader must post a selfie of the whole team to their Instagram page (not story) tagging

@GreenBeretFitness and the #ToughStrongFit. This will be the method for Staff to track the teams progress. The CP information given on the morning of the event will have further details.

4. Traffic Laws and Local Laws must be obeyed. Roads will not be closed to traffic.
