Operation TWO ZERO offers just under half the distance of Operation FIVE ZERO but still climbs over 5,000 ft in elevation, presenting a significant challenge in the scenic mountains near Provo, Utah. The route showcases the rugged beauty of the region, with sweeping views and diverse terrain that test both physical endurance and mental resilience. Candidates aiming for the GBF dog tags have 7 hours to complete the course, while those just hoping to pass, have up to 9 hours to finish.


Candidates must carry 20 lbs (dry weight) and complete the 20 +/- mile route in under 9 hours to pass and under 7 hours to earn the GBF Operation TWO ZERO Dog Tag.


Candidates will meet at the Vivian Park Trailhead. At 0700 hours, GBF Staff will give an event brief before answering any questions and releasing the candidates to begin the route at 0730 hours.
