It is an honor and a privilege to introduce our newest elites and multiple finishers of the T3 Night Ops! It was by far the most effective and competent class ever. They went above and beyond and did everything they could to keep each other glued together as a single unit.
Ah yes, the T3. Also known as Regiment Christmas! The team of 26 have spent months accumulating points via pre-game challenges, unlocking perks along the way to make their night of hell slightly less miserable. Here is where they stand regarding the perks:
Their total point count is currently at 40, which is divided evenly among the team, with the extra remainder points going towards those who registered earliest. T3 live updates will be rolling through the entire night of the 20th until the morning of the 21st over at our T3 Live Updates page. See you then!
The updates have started to trickle through! This first scrap of info comes from the Spartan Instagram.
One of the big shockers of last year's Killington UB was the absence of the iconic Tarzan bridge swing over the freezing lake. Spartan's unofficial response cited the prohibitive cost of having multiple lifeguards manning the obstacle for the weekend as to why they didn't have it in 2015. That has since appeared to have changed.
Hope your grip strength is up to par, because this obstacle will be the burpee-maker for about 90% of those attempting it.
Things are starting to solidify for this event! The team is currently at 34 points after unlocking easy cards, and challenge #8 is well underway! The class size is now at a record 25 participants and it's looking like we're going to have two instructors for this event to make sure things go smoothly. To make things fun, we're going to be having door prizes at the end of the T3 that each person will roll the 120 sided dice to win. Here are the current prizes that we're giving away:
- TWO free entries to any GORUCK light or tough of your choice (Ingress event works too)
- Free entry to Mud Titan, which is happening on the 27th of August
- BattleFrog arm sleeve
- USMC Camelback
- BattleFrog head scarf
GORUCK has done it again.
They have released into the wild faction-themed rucksacks as well as faction themed ruck plates! What a time to be alive :) If you want to take a look at all their ingress themed ruck stuff, head over to their page here.
The next T3 is already up to 15 people registered! It seems that the favorite venue resides in St. Augustine, still. Nevertheless, if you'd like to participate in the action you can find more information on our events page. If you'd like to spectate the event from the comfort of your home, feel free to stay up to date with our T3 Live Updates page!
You know that contest we've got where you show off your red R patch in cool places?
Yeah... well Regiment Elite and Navy pilot Jorge just won that contest.
This amazing team is at a loss for words. The accomplishments of this athlete never cease to amaze us, and the realization that he's on our team is always a humbling and honorable feeling to have. Congratulations, Matt. You have once again made us pick our jaws back off the ground from your insane accomplishments.
Registration is now live for the next Tough Training Trials! This one will be at the beautiful St. Augustine beach in Anastasia State Park in Florida. This will be the first night ops event as well, meaning it'll be starting at 6:30pm on a Saturday, running into the morning on Sunday! We've had four T3s at this venue before and it's starting to become a second home for us. From beaches to inlets and even the dense woods, this T3 venue feels like it came straight out of a hunger games battleground design!
You can follow the updates to this event on our live updates page. If you're daring enough, you can register for the event yourself and see if you have what it takes to claim your red R patch!
Few people hold the coveted rank of elite in Team Regiment. Do you have what it takes to earn your red R and join the ranks of these elite members? Whether you think you can or cannot, you're right.
The T3 is a 12-15 hour, 15+ mile team-building ruck, run, and obstacle event that is divided into five themed laps that train, test and challenge every aspect of your mind and body. This event is designed to prepare you for big events like GORUCK Heavy, Spartan UltraBeast, World's Toughest Mudder and other similar high-caliber events out there. Think of it as a sampler dish with various elements of big events put into one big training event. Sound like your cup of tea? The trials you will endure are as follows:
Lap 1 - Water challenges
Lap 2 - Feats of strength
Lap 3 - Feats of endurance
Lap 4 - Feats of camaraderie
Lap 5 - Feats of intellect
Aspiring elites are expected to bring a backpack/ruck consisting of at least 20% body weight (we'll have a scale), a headlamp and some clothes to get wet and sandy in. You will be provided with food and drinks after every lap is completed, but you're welcome to bring your own creature comforts with you if you so desire.
Those who make it to the end (people have and will quit) will receive the coveted red R patch and the rare honor that only the elite get to share in Team Regiment. Nobody has said this was easy, but everybody has said it was worth it.
Here is the rest of what you need to know:
Where: Anastasia State Park. St Augustine, FL.
Who: No more than 20 per class
When: 6:30pm until 8:30am or later the next day.
Cost: $49 (Regiment Elite and T2 finishers get $5 off)
