Challenge Awards IconChallenge Awards 3rd Place 2019

The Commando 4-person Team Series requires the participants to attack 8+ grueling miles as they push, pull, carry, climb or crawl their way to the finish line. The Commando is arguably the most demanding 1-day team challenge event in the industry.

We promise the pain will be legendary, but the sense of accomplishment will last forever. Unlike traditional team challenge OCR’s, the GBC incorporates unique “events” that require teamwork, communication, a little grey matter and a lot of heart. We will not test your ability to crawl through mud, but we will test your resolve to complete the team challenge.
