Preparing for a GORUCK Challenge & Light – Session 1 & 2

Friday. April 18th, 7:00pm

I was excited for the opportunity to meet the “new blood” – the folks that are preparing for the GORUCK Challenge & Light. Drip City Coffee Company is definitely our rally-point for all things TRVLSQD in Seattle, and they were once again a fantastic host! The Team was on hand to cover information that could help folks to be better prepared for their first GRC, Light, or even be a refresher. I was very happy to meet the ones that were lucky enough to attend. We had plenty of drinks flowing (thank you Mark:) and even better conversations were had! I know the information that was presented will allow for a better and more prepared participant.

Here’s what we covered:

  • Gear – Ruck, Clothing, Boots, Accessories, Bricks,
  • Nutrition – Drinks, Food, Snacks and BEER:)
  • Cold Water Immersion
  • Footcare


Some even doubled up the learning experience and showed up for the Alki Beach Workout early Saturday morning! As these Sessions continue, they will only get better and more of you will crush that GORUCK Challenge and Light. Thank you to Mark & Jeremy from Drip City Coffee Company for hosting these Sessions, to Brian Lohr from All-Day Ruckoff for the pictures, to the TRVLSQD GRT’s that were on hand to give feedback, and to the attendees – without you none of this would have been possible.

Don’t miss Session 3 – Leadership with Special Guest MSG Ed Hall in Tacoma on April 25th at 7:00pm!
