Backblast #183 - Mini-Star Course

June 2, 2019

YHC has been reading about the GORUCK Star Course a lot lately, so why not run our own mini-star course as part of our Sunday rucks?

Preblast via Slack 6/1/19

It’s the 1st Sunday (tomorrow) in June and we’re RUCKING. I’m thinking between 6-8 miles depending on how my M feels - that’s right boys...the ruck is co-ed.

Let’s start the ruck at 5:30 PM (earlier time) from Brewery Vivant.

Taking HC’s in the thread below.

AO – Brewery Vivant

Environment - 68 Degrees | 27% Humidity | Beautiful Day

[17:30 - Core Principles recited.  Disclaimer given to 6 PAX + 1 M] – Basic Bro, Bald Eagle, Snoop, Soft Spot, Hasselhoff, MAD COW’s M & MAD COW (QIC) 

The Thang

YHC explained what a GORUCK Star Course entailed. Then, everyone received a handout with the following:

The route you and your team choose will be your own, so choose wisely. At each location, your team must take a selfie in front of the iconic location.

  • Aquinas College Bookstore

  • Blodgett Hospital

  • Fulton Street Farmers Market

  • Harmony Brewing Company

  • Houseman Field

  • Martha's Vineyard Fine Wine & Gourmet Grocery

  • The Winchester

  • The Electric Cheetah

  • WOOD TV8

In total, the PAX rucked 6.64 miles over the duration of all the stops. Fun was had by all.
