Description

In an effort to motivate, inspire and hopefully empower, Joe Decker decided to come up with a fun & engaging 3 months worth of challenges with each completion building upon the next. He based it upon his training for the 24 Hour Guinness World Record as well as the SUCK with a few modifications to make it more comprehensive and ‘fun.’ If you’re looking for a way to kick your fitness goals for 2023 in the a**, this will do just that. 
 
The Gut Check Challenges
Jan 2-Jan 31 - The Olive Drab Challenge (Boot Camp): 30 days with 3 miles per day + 30 reps of 3 exercises TBD.
 
Feb 8-Feb 14 - The Red Challenge: 1 week of 5 days with 5 miles per day + 50 reps of 5 exercises TBD (5 days on 2 days off for 1 week)

Feb 15-Feb 21 - The White Challenge: 1 week of 4 days with 7 miles per day + 70 reps of 7 exercises TBD (4 days on 3 days off for 1 week)

Feb 22-Feb 28 - The Blue Challenge: 1 week of 3 days with 10 miles per day + 100 reps of 10 exercises TBD (3 days on 4 days off for 1 week)

Mar 10-Mar 12 - The GUT CHECK Black Challenge: 2 days (48 hours) – 26.2 miles of running + 3,000 ab crunches, 1,100 push-ups, 1,100 jumping jacks, 1 mile burpee leap frog. (Does not have to be done all at once or in order. You can break the run & the exercises up anyway you want but only have 48 hours to complete everything.)

Mar 10-Mar 12 - The SUCK Black Challenge : 2 days (48 hours) - 26.2 miles of humping a pack with 35lb sandbag + Gut Check Double Murph 200 pack presses, 400 pack push-ups and 600 pack squats and 1 mile bucket carry with 2x 35lb sandbags. (Does not have to be done all at once or in order. You can break the run & the exercises up anyway you want but only have 48 hours to complete everything.)

Mar 10-Mar 12 - The DEVIL’S DOUBLE: A combination of BOTH The GUT CHECK Black Challenge – 26.2 miles of running + 3,000 ab crunches, 1,100 push-ups, 1,100 jumping jacks, 1 mile burpee leap frog PLUS The SUCK Black Challenge – 26.2 miles of humping a pack with sandbag + Gut Check Double Murph 200 pack presses, 400 pack push-ups and 600 pack squats and 1 mile bucket carry. Both MUST be completed in 2 days (48 hours). I suggest starting Friday 7PM SUCK Black, rest, then Sunday 7AM GUT CHECK Black. You can break the run/hump & exercises up for either the GUT CHECK or SUCK Black Challenge but must have a GPS/Strava map of BOTH 26.2 mile route as proof.         

Please note we have indoor and outdoor options for those of you that can't get outside every day. Each daily run must be documented with GPS, Strava or similar then posted to the Gut Check Challenges page or here on the runsignup.com page for verification. You will not receive your custom silicone bracelet if your run is not documented. Since we’re doing it virtually, we trust you to be honorable when completing your exercises and the prescribed number of reps. The event is based upon the US Military ‘Honor System,” please do not cheat as you’re truly only cheating yourself.

For each challenge that you complete in it’s entirety, we will send you the corresponding Olive Drab, Red, White, Blue, Black or Devil’s Double custom silicone bracelet that you registered for. If you register for multiple or all, we will send the custom bracelets at the completion of your last event, not individually.
