Description

The SUCK: any situation where conditions are undesirable, a testament to the dedication of those who endure it.

Created by Guinness World Record Holder and 2 x Death Race Winner, Joe Decker. Each overnight SUCK consists of many hours of intense individual fitness challenges consisting of miles of trail running, carrying heavy objects, military calisthenics plus strongman training and more. Even though the SUCK is extremely challenging the end goal is about EMPOWERMENT. We are not there to crush you but to motivate you. We all have weaknesses and you'll find them out there in the woods around 2 AM in the morning. Recognize them then adapt and overcome. The male and female winner of each Regional SUCK gets free entry into the Ultimate SUCK. Come join us at one of the voted "Most Extreme Fitness Tests in America“.

All finishers that complete the ENTIRE event will receive a one of a kind Challenge Coin. This CAN NOT be purchased and MUST be earned. In addition you are added to the list of those that have officially "Embraced the SUCK."

We are also offering a Gut Check Challenge at the same location as the SUCK event and will start at the same time 7PM Friday. It's a great intro to the 12 hour SUCK! 

It will consist of bucket & sandbag carries, fell running, military calisthenics, strongman events and much more! Think of it as Conan the Barbarian meets Running Man with a dash of Full Metal Jacket thrown in.
