PRIMUS GORUCK Star Course Challenge
Want to enjoy the weather and get in some fitness while we’re quarantined AF? Try the GORUCK Star Course Challenge.
What it is: A 12 mile (RX) or 6 mile (Scaled) hike around Orlando with different waypoints. Map out your own route between waypoints. Stop at each waypoint, take selfies, tag @primuscrossfit in your socials. PROFIT. If you do the GORUCK version, which means rucking with weight, you can get a cool, free patch:
When: Any time between now and when the quarantine ends!
Why: The weather is great and we literally can’t do anything else but go on walks.
Social Distancing: Follow all state, county, and city rules and CDC guidelines for COVID-19. Maintain safe social distancing. Even if your city is sheltered in place, you are usually still permitted to go outside for exercise. Be sure to stay six feet away from others and refrain from touching your face and anything in public spaces.
Can you do other routes? Yes! Pick out your own waypoints and get in either 12 miles (RX) or 6 miles (scaled). Take selfies at each waypoint.
GORUCK Version: Want to do the GORUCK version? Grab a backpack and drop weight in it. Use 10lbs if you weigh 150 or below. Use 20 lbs if you weigh 151 or above. Be sure to tag @GORUCK in your socials for bragging rights. Order the cool patch, which is free!
