Goruck's Selection is not only one of the toughest endurance events on the planet, it's also an attempt by its creators to bridge the military-civilian divide. Hosted by a group of Special Forces combat veterans, this 48-hour challenge is a condensed interpretation of the US Army's 24-day Assessment and Selection. For the participants, the event is a chance to test their limits while paying tribute to those who serve. For the Cadre, it's an opportunity to honor their community and connect with civilians. Less than 2% of participants finished the first 18 iterations of the event. Will anyone in Class 019 meet "The Standard?" Written by Chase Holden from producers

You have no idea

Sorry , dion_pangallo but this last reviewer has no idea what hes talking about,

"any civilian with even the most basic background in fitness could do" Ok, sign up, lets see you try,

"you signed up for a job knowing full well what was expected of you." No ones complaining but you!

Paid Handsomly?, Starting pay for any branch of the militarty is below minimum wage

"received all sorts of benefits, grants, loans etc" Like WHAT? You are ill informd

"additional retirement salary FOR LIFE!" If you serve 30 years, you do get a retirement pay, Ill give you that. But its no different than many large companies that still pay into pension plans to retain key employees. , Fire departments, Police departments, Teachers or any other government employee.
