PATHFINDER Compete - Team Assessment and Competitive Ruck Training

Regular price $54.99 Sale


PATHFINDER Compete is devoted to training rosters for the GORUCK Team Assessment. This Event will challenge a roster’s stamina, endurance, and fortitude, and our training plan will give you the best possible edge. Train hard, knowing thousands of athletes have gone through our PATHFINDER programs and we’ve helped them achieve their biggest goals.

PATHFINDER Compete will train you to peak preparedness. You’ll continue upping your game on workout frequency and adding Challenges to your training that test your limits to prepare you for this grueling competition.

PATHFINDER isn't a day-by-day workout plan ... because they don't work! PATHFINDER works because YOU build it. We give you the requirements - miles, workouts, and Challenges - and you fit them into your calendar based on what works for YOU.
