A look into what a Green Beret Challenge endurance event entails, and how it differs from some of the endurance events of other major races.
It is something I feel other events struggle with; making something unnecessarily difficult to artificially create a low completion rate. I personally love doing those geared events but that is not what your average OCR or outdoor enthusiast is looking for as their next challenge. Green Beret Challenge succeeds where the others miss, even if you do not make it through Phase IV you know you are better than before you started because you found a true limit to build on, grow and return stronger.
