About the event

Welcome to the SUCK. This will be a very challenging and somewhat grueling 36, 12, or 4-hour event. Our goal is to combine strenuous Mid-Western farm chores with military boot camp, trail running, strongman training, and whatever else somewhat punishing we can come up with. Think of it as Conan the Barbarian meets Full Metal Jacket with a dash of Deliverance mixed in for fun. ***Open to ages 18 - 80.

The Ultimate Suck (36-Hour): 

You may want to get familiar with shooting a shotgun, bailing or carrying hay, chopping wood, and carrying all kinds of heavy stuff. Plus, you may want to experience the effects of pepper spray! HAHA...again these are all just POSSIBILITIES and the actual tasks will not be revealed until you encounter them at the event. Base camp will be your tent in a hay field. No RVs or buses, please! You are NOT allowed to sleep once the event begins.

Rules (Crews & Pacers):

To avoid any perceived or actual advantage of having a crew on the course with you, there will be no crews/pacers, etc. allowed on the course with the racers until hour 24 of the event or 7 PM on Saturday. You are on your own until then. At 7 PM Saturday you are allowed ONE pacer on the course with you at any given time for the last 12 hours. They CANNOT assist you beyond your designated campsite in any way, meaning no bringing your food/water, no holding or carrying anything for you, etc. If you are caught violating this rule it will most likely be immediate disqualification. They are allowed to take care of you at your campsite ONLY. They can not assist you on the course or in the check-in area. This helps avoid crowding around check-in & the campfire. Please understand we're doing this to have a level playing field.
