“Nasty disturbing uncomfortable things! Make you late for dinner!”
– Bilbo Baggins, The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
GORUCK Tough Class 677 back in the day when there was only the Challenge, and it was long, hard, and filled with “Good Livin'”. To be fair, the addition of the Light and Heavy, followed by renaming the “Challenge” to “Tough” and calling all the Light, Tough and Heavy events “Challenges” was a good move on GORUCK’s part. Now there are opportunities for folks who want anything on the spectrum from fun to serious self induced suffering.
