    Anybody participated in one of these? My son is taking part in the DC night event in December. I can't decide if it sounds like fun or nuts to do this voluntarily? Good infantry training though:thumb:

    I would have been already signed up for the DC one if I were old enough :thumbdown: I truly don’t like age limits, I want to do so much but I cant until I am 18 because of insurance and stuff like that. Although I don’t smoke, drink or anything like that so I could care less about those things. I just want to skydive, and do programs like that.

    Wish your son good luck!

    ....
    I guess it'll be fun? Truthfully though- that guidance is exactly what will get you thru the worst challenges in any military school you wind up going to- Basic Tng; VMI; Ranger; SF selections etc.... ITS ALL MENTAL!!

    Its also great because it's from a Christian perspective.

    We had six or seven cadets from USCGA participate in one a couple of weeks ago...they said it was absolutely amazing! 18 miles of crazy obstacles involving monster trucks, live wires, and fire!


    I think it sounds awesome, a bunch of the 4/c here already want to participate next year! :thumb:

    Look for a VMI 2013 team in the Event in PA in April. (I believe that's when it is)

    Death Race

    http://peakraces.com/deathrace/

    Its 10 miles long and has a 24 hour time limit, I think only 2 or 3 people finished last year. I didn't do it but i know a couple of Senior Cadets from last year did this after graduation.
