Army vs. Navy

The Do You Give A Ruck: Army vs. Navy Battle for Dominance will be Saturday, April 17, 2021, from 8:00 am – 2:00 pm at 11090 CR 512, in Fellsmere (Florida Tech Challenge Course).

It will be their first OCR Ruck 5k – 18 obstacles with 1 Mission. So, bring your two or four-person team, or there will be an individual participant list available for pairing. 

Choose your team, Army or Navy. Then, bring your rucksack or backpack with donations: non-perishables, personal hygiene, and baby products. No glass, please!

How to Register

Register early on Eventbrite for only $20.00. On the day of the event, it will increase to $30. There will be event shirts for participants while supplies last. $5.00 of the $20.00 registration fee will help Veterans right here in Indian River County. 

There will be two different waves of competitors. The first wave will be for the glory – Army VS Navy! It will determine who is the better branch and will require participants to conquer and complete all obstacles.

The second wave will be for those who want to experience an actual military obstacle course with their family or friends but can skip over obstacles they are not comfortable doing.

Participants can expect an authentic military experience as volunteers push and encourage them to keep going.

The Treasure Coast Jeep Club will be lined up along the road leading to and from the obstacle course. The Jeep Club will be cheering teams on and boosting their morale at the start and finish.

In addition to the Battle for Dominance

They will have raffles, some of the best beer on the treasure coast from Hop Life Brewing Company, delicious BBQ from The Saussie Pig, photos taken by Norair Photography, and video coverage from Drones By Sean.
