Join us for the National Kickoff on Sunday, January 30 at the National Veterans Memorial and Museum in Columbus, Ohio!
Starting at 10 a.m., Patriot Challenge registrants can participate for free in the National Kickoff Workout for free at the National Veterans Memorial and Museum. Select "Yes" for the National Kickoff during registration to secure your spot!
Official National Kickoff Workout consists of three rounds of the following:
50 calories on Echo bike
15 kettlebell swings with a kettlebell of choice
500+50+15 = *565
Significance of 565. In 2012, Army Ranger Cory Smith set off on a 565-mile trek from Fort Benning, Ga. to Indianapolis, Ind. to raise awareness of the challenges facing transitioning service members. Along the way, supporters would encourage Cory with shouts of "Run Ranger Run". Ten years later, more than 10,000 Patriots have logged 565 miles (or units of activity) as part of GallantFew's Run Ranger Run - now Patriot Challenge.
Equipment for the National Kickoff Workout provided by Rogue!
The World Record.
Also beginning at 10 a.m., Army Ranger veteran and current Guinness Book of World Records 24-hour Pull Up holder Brandon Tucker will begin his assault on the 24-hour Muscle Up World Record of 1,256 achieved by Alejandro Soler Tarí of Spain. Tarí set the current record in Alicante, Spain from October, 29-30, 2021.
