What started as the concept for a backpack company evolved into a full-on rucking movement — and former Green Beret Jason McCarthy, founder of GORUCK, couldn’t be happier with the results.
“GORUCK represents a way of life,” McCarthy told Coffee or Die Magazine. “We show people what it’s like to push themselves, to be pushed, to seek something out that most people won’t. And these are the people who are leading from the front in our society. You think about what America is founded on — Washington crossing the Delaware on Christmas Day, the settlers who forged out West, Normandy, Iwo Jima. That’s the kind of sacrifice and the kind of DNA that exists within our country.”
With a focus on fitness and pushing physical limits, GORUCK hosts events and community gatherings across the country, including the GORUCK Sandlot JAX Fitness Festival in Jacksonville, Florida, which will be held April 21-23 this year.

“There are a lot of people out there in whom the American spirit is alive and well,” McCarthy told Coffee or Die. “This is what we’re supposed to do. We’re supposed to take on these enormous challenges and give them everything we have, and GORUCK represents that way of life. […] You want to lead a special life, a life of meaning, a life where you’re pushed? People want to serve more. They want to give more. They want to find more. It’s really hard to find those places sometimes, but this is that place.”
