MARSOC Debuts ‘Strength Challenge’ Recruiting Event
A new recruiting event sponsored by Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command allows active-duty Marines to find out if they have the physical qualifications to become an operator. The MARSOC Strength Challenge, which will take place April 26 at the command’s headquarters at Stone Bay, part of Camp Lejeune, N.C., will run Marines through a 10-minute test of physical stamina that includes pull-ups and strength exercises using weighted prowler sleds, according to promotional materials.
The event will be similar to the mobile pull-up bar challenge that Marine recruiters bring to public events to promote enlistment, but will be limited to male and female active-duty Marines, Morris said.
