BENEFITING: Charlotte Bridge Home Inc
What Is PATHFINDER? The SPEARHEAD PATHFINDER program is a 12 week plan developed to help individuals meet their training goals and prepare for events. This program is an individual commitment, taken on at your own risk (don’t sue us). Completing PATHFINDER will require dedication and self-discipline. The bulk of this program focuses on rucking; specifically distance and speed. Ruck More is what you always hear from the cadre, and PATHFINDER embraces that philosophy. Not only will PATHFINDER help prepare you physically, but it will help to teach you important skills such as navigation, pace and distance estimation, leadership, and teamwork.
Leadership, fellowship, and teamwork are major components of PATHFINDER. We encourage you to complete every single ruck mile with your teammates; however, the program is designed to be able to be completed individually if you prefer.
Be sure to keep good records of everything you do as you train – it will make you proud and motivate you as you watch those miles rack up. Pick a date to start your training. If you are planning to use PATHFINDER to train for an event, start training at least 13 weeks ahead of time. All training is designed to be done with a ruck loaded with challenge weight, but work your way up to full weight if you are just starting out.
PATHFINDER 006 will benefit the Charlotte Bridge Home, our favorite local organization that works with veterans in the Charlotte area.
What is the Charlotte Bridge Home? The CBH is an organization that aims to do primarily one thing, and that is to connect veterans. Connect them to to employers, to government resources, to each other, and to the community. The CBH provides a starting point for veterans that are new to Charlotte, and helps them transition into civilian life in a city that has a low military population.
