Team Cohesion Challenge, Aug. 29

The Team Cohesion Challenge (TCC) was hosted by the Peterson AFB Fitness & Sports Center at 8 a.m. Saturday, August 29.

An introduction to the team-based training found in elite military detachments, TCC proved to be very physically demanding through the use of obstacles to navigate, calisthenics and other exercises and activities.

The Special Operations Cadre (trainer) challenged and inspired those brave enough to push their limits while having the time of their life.

Here’s what some of the participants had to say:

I thought the TCC was awesome. It was awesome to see all of us learn to quickly come together as a team even though some of the Airman in the event have never encountered anything like it before. I think it is an really cool opportunity for anybody in the military to take advantage of and would highly suggest everyone I work with to give it a try. It was a challenge, but at the end of the day it’s all about having fun and gaining the “team” mentality.” – Bryan

I am really glad that the Air Force chose GORUCK to run the TCC. Those guys know how to push you, but they also know how to have a good time. So naturally, the TCC was an appropriate mix of challenge and fun. I would do this event again next year, hands down. I hope that next year, people don’t get intimidated by the “5 hours, 10 miles” thing… Anyone who can pass the AF Fitness Assessment can do this if they set their mind to it.” – David

“The TCC was a great event to be a part of and it’s a great thing that the AF and GORUCK have partnered together to make these events happen for military personnel. At the core of GORUCK events are the concepts of teamwork and selflessness. Because there is a team weight involved, everyone must contribute or bear the burden as others rest and recuperate for their next turn to carry that burden. As you saw, we picked up additional team items (logs) that we all had to carry. This required excellent communication as we had to maneuver the logs as a team.

Additionally, the event challenges you both mentally and physically while you work as a team to overcome various obstacles. Some people come prepared to meet these obstacles while others are not as prepared. This forces the team concept as everyone must work together in order to complete the event. Everyone who participates motivates each other and shares in the fun which builds lasting bonds.

I had the privilege to meet some great people because of this event. Furthermore we learned from each other and our experiences, which reinforced the team bond.” – Roberto
