Summit Series Challenge

Next Challenge: October 7, 2017

Start Time: 0800

Welcome to EOG’s Summit Series Challenge Events!!!

 

Put yourself on a course to maximize the benefit of whatever workout or physical fitness routine you are involved in – EVEN if it is minimal.

 

Never stop learning and putting your knowledge and skills to the test….skills and knowledge that may mean the difference between life and death.

 

At EOG, we believe that PHYSICAL FITNESS has a much deeper meaning than just losing weight, shaping your body, or even reaching peak performance levels – although these are GREAT side-effects.

Summit Series Mission

Never stop learning.  Never stop challenging yourself.  Never stop growing.

 

Our mission at EOG is to enhance the ability of our program participants to live a more full, robust, deliberate, and joyful life – in EVERY aspect of life – by teaching and training on the skills and knowledge base that are essential for an individual to possess to be able to fulfill the most PRIMAL of RESPONSIBILITIES – TO BE ABLE TO PROTECT THEMSELVES AND THEIR LOVED ONES IN THE EVENT OF AN EMERGENCY, VIOLENT ENCOUNTER, or ANY OTHER IMAGINABLE UNDESIRABLE SITUATION.

Overview of EOG’s Summit Series Challenge Events

 

 

Why do we work out?  Why do we drag ourselves to the gym 4 or 5 days out of the week?  Why do we push out that last rep, or trot out that extra half mile, or try to top a PR on a snatch?

 

Everyone has different reasons for pursuing physical fitness, varying from injury recovery, losing those 10 pounds before the beach, getting ready for a long-awaited ski trip, being able to keep up with kids (and, Lord willing, grandkids), to just fighting off the undesired effects of getting old or sedentary.

 

At EOG we believe that there is also a higher core purpose – we believe that physical fitness is one of the foundational elements necessary for an individual to possess in order to be able to fulfill one of the most primal of RESPONSIBILITIES – to be able to protect yourself and your loved ones in the event of an emergency.

Life throws curve balls at us on a daily basis and we have to be ready for anything and everything, from natural disasters to accidents to violent encounters.

Being physically capable allows us to mentally perform at peak levels when the situation demands – on the flip side, when we are overextended physically, our mental capacity will suffer.  MENTAL CLARITY is one of the most important key foundational elements required for effective action in an emergency situation.

An effective fitness regime should be multi-dimensional and incorporate all of the key components – cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength, muscular endurance, flexibility, body composition, agility, balance, coordination, power, reaction time, and speedEOG’s Summit Series challenge events put each of these components to the test, and adds in one key element – Mental Challenge.

EOG’s Summit Series challenge events not only test the mental capacity of each participant for the specific event, but will also lay technical and knowledge-based building blocks in place to provide a foundation of emergency preparedness.

Did we mention that each participant will have a heck of a lot of fun? – REGARDLESS of fitness level.  Challenge yourself!  Challenge your workout group.  Challenge your family.  Challenge your friends.  Challenge yourself! (yep…that was twice) Learn TONS about what you are capable of….it is SO much more than you think!

 

The EOG Summit Series Challenge Events will be monthly opportunities for individuals and teams to put themselves up against a yardstick – physically, mentally, spiritually, and technically – and have a heck of a lot of fun while doing it in beautiful and historic Lynchburg, TN.

 

Each month will be a different adventure-race competition consisting of endurance, strength, speed, obstacle negotiation, as well as Keep-In-Memory and puzzle- and problem-solving components.

 

Each month will afford the opportunity for participants to utilize and reinforce the emergency preparedness and survival knowledge and skills that are provided as part of the race package.  Life-saving stuff, from guys who thrived in life or death situations.

 

The first flight will launch at 8am on the first or second Saturday of each month, with pre-race registration and final instruction beginning at 6:30am.  Deadline for event completion will usually be 3 hours from start time, but may vary depending on the unique event which will change from month to month.  There will also be 2 Super-Summit events throughout the year with the option of an 8-hour (required for series championship points) or 4-hour event completion deadline.

What is included in the registration packet:

 

Race entry, event t-shirt, visor or socks (depending on season)… (close to a $25 value! – varies per month), AND, access to EOG’s LodeStar, their monthly and bi-monthly newsletter and exclusive online content – a treasure trove of life-saving, life-shaping, and life-expanding information and advice.

EOG’s LodeStar includes information stemming from all of EOG’s elite training programs – programs that save lives.  The staff at EOG consists of the top tier of our military’s Special Operations Forces – Army Special Forces, Delta Force, and Navy Seals, and also includes Law Enforcement Special Operations members.  Content includes tips for daily application to protect you and your family (situational awareness skills, threat detection and avoidance, escape techniques, self-defense combatives, self-defense shooting, home-defense, first-aid, etc…) as well as diverse and rich advice for robust living while being prepared for the worst.

Here is the kicker! – each Summit Series event will include a theme of emergency self-preparedness and personal growth.  Topics will be covered and discussed in depth in the Lodestar to prepare each participant for the upcoming race.  Learning the topics will be reinforced through knowledge tests and practical application during the event – participant performance on the topics will count towards the race score.

 

What kind of topics you can expect to see:

 

Navigation/Orienteering with various resources, First-Aid and Trauma Management, Knot-Tying and Rope Usage (hauling systems, climbing, rappelling), Flora and Fauna Identification, Food Preparation, Water Procurement, Fire-Starting, and MUCH, MUCH more!

Participants can also show up completely unprepared and have a blast!

Awards will be issued to the top contenders at each event for 1st – 3rd place in men’s, women’s, and youth (12-17 year old) individual, and also for the 2-person and 4-person teams (4-person teams must be co-ed – team raw score time is based on last person across the finish line).

A running points tally will be kept for the annual EOG Summit Series Championship Award in men’s, women’s, youth, and 2- and 4-person team categories.  The Summit Series champions will be awarded $2,500!!  Second place will receive $1,500 and third $500!!
