At dawn, Unit 51 started their 24 Hour Endurance Hike.
Scouts lead the way to clear the path of obstacles.
Hiking through the mountains…
Enjoying a snack in the middle of the night!
Sunrise was a welcomed sight!
The unit runs to formation for the final stretch!
Finally, what could be better than ending such a hike with motivational push-ups?

River crossing in the dark…a fun experience.
The River crossing competition is always a fun challenge. Using Double elimination, the squads battle it out till the last two are standing. The last two squads then compete for the final round! I am not going to spoil their news by announcing the winner, but the final two squads were Alpha and Charlie from Second Platoon!!!

On their third break the men refill their water and stretch.
And the hike continues into the 10th hour…

And the hike is over after covering approximately 30 miles in 12 hours!!

Unit 51 started on Saturday night. Everyone arrived on time and registration went smoothly. Pictures and updates will be posted as activities occur during the next nine weeks. Keep praying for the men as they start a four day long Bible study on heart conditions to prepare themselves for the lessons God has in store for them.
