Join The Arashikage Challenge

G.I. Joe Snake Eyes | Join The Arashikage Challenge

Snake Eyes and the Arashikage Clan are in search of more ninja warriors! Are you up for the challenge? To become an Arashikage warrior, Snake Eyes had to complete three challenges. You'll be doing the same. Complete one test of strength, one of endurance, and one of agility and you'll earn the title of ninja warrior! 

How to Participate

To become a Arashikage ninja warrior complete these 3 challenges testing for strength, endurance and agility.

STRENGTH 

Tackle a ruck run, walk, or roll of 5K (3.1 miles). To do this, you'll complete your task by adding weight to your activity. "Ruckers" often accomplish this by wearing a backpack with a dumbbell or other weighted object in it. You can also accomplish it by wearing a weighted vest, or wearing ankle or wrist weights. Do what you're most comfortable with and do your best!

endurance

This test is straightforward. In one hour, go as far as you can. How you move is up to you, but you have 60 minutes to make it as far as you can.


agility

This test will challenge you to move quickly. How fast can you run a 5K? You'll find out by completing your test of agility. Lace up your shoes and get out there!
