The Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command (MARSOC) is holding a new recruiting event this weekend that will allow active-duty Marines the opportunity to prove whether or not they have what it takes to become an operator.

The MARSOC Strength Challenge will focus on the physical requirements to become an operator

The Strength Challenge, scheduled for April 26, will take place at MARSOC headquarters at Stone Bay, part of Camp Lejeune, N.C.

Capt. Barry Morris, a MARSOC spokesman, told the Marine Corps Times that participants will be put through “a 10-minute test of physical stamina that includes pull-ups and strength exercises using weighted prowler sleds, according to promotional materials.”

The event will be similar to the mobile pull-up bar challenge that Marine recruiters bring to public events to promote enlistment, but will be limited to male and female active-duty Marines, Morris said.

The event is open to the first 100 registrants.
