What is STEALTH Ops?

What is Rucking?

RUCK•ING [VERB] // Walking with a weighted rucksack (aka backpack). It implies action, energy, and purpose. Rucking requires strength, endurance, and character -- and builds it, too.

What is a Stealth event like?

Stealth is a new way to experience Ingress, exercise, and the world around you. The Stealth event begins at 6:00PM on Friday before the anomaly. You'll finish at midnight so you can rest up for the anomaly the next day.

Note: Current run time for Stealth is 6 hours.

Stealth Ops

  • This is a competitive event. Competitions during Stealth Ops will be between the two teams, Resistance vs. Enlightened.
  • For your faction, there is strength in numbers and in diversity. This is BOTH a mental challenge and a physical one. Everyone has different strengths and has something to contribute.
  • Participants that finish this event will receive the exclusive Stealth scanner tiered badge and the physical Stealth patch you can display proudly. Our event patches are always earned, never sold.
  • GORUCK Cadre have executed over 3,000 Challenges similar to this in physicality. Our Cadre are trained to teach you how to succeed when you work together that’s their mission. The average pass rate for those who show up is 94%. The average pass rate for those who do not show up is always 0.
  • To receive your Anomaly badge and memorabilia, you must also register separately for the Anomaly through Niantic registration.

What to Bring

  • A rucksack or backpack (any kind will do, but of course we recommend GORUCK gear https://www.goruck.com/rucksacks/)
  • 20 LB Weight Requirement (ruck plates recommended). If you are flying in and cannot provide your own weight, talk to your GORUCK player POC assigned to your faction. They can assist.
  • Water, 2L minimum (hydration bladder recommended)
  • Reflective ruck bands on your ruck for safety
  • Your Ingress Scanner
  • Headlamp with extra batteries
  • As a team, you will also need at least one flag for your faction. Host country flags are always welcome but not required.

    Do the Stealths count for getting the GRT status to join the FB groups or do i need to participate in a Light or Tough Challenge from GORUCK?

    Is there a limit age for teenagers to participate on a Stealth?

    Where can i find pictures/info from past Stealths?

    Thanks a lot! im waiting to see the 2020 schedule!!

  • Great questions!

    1. If joining the Tough page is your jam, Stealth is a worthy requirement to be considered a GRT.
    2. Yes, there is an age limit. [email protected] can clarify more for you, as some minors are allowed to attend with parental attendance.
    3. Let's create a link here for photos and videos! Great idea.
    4. Our 2020 schedule for GORUCK was just launched this week, our Ingress schedule for October should drop any day now.
  • Unless things changed in the recent past, Stealth have not qualified anyone for the Tough page; they will get you into ruck all though. Stealths seem to have shifted toward more GORUCK and less Ingress as far as content goes.

    Event pics are usually online and can be found with a search engine... Or ask in your faction's event chats.
