    Literally every single person who has been involved with this match has told us we don't charge enough. Between that and selling out in under a minute yet again last year, we are listening and raising the match fees this year to try to raise as much money as we can to help our friends from the 5th Special Forces Group.

    Match Fees for 2023 are as follows:

    5k: $150
    10k: $200
    Team Night Match: $500 ($250/shooter)

    We are streamlining and refining the equipment divisions this year. There will only be two equipment classes to reflect the different ways Green Berets fight:

    “Lightfighter” in which you can carry whatever you want, but are limited to one pistol and one rifle; or

    “Operator” in which you must FINISH the race with a pack weighing at least 45 lbs (not including your main rifle, pistol, and belt/chest rig) – but that pack may (and should) contain ANYTHING that can give you an advantage. The only limit is that pistol targets must be engaged with pistol rounds, and rifle targets must be engaged with rifle rounds. Want to carry a PCC? Be our guest. Think a scoped bolt gun or different upper in 6.5 Creedmore will give you an advantage? Go for it. You can even carry a shotgun to engage steel pistol targets if you want (birdshot only). Any weapons carried must be IN ADDITION to a primary rifle and pistol, and weight of the pack MAY include the weight of armor plates if you want to either wear or carry them in the pack. Packs may be removed prior to shooting, as that is how 5th Group would generally do it as well – but this will be done on your run time and BEFORE any wait time starts.

    The Team Night Match will have no equipment divisions. Anything you want to carry for the entire course and that will not damage props/targets or cause a safety issue is allowed.

    Registration will open at 10:00am Central Time on Saturday, June 10th. This is 90 days before match day, and should give you plenty of time to train up and find make travel plans. Lodging is limited in this area and there is another event at the nearby State Park this weekend, so secure lodging ASAP or you might end up camping onsite ($10/night - purely primitive camping).

    This is the 5k registration link: https://practiscore.com/5k-legion-9-...-2023/register
    This is the 10k registration link: https://practiscore.com/10k-legion-m...-2023/register
    This is the Team Night Match registration link: https://practiscore.com/team-night-m...-2023/register

    Competitors will only be allowed to register for ONE match at this time to allow as many different people in as possible. If you register for more than one, I'm going to delete it. If there are openings as we get closer to match day, we may allow multiple match entries.

    The past several years this match has sold out in under one minute. If you want in, make plans to be near a computer and hitting the "refresh" key repeatedly right at 10:00am on June 10th. If you don't get in - be sure to get on the waitlist as I'm holding several slots for active duty 5SFG that may become available to the public at the last minute.

    Approved staff should have just received an email with instructions on how to register ahead of the masses. Let me know if you think you're staff but haven't received this.

    We honored Kenton Stacy at the 2018 Legion Memorial Run N Gun (Stage 3: Raqqah Rumble: https://youtu.be/_Y-38wzV29A). He was grievously injured in a blast in Syria in 2017 - but survived! Every day has been a struggle since then, for both he and his family. His wife created a Facebook page for him to keep everyone updated on his progress (and his setbacks).

    PLEASE take a few dollars and a few minutes from your day to mail him a birthday card for his 40th birthday. Share it with all your friends. I would love nothing more than for this to go viral and we'll see him get so many cards they won't all fit on the cruise ship!

    Our very first stage this year will set the sentiment for the entire match: Stage 1 honors CPT Trevor Graves. Co-founder of the Legion Memorial Run N Gun. Deep conversationalist (in five different languages!) and enthusiast in so many varied subjects it was impossible to keep track. A guy with truly big ideas who poured his heart and soul into making each one happen - usually at a frenetic pace most of us struggled to keep up with.

    In this stage: react to an attack, work at an insane optempo, improvise adapt and overcome on the fly, shoot from a moving vehicle, and partner with actual Green Berets to overcome the enemy.

    In another "humbling first" for us, Stage 2 will be designed by a teammate of the fallen we are honoring: SSG Jason L. Brown.

    In this stage: defend against a surprise attack, apply first aid to your downed teammate, then eliminate the enemy before they can escape.

    Comms warning: just like last year, there will be an advantage to carrying a radio on your kit.

    Every Operational Detachment Alpha (ODA, the basic team unit of Special Forces) has TWO 18Es (Special Forces Communications Sergeant) - this is how critical comms are to SF. They are the communication "specialists" on the team and make sure the team can communicate internally (short range comms), they can talk back to command/intel/whoever (long range comms), and even communicate with and provide basic air traffic control for supporting aircraft on a mission.

    To try to give you JUST A TASTE of integrating comms into your match, we're adding a special bonus this year. IF YOU CARRY A RADIO ON YOUR KIT AND KNOW HOW TO USE IT, YOU'LL HAVE AN ADVANTAGE. During the morning brief, you'll be given the "enemy radio frequency" (this will be somewhere in the 70cm UHF ham band) to monitor while you run. If you know how to use your gear and pay attention, you'll hear the enemy transmitting information that can help you. You DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE A HAM LICENSE to do this. Anyone can listen to any frequency at any time - no license is needed for that.

    If you don't want to fool with this at all you don't have to. You can still run the course and complete all the challenges, but you may miss the extra bonus that comes if you know how to run comms on your kit.

    The night team match may require actual radio communication between team members. Radios will be provided there for those who don't have them, but team match guys will be MUCH more efficient if they have their own radios and have practiced communicating with them while moving and firing. Just sayin' -
