This was a Soldier Competition late in August. Six soldiers marched 12 miles through the foothills of Ft. Carson, Co at the base of the Colorado Rockies. It hit 90 degrees at about 6am. This particular troop was in last place and almost passed out about 10 times. He refused to quit and sprinted down the big hill in the background to come in at 3:58:00 with just two minutes left in the competition.
