USU Army ROTC Hosts Annual Jim Bridger Challenge

Thursday, Apr. 25, 2013

Utah State University’s Army ROTC is hosting its annual Jim Bridger Challenge on Friday, April 26, from 12:30 to 3 p.m.


The Jim Bridger Challenge is a fundraising opportunity for the Utah State detachment of the Army ROTC. The intent is to build community awareness and support of the ROTC while promoting fitness in a fun, competitive atmosphere.


Community members are encouraged to form a team and compete against the USU cadets. The challenge will include several Army-centered events, including a knife throw, ‘Wounded Soldier Carry,’ rope bridges and a ruck march.


Participants should arrive at the ROTC building before 12:30 p.m. Any media who wish to attend are asked to report by noon where they will be escorted to the various areas of competition.
