I recorded it last night on my DVR and watched it this morning. Made for some good entertainment on a rest day.

Here's approximately what they had to complete:

Run (with pack)
Obstacle course
Shooting/Accuracy
Nighttime trek - 18 miles, in pouring rain, with 60 pound pack
Helidrop
Aiding a [dummy] injured soldier
Night orienteering/ hike (with extra heavy pack)
Climbing/ rapelling
Gun assembly
Aiding a [dummy] injured soldier in simulated combat
'Darby Queen' obstacle course
Blindfold gun assembly
Recite the Ranger creed in simulated combat
Buddy run (no 60 pound pack)

These aren't exactly in order, but pretty close. As I said, it was enjoyable on a rest day. And I was very impressed with most of those guys, that they were able to sustain high output for 60ish hours with (by my count) 5ish hours of sleep.

Anyone else catch this on tv?

Good stuff, I've done everything in the competition singularly, can't imagine doing all in 60 hrs! Foot condtioning and maintenance is huge! It's great drama, I watch every year. Here's a link to the general schedule. There was also pugil stick battles and the Malvesti Obstacle Course in body armor on Day 1. The buddy run is the last event after the water events on day 3, don't remember the distance.

It was on Discovery HD here in NoVA. I think the Military Channel and OLN have aired it in the past.

Thanks, I'll check my SAT listings and see if I can get a replay.
