The identity of a Green Beret and other Special Operations soldiers is held in tandem with his/her place on an operational element. Unprecedented high mission demands coupled with limited decompression times has lead to skyrocketing suicide rates and abuse problems. Currently, our Special Operations community experiences an astonishing 39.3 per 100k suicide rate, nearly double that of our conventional counterparts with no end in sight.
Green Beret Racing seeks to curb the high suicide rate through competition, community, purpose outside of profession, and exposure to events that are seemingly unattainable to the average hobbyist. Our programs span desert racing, street bike, street drag, 3-gun, marathon/human endurance, and dirt bike. We have human powered events such as Ironman and Best Ranger, with the potential for other areas of competition as well. Our belief is that our elite service members competed against their peers to achieve their place among our nations most trusted units and that harnessing this same drive will help them put their coping mechanism down, and give them the desire to set their alarm clocks for something positive. Through these events, we will do more than bring awareness to our rising suicide problems, we will actively fight them.
