About the wod
Background: This workout was a part of GoRuck‘s August Monthly Challenge back in 2019.
During the 1960s, the Military Assistance Training Advisor (MATA) Course was established at Fort Bragg, NC, to prepare non-Special Forces officers and Noncommissioned Officers (NCOs) to advise and train foreign and indigenous forces. Incorporated into the course was a circuit training task that many Special Forces teams used for physical training in preparation for deployments. The training course was called the “MATA Mile” and consisted of stations for physical activity spaced out with runs/rucks in between each station.
