Your best preparation will be to complete several 12 hour Hurricane Heats, but Agoge’s length with lack of sleep makes it difficult to train for. You’ll need to work on your extreme endurance, spending long hours on your feet, completing complex tasks on no sleep and minimal food. Above all, your mind must be ready to endure one of the hardest trials of your life.
Each Agoge has a specific gear list that will be assigned to each student. Moving fast and light in all conditions, with a minimalist mindset to equipment while still carrying all items essential for survival, is a core philosophy. If you have backcountry experience, you’ll be familiar with much of the gear. Don’t worry if you do not - you’ll soon find out.
