AOG Q&A with Travis Rolph of Mayflower Research & Consulting

Monday, October 14th, 2013

Travis Rolph is an old friend of mine. When he told me he was going to run the Grand to Grand Ultra race I must admit, I was a bit skeptical. That’s a lot of race for a first time out. But I also know that nothing stops Bad Travis. I mean, the guy’s got a posse. But I digress. He did it. The stories he’s told me about the race have been fascinating and I’m glad to say that he shared some of the experience with some other guys that I like, Adventure Operations Group.


At AOG our mission is to train for “beyond normal limits” mindset and performance. Drawing inspiration and influence from the Special Operations community, as well as other elite performers and outdoor athletes, we lead individuals and teams to accomplish more than they imagine possible by applying “SOF Focus”. The principles of SOF focus are grounded in the truths of Special Operations Warriors and in the mindset of constant preparation and improving capabilities that all elite performers possess.

AOG recently caught up with Travis Rolph, retired 5th SFG Green Beret, owner of Mayflower Research & Consulting and modern day adventurer, to hear about his most recent mission, competing in the Grand to Grand Ultra race. The Grand to Grand ultra is a 7 day stage race that covers approximately 169 miles over an epic course.

In addition to lectures on preparing bags, the course will culminate in an afternoon scenario-based practical exercise where students will be tested on all the skills and equipment they have learned how to use, as they complete a bail out mission. This course will involve moderate physical challenges such as walking over uneven terrain and trails while carrying a small pack and navigating as a team.

This is a course I definitely want to attend. The subject matter is very poignant and the guys at AOG are awesome!
