Ruck Walk

Challenge white backing.png

​All walkers, rollers and riders are welcome to join the free Ruck Walk.  Active and retired military are encouraged to wear their ruck sacks as they walk, but carrying a sack is not necessary.  Ruck sacks will also be available for purchase at the event, for those that desire to "walk in their shoes." 

The roots of rucking lie deep in the military, where long hikes with heavily loaded backpacks are the norm.  Timed ruck marches prepare soldiers to move themselves and their essential gear for long distances quickly. ​ The typical ruck sack weighs 50-55 pounds and includes tools, food, water, clothing, and basic essential for one soldier.
