Ruck Race Details (view full details and overview at**)

Join us for our free ruck event on April, 20 (Click here for details). Get introduced to rucking, do an act of service, and finish with a beer at Railroad Brewery.

Rucking is carrying a weighted pack while urban hiking. This is a very familiar exercise for special forces. To compete in the Ruck Race, bring a backpack with at least 20 pounds of weight. You will compete on the 5k course and awards will go to the top 3 male and female finishers.
