Ruck Sacks/Backpacks. Participants are “encouraged” to bring a backpack that is at least 22lbs, in memory of those that have fallen to suicide. Please consider filling your backpack with items to donate to our “Homeless Veterans Program” after finishing the March.

Some ideas for items to put in your backpack, to donate to homeless veterans program:

New under clothes: shirts, underwear and socks.
Hygiene items.
Camping/survival type items. No sharp objects please.
Non-perishable items.
To be in the running for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes/gifts a 22lb backpack is required (Men and Woman Classes). Weigh-in before and after Ruck is required.

3 Miles. The entire Ruck March route is roughly 3 miles; mainly flat with one hill, on paved and dirt roads, friendly for all ages; those that run the ruck usually come in at around 30mins, those that walk usually come in at around 60mins. Route maps will be provided at the sign in table, and route will also be marked with signage. We will have all participants sign a release of liability at sign in between 9am to 945am.
