Ruck ‘N’ Run brings together Veterans and Civilians in a fun, motivating yet challenging event to honor those who serve(d) in the U.S. Military while raising awareness and benefiting local Veteran organizations.

We've raised $6,500 and 3,177lbs of food for local Veteran organizations! With your help, we can donate more!

Raising Awareness & Benefiting These Local Veteran Organizations:

1. Combat Boots & High Heels (CB&HH):
A Veteran 501(c)(3) that strives to Engage, Enable, and Empower men and women through mentorship and assistance. CB&HH is additionally focused on addressing certain unique needs that female service members encounter. CB&HH volunteers and advocates tirelessly dedicate themselves to battling the negative effects present in today's Veteran community, such as suicide, depression, homelessness, unemployment, and poverty.
More information at: www.combatbootsandhighheels.org

2. Find a local Veterans shelter and give canned goods. These canned goods can be placed in your rucksack as weight. Please let us know how much you've donated.

ROUTE: You choose the 5.56K course (just over 3.45 miles).

Ruckers walk with their own rucksack/backpack. 
You can choose to walk without a ruck.
Runners do not have a rucksack/backpack.

You have the option of completing the 5 exercise stations. Ruckers...It's your choice to keep your ruck on or take it off during the exercises. The weight of your ruck is totally up to you.

We highly recommended that each participant practice these 5 exercises along a 5.56K route on their own time, prior to the event. Train hard.

Tip: Having a rucksack with a waist belt is better than having a regular school backpack.

1. Push ups
2. Jumping Jacks
3. Mountain Climbers
4. Body Weight Squats
5. Burpees

There are 2 options to choose from; 10 reps OR 25 reps of the station exercises.
