Ruck Run Virtual 4 Mi, 8 Mi, & 12 Mi

Race: Ruck Run Virtual 4 Mi, 8 Mi, & 12 Mi
Fri May 1 - Sun July 5 Lake Zurich, IL 60047 US

Change up your workout and go ruck! Grab a back pack (rucksack) and some friends, fill up your backpack with weight (we recommend between 20-35 pounds to get the full effect), and walk/run/jog 4 miles, 8 miles, or 12 miles to complete your ruck. No weights? No problem! You can fill your backpack with water bottles, water gallons, frozen food, or other common household items. Your participation will help support US Troops through our charity partners: Salute, Inc., Caritas of Austin, K9s for Warrior’s and Semper Fi & America’s Fund

Here is how it works...
1. Register to ruck 4 miles, 8 miles or 12 miles.
2. Conquer the distance on your own on a course of your choosing, with a weight of your choosing, and then report your time to be added to the national results leader board.
3. Get your gear mailed to your front door and keep on ruckin'!

Use #RuckRun when sharing your photos from your ruck!

The commemorative shirt is included with registration. Add on the finisher medal for $9 extra!
