Are you tough enough?

Join Big Sky Bravery and Moving Mountains as we celebrate our Veterans with a ruck on November 11th and give back to the community by providing food for the Big Sky Community Food Bank.

Rucking is simply walking with weight on your back and is a staple of military training.  There is no weight limit for this ruck, though we do ask you to fill your packs with food to be donated to the Big Sky Food Bank at the completion of the ruck. Items such as bags of rice, beans and peas carry easily in a pack and are in high demand, especially black beans.  Canned goods and produce such as onions and potatoes also carry well in a pack. The food bank can accept canned goods up to a year after the expiration date. If you have items you would like to donate that won't carry well, we can weigh your items and provide you with the equivalent weight to carry. 

The 6 mile loop will begin at Moving Mountains and walk the Uplands/Hummocks trail system, finishing back at Moving Mountains. 

Each participant receives a shirt and the first 25 people to register will also receive a water bottle. Registration includes a shirt, raffle ticket and a post race meal. 

Your raffle ticket gives you a chance to win one of 4 prizes:

Half of a grass fed pig:

"Generously sponsored by Aarogya Holistic and Functional Medicine, we're thrilled to announce a donation of half a pork from Broken T Ranches, in Twin Bridges, MT. This offering includes half a pig artisanly butchered and wrapped (about 65 lbs of meat). Broken T Ranch is renowned for raising holistic, free-range pasture pigs, thoughtfully nourished with a sustainable diet of non-GMO, corn-free, and soy-free feed. Aarogya Holistic and Functional Medicine passionately believes in the profound connection between our food choices and overall well-being, and they're dedicated to promoting a holistic approach to enhancing their patients' wellness journey."

Or a Rucker 4.0 (25L) pack from GORUCK:

The Rucker® is the gym on your back that revolutionized the fitness category of rucking (carrying weight on your back). These bags are purpose built for rucking with an elevated pocket designed for Ruck Plates, reinforced construction, extra padded straps and multiple handles to make it a versatile training tool. The Rucker® is the only rucksack you need to get stronger one rep and one mile at a time.

We will hold the ruck regardless of weather or trail conditions to pay our respect to those that have marched in all conditions to protect our freedom.
