RUCK

What is a Ruck?
A ruck is short for rucksack (military slang for a backpack.) It can also mean the action of rucking or going on a ruck march. For example, you might say: “I rucked 10 miles yesterday with a 20lb weight in my backpack.”  

You can "ruck" with any amount of weight with a minimum amount of 20 pounds.  

Rucking Tips – The basics:

1. Grab a backpack

2. Load it up with at least 20 lbs of weight; can be bricks, dumbbells, plates, anything to get the 20 lbs.

3. Move - the distance and the pace is totally up to you.

Only rule - you have to keep the weight on for your entire distance.

ALL participants begin at the same time at the gun start at 8am.  Early or late starters will not be included in the results.

If you have fun at this one you will most definitely want to put the Frickin’ Hot 50K on your calendar for August 6th  Same idea, same course.  Only differences are that we start and finish at the Cassadaga Beach so that you can jump in the lake and cool off, and hot dogs will be grilled instead of pancakes.
