The 3rd Annual Chattanooga Brew Ruck Challenge will take place on March 20, 2021. This is a team-only event consisting of Rucking (hiking with weight), Lifting (various objects), and Thinking (navigation, trivia, crossword puzzles, etc.). This years' version will see some fun new changes that will keep Teams competing until they reach the finish.
NEW FOR 2021: Points will be accumulated during the event giving ALL Teams the chance to win. Points will be earned the following ways:
HOW IT WORKS:
The event will consist of rucking (aka: hiking with weight) to several breweries around Chattanooga on either a 2-person or 4-person Team. Make no mistake, this event is a ruck challenge, so you will need to have some fitness, however, the most important factor is that you have fun. You're going to be carrying weight, you may be consuming beer (optional, not required), and you will be doing this with your friends over the course of approximately 10 miles so expect to have some lasting memories.
All Teams will be issued the list of brewery locations during the team meeting. At certain breweries Teams will be given a specific task to complete; these tasks are mandatory in order to receive your finishers patch. Tasks to be completed may include the following: beer trivia questions, crossword puzzles, bucket tosses, singing, physical challenges (or possibly all of the above). If your TEAM fails certain tasks, a penalty may be issued in which ALL Team members must complete before moving to the next brewery location.
Prior to the event start your Team Captain must create a unique TEAM NAME on Instagram, do NOT use your personal Instagram page. Teams that participated last year may use the same Team Name or create a new one. Once the Team Name is created your Team must follow @ChattanoogaBrewRuck on Instagram. At each brewery, your Team will be responsible for posting a selfie photo with all members of the Team included, along with the brewery logo in the background (be creative), and the appropriate #hashtags (provided in race packet). This will be used for tracking each Team during the event and to prove you were at each location.
Men will be required to carry 30lbs and women 20lbs of dry weight in their packs. Dry weight does not include water or food. All Rucks/Packs WILL be weighed during the team meeting
Upon completion, participants will receive their custom Chattanooga Brew Ruck Challenge patch.
***No purchase is required at any of the participating brewery locations to earn your finishers patch***

Registration fees will increase March 1st, so don't procrastinate, sign your Team up!
There will be a MANDATORY team meeting held @10:00am at Wanderlinger Brewing Co. (1208 King St, Chattanooga, TN 37403). Parking is available in their parking lot but be advised that there is a fee to park - machine located in parking lot. MASKS will be required to be worn during the team meeting and we will do our best to social distance and space tables 6' apart.
Once your Team arrives at Wanderlinger Brewing, only the Team Captain will be allowed to "check-in" their Team (this is to reduce heavy volumes of gathering). There will be a table set up for 2-person Teams and a table set up for 4-person Teams. Have your Team Captain come to the appropriate table to collect the rules/instructions packet and to verify that all team members are present.
Rucks will be weighed outside on the sidewalk along the building when advised. We will split this up into two different groups, first will be the 2-person Teams and then the 4-person Teams.
