Description

Queen City Rucking for 22 is a Ruck-March (Hiking) EVENT with a purpose by and for active Hero's and Patriots. It is a coordinated fundraising event for Specialist Trevor Banks Foundation, a 501c3 charity organization.   Teams ruck-march for up to 22K (5hrs) or on the 5mile course, while carrying weight that symbolizes the burden that many veterans carry post-war or post-trauma. 

  • A fun fitness Team building event. Teams are made up from 2 person or more.
  • This is a rucking event...Weight Standard: If you are under 150 lbs, carry a 10 lb weight and if you are over 150 lbs, carry 20 lbs. Each participant will have a 10 or 20 lb Ruck Plate (or equivalent in non-consumable weight) in their rucksack at the start point. This is our 2st annual event, we are not making this mandatory if you haven't ever rucked before. We would like you to carry a ruck with your water and light snacks just to get a feel of what rucking is like. Carrying weight in your ruck/backpack during the mission represents the weight many service members carry in the battle against combat stress

  • There will be two courses:
  • 1 course will be at least 5miles for our Boots, those of you that have never rucked before.
