RUCK•ING [VERB] // Walking with a weighted rucksack (aka backpack). It implies action, energy, and purpose. Rucking requires strength, endurance, and character — and builds it, too.
Rucking is cardio.
Cardio for people who think running sucks. Rucking for fitness will get you off the treadmill and into the world. If you want to burn up to 3X as many calories as walking, ruck instead. Your heart pumps faster during a rucking workout to get oxygen rich blood throughout your body, increasing circulation. And you can talk to your friend, who’s rucking right next to you.
This year, we have teamed up with the Johnson City Ruck Club and have decided to add a rucking division. If you are interested or have questions, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
On top of receiving your race t-shirt and medal, you will receive a GORUCK patch as you cross the finish line.
