  • What is rucking?
    Rucking is a form of fitness training that involves walking or hiking with a loaded backpack (also known as a rucksack) over various distances.
  • Do I need any prior experience or fitness level to participate?
    Rucking can be adapted to different fitness levels, and no prior experience is necessary. However, it's always recommended to consult with a healthcare professional before starting any new fitness activity.
  • How long is the event?
    You will have the option on the day of the race to choose between a 4, 6, and 8 miles course.
  • How heavy should my backpack be?
    The weight of your backpack will depend on your fitness level and the specific event requirements. Beginners might start with lighter weights, around 10-20 pounds, while more experienced participants might carry heavier loads. If you are training, it's important to gradually increase the weight to avoid injuries.
