How it Works:
DOWNLOAD HERE. Choose from 5k, 10k, 15k or 12 Miles. If your city doesn’t have a hit list, create your own. Pick the waypoints for a 12 miler (scaling down the mileage to one of the shorter distances above is easy to do on your own), fill out this form and we will add it to the public folder as soon as possible so that others can complete it too.
STEP 2: Get a rucksack (or any backpack) and some weight.
10 lbs if you weigh under 150 lbs and 20 lbs if you weigh over 150 lbs or want more of a challenge. Check out Ruck Plates, the best weight to ruck.
STEP 3: Plot your route and go to the waypoints.
Take a picture at each for more fun. Share with us on social @goruck for bragging rights too.
STEP 4: Make it to all of the waypoints in the following prescribed time limits:
5k – 2.5 hrs; 10k – 3 hrs; 15k – 3.5 hrs, 12 mi – 5 hrs.
- If you’re rucking alone, go out during daylight hours and avoid any areas or neighborhoods that could pose danger. Bring your cell phone in case of emergency.
- If a waypoint is a location (park or beach or building) that is currently closed, pick a new spot nearby – do not break any laws or unnecessarily tax law enforcement now or ever.
- Bring plenty of water and snacks. Stores and restaurants may be closed in your area, so bring everything you need to stay hydrated and energized.
