100KM - RUCK NORMANDY
About this event

The best way to see all the 5 code-named beaches is by rucking, so this year we are providing that opportunity. You will start at Utah Beach and ruck to the German Cemetery before heading North to Pointe Du Hoc. From Pointe Du Hoc, you will ruck to Omaha Beach on our favorite rucking trail passing through Omaha Beach, Gold Beach, Juno Beach, and finishing at Sword Beach, meeting your Cadre for patches and beer. 

 

100KM - CITY RUCK

- Ruck it solo or with friends

- Fun ruck it or race for time - your call

- This is our kind of fun, and we have cold victory beers at the finish line

 

GORUCK is The Rucking Company, and we have executed over 10,000 rucking events since 2010, empowering a global community of ruckers. The City Rucking Series is a great way to join GORUCK Nation, to meet people who live our way of life, and to explore your city or a new one on foot.

 

HOW IT WORKS: At the start point, your Cadre will give you the waypoints/points of interest that comprise your route. After a quick route navigation on your phone, you’ll get going. When you successfully complete your City Ruck, your GORUCK Cadre will hand you a cold beer and a patch that will never be for sale.

 

WHAT TO BRING - REQUIRED:

- A rucksack (Rucker recommended)

- Must have reflectivity

- Ruck Plate (or equivalent) in your rucksack

- Weight requirement: 20 lb. Ruck Plate for MEN and 10 lb. Ruck Plate for WOMEN

- Water/Hydration: 3L required. Hydration Bladder and a Nalgene bottle highly recommended.

- Headlamp + extra batteries - Strobe Light (with fresh batteries)

- Any medication you might need

- Photo ID

- Smartphone + spare battery. This is how you will navigate your point to point route.

- Smiles

 

RECOMMENDED (BUT NOT REQUIRED) ITEMS:

- Extra layers of clothing. Think: merino wool socks and a shell. Pay close attention to the weather — if it’s gonna be cold, make sure you have a windbreaker

- Dry Bag (or equivalent, such as a contractor bag) for keeping everything in your ruck dry.

- Supportive footwear. GORUCK recommended because it’s the best for people who carry weight and live on their feet.

- Food, snacks, electrolytes — you are of course able to stop anywhere along your route to resupply.

 

TIME STANDARD: You have 24 hours to successfully complete your Normandy Ruck and earn the 100KM patch.
