About this event

Start at one of our favorite bars at GrandCamp-Maisey and ruck down to the German Cemetery. Flipping back around, you will ruck to Pointe Du Hoc, jump on the best rucking trail on the planet, and stop at the Omaha Beach Memorial. You will turn back and ruck trail all the way back towards GrandCamp-Maisey, meeting your Cadre at our favorite bar where he will award you your patch.



- 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.
