About this event

50 MILER - BEST RUCKER
WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS OF RUCKING

Earn bragging rights for finishing; even more if you win it.

  • 45# Ruck Plate for men
  • 30# Ruck Plate for women
  • 20 Hour time hack to earn the finisher’s patch that will never be for sale

A PRESIDENTIAL SPECIAL FORCES RUCKING CHALLENGE

In 1908, Teddy Roosevelt issued an executive order to members of the military, later echoed by JFK:
“Do 50 miles in under 20 hours.”

This is our kind of fun and we recommend you train hard for this one. This is the first time we’ve offered the 50 Miler at the increased 45/30# Ruck Plate (or equivalent) weights. We’re excited to see how you do.


SWEETENER 

Store credit for the winners (male and female)

  • 1st Place - $1,000
  • 2nd Place - $500
  • 3rd Place - $250

We will double the store credit if you wear a GORUCK rucksack and GORUCK footwear for the duration of the event.


COMMUNITY PARTY

We run this event out of GORUCK Scars & HQ in Jax Beach and there are a bunch of other Ruck Jax distances (26.2, 12 Miler, 15K, 10K, 5K) for friends and loved ones to do if they don’t want to take a shot at the title of Best Rucker. We celebrate all who show up and there will be a big ass party that seems to last all day and picks up as more people make their way back to the finish line.

Per norm, this party is open to all.


WHAT TO BRING - REQUIRED

  • A rucksack (Rucker recommended) - must have reflectivity
  • Ruck Plate (or equivalent) in your rucksack - to your weight requirement
    • 45 lb. Ruck Plate - MEN
    • 30 lb. Ruck Plate - 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 20 hours to successfully complete your City Ruck 50 Miler and earn the patch.
