About this event

5K - 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. A quick route navigation on your phone and then 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 - to your weight requirement
    • 20 lb. Ruck Plate - MEN
    • 10 lb. Ruck Plate - WOMEN
  • Water/Hydration. 1L minimum required for all. For 12 Milers and longer, 3L Bladder and a Nalgene bottle highly recommended.
  • 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 a contractor bag) for keeping stuff 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 2.5 hours to successfully complete your City Ruck 5K and earn the patch.
