GORUCK is proud to partner with Race on the Base in 2020 to bring rucking to the 5K. What is rucking? Rucking is the foundation of Special Forces training and as simple as walking with some weight in a backpack. Add a new challenge to your 5K this year by wearing a ruck/backpack.
Also known as foot marching, ruck marching, but usually just plain “rucking” – is very effective. It sounds simple, but it can burn up to two times the number of calories when compared to an unweighted walk. What’s more, it can benefit your posture and back strength. It’s common to use weight plates or other compact items for the necessary weight. You can carry your own back pack and use any type of weight or purchase a rucksack HERE. Please do not discard equipment on the course as it is considered Foreign Object Debris (FOD) on a military active airfield. Please do not leave equipment unattended at any time on Base. All finishers are timed and will receive a Race on the Base finisher medal.
