100 Mile Ruck March Challenge
100 Mile Ruck March – Alex Silkman
I am extremely proud to be joining in on this event after seeing how much of an impact the 2021 Ruck March had for Why Me and their cause.
Please help us reach our goals by donating and spreading the word !
Below are some details about the event and Why Me.
Why Me Sherrys House is a Worcester-based nonprofit that helps families cope with Childhood cancer. For 36 years Why Me has supported families through the initial cancer diagnosis to all of the ongoing support needed both emotionally and financially.
A ruck march is a military term for walking with a weighted rucksack, essentially a big backpack, Rucking often implies traveling long distances while carrying what you need to survive.
The 100 Mile Ruck March Challenge is a military inspired event, where a small group of Athletes will Ruck (hike) 25 miles a day for 4 days. Camping out each night on the farm of a local brewery and continuing the march at sunrise each morning. Athletes will carry everything they will need for this 4-day event on their backs, navigate the 100 mile course, cook their own meals, set up and break down their own camps each night, tend to their feet and bodies, all in an attempt to earn the coveted 100 Mile Ruck March Finisher Medal.
