100 Mile Ruck March Challenge
Casey – No Stopping this Time Around
Last year, an injury cut my ruck short at the 63-mile mark. That didn’t stop my friends and family from helping to raise almost $5000 for this amazing cause! To say this event changed me would be an understatement. There were a lot of lessons learned from last year; some I’d rather not repeat but most I’ll carry with me. One of the biggset takeaways was just how much love and support there is in our community. Why Me is an incredible organization helping families go through one of the hardest things imaginable.
Remember – EVERY dollar raised goes directly to Why Me, and every donation (no matter how big or small) goes a long way.
Not sure what this is all about?
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.
