100 Mile Ruck March 2024
David Lamontagne – 100 Mile Ruck March 2024
I have been eyeing this event for several years. It seems like the perfect fit – I get to try something different that tests my physical and mental endurance all while giving back to the community. This year I get to do it! My friends know that to me each event I participate in is a journey where the event itself is just the last chapter of a great story-I look forward to sharing my journey with many and enjoying the ride! You may ask why am I doing this – Because I Can!
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 camps each night, tend to their feet and bodies, all in an attempt to earn the coveted 100 Mile Ruck March Finisher Medal.
100% of the proceeds go to Why Me & Sherry’s House a grass roots non-profit organization dedicated to providing love and support services to families with childhood cancer. It’s run in part by parents that lived this experience first-hand, the dedicated staff and volunteers understand what families with a pediatric cancer patient need and are passionate about services provided.
