Jessica’s Round 2 Ruck
I am so excited to be participating in this 100 mile ruck event for the second year! Last year, I was personally able to raise over $7,000 thanks to your support… I would love to reach $10,000 this year! I will be hosting donation based classes and events at JTB, and would be incredibly grateful for any direct sponsorships for this event. In addition to supporting such an amazing organization, completing the 100 mile ruck last year affected me on many levels personally. It was grueling. It was uncomfortable. It was emotional. I am a better human for having done it and I can’t wait to see what I’m capable of this year.
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. (I didn’t think I would care about this medal last year but once I got it I was so psyched!)
