We are offering two different divisions.
FUN RUCK/RUN: This is a non-competitive trail run. Expect a 5k+ course. You can choose to RUCK, RUN or WALK in this division. You will not be officially timed nor have a weight requirement. You will however still earn a finishers award.
RACE RUCK: This is the competitive heat. Expect a 10-13K+ Course. Competitors are required to have a 30# (male)/20#(female) weight plate or similar, in their ruck at all times. The ruck, water and food do not count towards the required weight. To make this easy, we suggest a single weight plate meeting that required weight. There are finisher’s awards and podium awards for the top 3 male and female.
This is an individual’s event of a rucking based workout/movement. Competitors are required to have a 30# male/20# female weight plate or similar in their ruck at all times. This is a competitive event with the total movement lasting 60-90 minutes. There are finisher’s awards and podium awards for the top 3 male and female.
The Finals event takes the top 8 male and top 8 female that competed in both the TRAIL and GAMES events and have them battle it out one more time to determine the overall RUCK:FEST winners! There will also be an overall podium awards for top 3 male and female competitors. You must compete in both the RUCK:TRAIL and RUCK:GAMES events to qualify for the FINALS event.

This is now a 3 person team event. You and your team will complete a series of rucking workouts/movements. Competitors are required to have a 30# (male)/20#(female) weight plate or similar, in their ruck at all times. The ruck, water and food do not count towards the required weight. This is a race. Some of these movements will be straight forward, but some may require strategy. Build your team with strength and speed in mind. The movements will be unknown until the day of the event. Expect the total movement to take 6-8 hours. There are finisher’s awards and podium awards for the top 3 teams.
