The Bar Ruck

La Crosse’s ONLY 100% for Charity Bar Ruck!

What Is A Ruck?  A ruck is a term for walking with a pack.  The term is near and dear to the military as an integral part of training.  But this ruck has a twist.  In true Wisconsin style we will be making stops throughout the route at local bars for a quick drink!    

When & Where?    We will kick it off Saturday, September 7th @ 12:00pm at Turtle Stack Brewery.

How Long Is It?  The route is roughly 5 miles and there is no required finish time.  You can stay in your wave or go at your own pace but we will shall leave no man behind!

Do you have to ruck? And how much weight? No.  Rucks are not required to participate.  You can choose to walk the route with no weight.  If you wish to add a little more of a fitness challenge to the event you can!  We would suggest 20-50 lbs of weight depending on the individual.

What is the cost and what is included?  The cost to participate will be $20 and if you register before August 28th it will include a Ruck On T-Shirt. All funds collected will be donated to the First Responders Outreach Program through the Gary Sinise Foundation in honor of 9/11.

How Does It Work?  Step 1. Sign up with a donation to First Responders Outreach (Link Below). Step 2. Follow the team at your own pace.  You can grab a drink at each place or just take some time to hang out with a cool group of people who are also out to have fun and honor those who served!
