Veterans Remembrance Ruck 10K Ruck & 5K Race is an event with an emphasis on teams. (Individuals may run the race, but we encourage you to find a team of 4.) Rucks are weighted backpacks or vests – 40 lbs. for the men and 20 lbs. for the women. All team members must cross the finishline to get official time. (*Due to availability of 40 lb. versus 45 lb. vest at sporting good stores, we have decreased the men’s weight requirement.)
Team RWB is a non-profit veterans organization with the mission to enrich the lives of American Veterans by connecting them to their community through fitness and social activities such as this Ruck/Run or other.
