Get Rucked Up
Get Rucked Up
A free event hosted by Vice City Ruckers
Join us for an introductory ruck (walk with a weighted backpack or rucksack) along with some team building activities. Start and end will be at J. Wakefield Brewing. All attending Ruckers will enjoy $4 Core JWB beers after the ruck.
If you don’t have a ruck, there are loaner rucks available, just select “Loaner Ruck Needed” to reserve one when you register. All you will need to bring is water.
Not comfortable with the weighted backpack but still want to check it out? You can register to be a Shadow. With this option, there is no weight required. You can just come out, walk with us, observe or jump in if you are comfortable, take pictures of the awesomeness and hang out.
During this ruck you will learn about the GORUCK community, their events and make some new friends in the process.
Rucksack, we recommend GORUCK
Reflective band or PT belt on the ruck
Hydration bladder filled with water (2L minimum)
Comfortable Clothes (workout clothes)
Headlamp (For night rucks)
