Worth The Weight
A 'ruck' can be simply described as walking a long distance while wearing a backpack or, for Marines, moving quickly with all the required military gear over rugged terrain. Whether using the term ‘ruck’ or ‘hump,’ Marines know they have to summon the strength and stamina to cover a long distance with the heightened challenge of carrying additional weight. At Recon Ruck, participants will navigate a 12-mile course on Quantico’s roads and trails while carrying a weighted pack.
The Recon Ruck challenges participants to cover 19.17K or just under 12 miles through Quantico's hills, trails and roadways. Happening on the same day as Run Amuck, the Crossroads Challenge and the Belleau Wood 8K, the Recon Ruck presents a new way for motivated individuals to participate in the MCM Event Series.
