Recon Ruck

When a standard run doesn't satisfy the desire for more, choose the harder thing and ruck it. The Recon Ruck sends participants into Quantico's hills, trails and roadways for a 12-mile journey while wearing a weighted pack.

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.
