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 participants take to the hills, trails and roadways of Marine Corps Base Quantico while wearing weighted packs. Need more? The Crossroads Challenge, also held the same day, offers participants the change to participate in both, the Ruck and Run Amuck, the popular mud and obstacle run.
