Unity Team Rucking Challenge

You and four team members will tackle 25+ miles through areas such as city streets, trails and more.

The Event

Rucking is walking with a weighted pack/ruck on your back. This event is for all rucking abilities as everyone on the team does not have to cover the full 25+ miles. Your team has 10 hours to finish the course or you will not earn your patch and shirt. Every event will feature a service component to it. Here's how it works:

  • Team member #1 will ruck 5+ miles from the start to checkpoint A where they will meet up with team member #2

  • Team members #1 and #2 will then together ruck 5+ miles to checkpoint B where they will meet up with team member #3

  • Team members #1, #2 and #3 will then together ruck 5+ miles to checkpoint C where they will meet up with team member #4

  • Team members #1, #2, #3 and #4 will then together ruck 5+ miles to checkpoint D where they will meet up with team member #5

  • All five team members will then together ruck the final 5+ miles to the finish
