Nearly Naked Ruck March - Twin Cities
EVENT DATE: Nov 11, 2017
The What and Why
Hike 10 miles in your long underwear and carry a pack full of weight. The weight in your pack equals 10lbs for every $100 you raise for 23rd Veteran (raise $400 and carry 40lbs, or raise money as a team and split the wieght). This weight represents the weight that we carry in the battle against combat stress.
The Where and When
We step off at 10am sharp Saturday morning, registration bag pick-up begins at 8am. The full length is 5 miles out and 5 miles back, with optional turn-around points along the way : ) Every so often you'll be greeted by a warming station with restrooms, coffee, hot chocolate and more! Be sure to bring your own packs, any style will do. BONUS: If you use canned goods as your pack weight, you can drop them off for the local food shelf at the finish line!
Afton State Park hasn't confirmed us using their location yet, if it doesn't work out back-up locations are within the Twin Cities area.
Costs for tickets go towards:
-Long sleeved shirt
All money raised for your pack goes directly to 23rd Veteran, a 501c3 nonprofit creating a long-term transition for veterans!
