UPDATE: July 2020
Covid-19 cancelled the ruck in April and again in September, however, I am still participating in the recently announced Virtual Tough Ruck event .
On Sunday September 13, 2020, I will #ruckon and complete a 26.2 mile course of my choosing and continue to #honorthefallen.
This event is personal to me and I am proud to be one of the 1,000 elite ruckers who will have the chance to continue what was started earlier this year.
I am truly humbled and I look forward to September 13th.
I just registered for my first Tough Ruck 26.2 scheduled for April 19, 2020! While this is my third time rucking 26.2 miles, this Tough Ruck sponsored by the BAA/Boston Marathon. Tough Ruckers have 9 hours to complete the course to earn an official 2020 Boston Marathon finisher medal.
Please help me reach my fundraising goal of $950.00 for Military Friends Foundation.
Tough Ruck 26.2 is group of military and civilians whose sole purpose is to Ruck in honor and in memory of our Fallen Service Members, Police, Firefighters and EMTs, while raising funds to support military families in times of need. We will walk a 26.2 mile certified course with our Rucks and carry the names of our Fallen comrades with us.
On April 15, 2013, the Tough Rucker were at the finish line of the Boston Marathon and joined the first responders to help those that were injured by the horrific blasts. They truly exemplify the best of what our Nation is. Today the Ruck happens the Sunday before Boston Marathon Monday in Concord, Massachusetts on the original trails of the Revolutionary War. Tough Ruck is the only Ruck march partnered with the Boston Marathon and finishers are awarded the official Boston Marathon Medals and receive recognition from the Boston Athletic Association. Military Friends Foundation is the official charity of Tough Ruck.
