Team "What The Ruck?" is comprised of Jeff Crowley, Katelyn Crowley, Joe Clinton and Simon Towers. On Sunday, April 19th, they will walk a 26.2 mile/ marathon-length course, carrying weighted rucks that also hold the names of fallen comrades. It's not just about walking the course, this team will carry rucksacks weighing as much as 35 pounds on their backs, and must commit to raising a minimum of $450.
On April 15, 2013, the Tough Ruckers 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.
