Distance

Oh, this summer
We won't regret what we cannot know
Oh, they can lift the roof right off of this house
Yeah they can cancel all our shows
We'll make a break for the bridge after raiding the fridge
Pick up your friends in Baltimore
My parade of ships and a tape full of hiss
And we'll forget what came before

Lyrics by Superchunk

Summer is here and we don’t ever want it to end. The days are longer, routines get upended, the pace of humanity slows just enough to enjoy life, and best of all, outside is in.

Last summer, do-it-yourself quarantine Star Courses were all the rage for people to do solo or within their pods. Thousands of you showed up to ruck and submitted Hit Lists to cities from all over the world - thank you!

Now you can do an Endless Summer Star Course and earn a patch - you choose between a 12 miler or any Sprint distance (5k/10k/15k) using our ready-made hit lists - this time with friends. Grab your sunglasses and ruck whatever city you find yourself in this summer.

How It Works

STEP 1: Download the hit list for your city.

DOWNLOAD HERE. Choose from 5k, 10k, 15k or 12 Miles. If your city doesn't have a hit list, create your own. Pick the waypoints for a 12 miler (scaling down the mileage to one of the shorter distances above is easy to do on your own), fill out this form and we will add it to the public folder as soon as possible so that others can complete it too.

STEP 2: Get a rucksack (or any backpack) and some weight.

10 lbs if you weigh under 150 lbs and 20 lbs if you weigh over 150 lbs or want more of a challenge. Check out Ruck Plates, the best weight to ruck.

STEP 3: Plot your route and go to the waypoints.

Take a picture at each for more fun. Share with us on social @goruck for bragging rights too.

STEP 4: If you are the goal-setting type, make it to all of the waypoints in the following prescribed time limits:

12 miler - 5 hrs

Sprint distances: 5k - 2.5 hrs; 10k - 3 hrs; 15k - 3.5 hrs

Tips For Staying Safe:

  • Bring a buddy or three, especially if they are 4-legged friends. If you're rucking alone, go out during daylight hours and avoid any areas that could be dangerous.
  • Bring your cell phone in case of emergency.
  • If a waypoint is a location (park or beach or building) that is currently closed, pick a new spot nearby - do not break any laws or unnecessarily tax law enforcement now or ever.
  • Bring plenty of water and snacks to stay hydrated and energized.

Good luck and get rucking! Check out the Star Course Hit lists here.
