The October Anti-Virtual Ruck Challenge entitled "Marching for Veterans" will benefit the United War Veterans Council. The UWVC's mission is to honor and serve America's veterans.
Participants can pledge to march 25, 50, 75 or 100 miles. Ruck load is at your discretion. "Anti-virtual" means that you can ruck alone though rucking as a group is preferred and encouraged. We recommend that you be creative and incorporate a military element to your rucking. This can include: pace, ruck load, route, additional group weights aka coupons and destinations such as historical military landmarks.
25 and 50 milers will earn a ruck patch.
75 milers will earn a ruck patch and have their name recognized plus the opportunity to honor a veteran in the Veterans Day edition of the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS.
100 milers will earn a ruck patch and limited edition t-shirt and have their name recognized plus the opportunity to honor a veteran in the Veterans Day edition of the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS.
IMPORTANT - The deadline to be recognized in the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS is October 31. If you are pledging 75 or 100 miles, honor a veteran in the New York Daily News here: https://forms.gle/mJRdiuAtURhy34wZ7
