April Rucking Challenge

Double Trouble

The Challenge:
Ruck 1 Mile Fast, 1 Mile Heavy, 1 Mile Faster, 1 Mile Heavier.

Let's do this

April Challenge

We’ve all got the ability to push a little faster and go a little heavier, right? Time to find out!

For this challenge you will: 

Mile 1 – Ruck at your normal ruck weight pushing your pace faster than normal.

Mile 2 –  Add weight either in your ruck or with something like a sandbag. Complete the mile without setting down the additional weight.

Mile 3 – Drop back to your normal rucking weight and finish the mile faster than mile 1.

Mile 4 Load up heavier than mile two. Ruck the final mile without dropping the weight.

Dropping the weight and/or not beating your time is a fail. You must reattempt the challenge.


Beginners: You can do miles 1+2 and 3+4 on different days.

Experienced: As written.

Crazy Folk: Ruck in this order – Mile 2, 1, 4, 3.

Clubs: This challenge will best be done at a track or somewhere people can push themselves as individuals OR set team pace and weight goals.

Normal weight in the ruck. Additional weight for miles 2 & 4.
