October Challenge

An Octoberfest Beer Maid has been known to carry as many as 12+ full steins of beer. You don’t get that kind of grip without some training. Enter: Ructoberfest.

This month we’ll get that grip warmed for up by grabbing some extra weight (kettle bell, water can, dumbbell, etc) and carry it by hand for the entire 4 mile ruck.

Difficulty can be increased as outlined below. Additional mileage can be added if you’re into that sort of thing.

Serious Rucker: Grab a weight for each hand.
Regular Ruckers: Just 1 weight.
Newbie Rucker: Share the weight with a friend.

Ruck Club: Grab a bunch of weights and make it work.

Rucker’s Choice.

Optional Finisher:
Grab a beer (or whatever) with a friend.
