July Rucking Challenge

Delaware Dash

The Challenge:
Get soaking wet and go for a 10 mile ruck.

Let's do this

July Challenge

On the night of December 25-26, 1776, General George Washington led a daring and risky crossing of the ice-filled Delaware River with 2,400 Continental Army soldiers. This surprise maneuver aimed to launch a decisive attack against Hessian forces stationed in Trenton, New Jersey, located 10 miles south. Despite harsh weather conditions, the operation was successful, resulting in a crucial victory that boosted American morale and reinvigorated the Revolutionary cause and marked a turning point in the fight for independence.

The Challenge:

Get soaking wet (the rainy river crossing) and go for a 10 mile ruck (the distance of the march from the river to Trenton).


20-30 Pounds.

Advance Weight:

The average weight of a rucksack in the Revolutionary War is reported to be 60-80 pounds. This would be a really good challenge. 

10 Miles. Must start the ruck soaking wet.

Ruck Clubs:
Get the club together and perform the challenge.
