August Rucking Challenge

"The Mile"

The Challenge:
Load up as heavy as possible. Ruck 1 mile. Easy right? Nope.

Let's do this

August Challenge

If you do this challenge correctly, it will be forever etched in your soul as “The Mile.”

Load up as heavy as possible and ruck 1 mile. While stopping is allowed, you may not put down your ruck or any additional coupons you’re carrying. If you set down the weight, you must restart your attempt.

If you finish the mile and think, “That wasn’t so bad,” you did it wrong. Try again.

A note of caution: This challenge is intended to push you, but not break you. If you feel that your weight is so heavy that you risk injury, don’t do it.

Recommended Weight:

Really, really heavy.

Recommended Distance:
Advanced: 1 mile.
Intermediate1 mile.
Newbies1 mile.
