July Rucking Challenge

Roosevelt Ruck

The Challenge:
Ruck 84 minutes carrying a log.

Let's do this

July Challenge

Hands down, one of America’s toughest presidents is Theodore Roosevelt. This July we’ll honor the Rough Rider president by heeding his words to “speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far.” 

Indeed, you will go far. You’ll carry a big stick (aka, a log) for 84 minutes.

Why 84 minutes? Because that’s how long the speech was that he gave in 1912 after being shot. In the chest.

Channel your inner Roosevelt, grab a log, and celebrate American grit and determination.


Beginners: Make it a smaller log or share the log with a friend. 

Experienced: Don’t skimp on the log. Make Roosevelt proud.

Clubs: Lots of people + Lots of Logs = Awesomness.
