Let's do this

March Challenge

It is March. Hope you’re feeling lucky.

For this challenge you will deal yourself 5 cards. The first card you deal is the total miles you have to ruck. Add up the total of cards 2-5 and that is the weight you have to carry IN ADDITION TO your standard ruck weight.

You may carry the additional weight however you’d like (in your ruck, a sandbag, a log… whatever).

Face Cards are 10 (miles or pounds)
Aces are 15 (miles or pounds)


Beginners: You can play 5 card draw. You may exchange up to 2 card, but you have to live with whatever cards come next in the deck.

Experienced: Make it 7 Card Stud!

Clubs: Deal the cards in advance (share them with your club on social). Card 1 is miles and 2-5 is minimum weight of all coupons. Bring 1 coupon for every 2 people coming out to the club ruck.

Your “regular” ruck weight plus whatever the cards say.
