March Rucking Challenge

Ides of March

The Challenge:
Ruck 15 Miles before the 15th of March.

Let's do this

March Challenge

The Ides of March are well known as the day Julius Cesar was assassinated, but more than that, they were notable for the Romans as a deadline for settling debts.

Well, this March, you have a debt to pay and it is 15 miles of rucking. Knock it out in one go or break it up across the month as needed. Just make sure your debt is paid before the 15th of March passes.

Failure to ruck your 15 miles on or before the Ides of March will result in a harsh penalty, an additional 15 miles will be required to earn your patch.

New Ruckers:

Break up the miles as needed across several days.

Experienced Ruckers:

Ruck all 15 miles in 1 go.

Ruck Clubs:

Plan a 15 mile ruck that circles back to the start point at miles 5 and 10 so people can join for a distance that works for them.


Pay your miles before the 15th of March. Failure to do so will result in an additional 15 miles to earn your patch.
