What’s a Ruck? Just a walk. Many folks will add a backpack. Crazy folks fill the backpack with heavy weights.
Why Ruck? Because walking is good for us. Especially during a pandemic, when so many activities have been banned or cancelled, we can always walk.
When: Sunday March 28th. If there’s enough interest, we’ll ruck on the last Sunday of every month. We’ll depart at 11am, and we should return to the post by noon.
Where: Meet at Post 29. For our first ruck, we’ll simply walk to the National Cemetery, about a mile from the post. We’ll stroll through the cemetery and pay homage to those buried there, then we’ll hike back to the post. Easy. Even your kids and grandkids can do it. Weather permitting.
Wait, why again? Because we can. Because we want to always challenge ourselves. You will get in shape. Walking improves your physical and mental health. If we ruck as a group, we build camaraderie and community. Let’s enjoy the outdoors, and some sunshine.
