100 Ruckin Mile Challenge: October 2015

Join  ruckin maniacs in the 100 Ruckin Mile Challenge!

It’s baaaack!

A huge part of any challenge is always sharing your progress and pitfalls with the community and encouraging others to persevere.

Welcome to the second edition of the 100 Ruckin Mile Challenge. This goal of this challenge is to ruck with bricks for the month of October and to reach a minimum total of 100 miles by the end of the month. If you never rucked with a bag of bricks before, it will take some getting used to, but trust me it will grow on you. By the time the Challenge is over, you’ll wonder what’s missing when you leave the house without your ruck. The 100 Ruckin Mile Challenge is not a race, it’s a challenge. The goal is to finish – and finishing is truly epic.

The Rules:

  1. How: You may accrue miles by running and/or walking.
  2. Limits: Borrowing from GORUCK Challenge, we’ll need to set some parameters by weight as follows: 150 pounds or over, a minimum of three bricks or 15 pounds must be carried in each ruck; less than 150 pounds: a minimum of two bricks or ten pounds must be carried in each ruck. Note: GRC requires 6 bricks and 5 bricks respectively.
  3. Accountability: to be eligible for prizes, you must record your miles on the daily mileage tracker form here. Mileage must be submitted by 11:59 PM on the day you rucked in order to be counted towards your total.
  4. Time: You have until October 31 at 11:59 pm to complete the 100 Ruckin Mile Challenge and earn your patch.
  5. Winners: First to 100 miles – male/female + two (2) random winners.
  6. Cost: Free + patch (optional, see below).
  7. Registration: Register here. Registration will close on Sunday, October 7.
  8. Results: I’ll post results regularly on the Mud Run Maniac Facebook Wall and here →
Submit your daily mileage here!

Camaraderie: #ruckahundy

A huge part of any challenge is always sharing your progress and pitfalls with the community and encouraging others to persevere. All participants are strongly encouraged to post their progress on the Mud Run Maniac Facebook Wall and/or via Twitter with #ruckahundy.

What you get for completing the Challenge…

In addition to the pride an glory of completing something truly epic, all participants who complete the 100 Ruckin Mile Challenge will be eligible to purchase an official patch. Patches are 3×2 with velcro backing and will fit very nicely on all your GORUCK gear! Cost will be $5 for pre-orders through October 15, then $10 thereafter. Pre-order yours today →

What the winners get…

The first male and female to complete 100 ruckin miles will each receive one (1) free Buddy pass to any GORUCK Challenge event. This is essentially a buy-one-get-one deal where you sign-up for any GORUCK Challenge and you get your friend in for free. That’s up to $160 value, but for those of us who’ve completed a Challenge already, we think this deal is priceless! To be eligible for prizes you must track your daily mileage on the mileage tracker form here →

More goodies from GORUCK!

Not only will the first male and female to ruck 100 miles win a Buddy Pass to a GORUCK Challenge event, on November 1, I will select two random winners (one male/one female) from all participants who continue to ruck throughout the month of October.

GORUCK ChallengeAbout our sponsor:

The GORUCK Challenge is a positive extension of GORUCK’s goal to bring people together: miltary/non-military, men/women, young/old. Our Special Operations Cadre teach every class what a team feels like, how to stay cool under stress, and why camaraderie in Special Forces is so high. In our estimation, people are good, and capable of much more when they work together, for each other. To learn about Mud Run Maniac’s GORUCK Challenge experience, go here →

        I did, and I appreciate having won the Random drawing for the GORUCK Buddy Pass (I’m Philip Glorioso)

        Still haven’t heard anything from GORUCK, but i imagine they have been pretty busy with product launch, and the new Challenge options.

    Signed up, on my way to 100 miles

    Did 4.6 miles on 10/2 but time constraint is eastern time. Should I add the 4.6 on to tomorrows total?

  • Taiji Tamura

    Is the page going to be updated soon? I’m only seeing stuff from the 23rd.

  • Taiji Tamura

    Here is hoping all is okay for those of you on the east coast dealing with Sandy’s aftermath. Hang in there.

    Is there going to be a 2013 100 mile challenge? I haven’t heard anything from this site in a while–is it still active?
