To compete in the Ruck competition each participant will have a rucksack with the following weight: if you are under 150 lbs, carry 10 lb and if you are over 150 lbs, carry 20 lbs. Weight will be verified at finish for Top Finishers. The fastest participant carrying a rucksack in the 5K and 10K will receive a special award. Participants competing with a ruck are still eligible for age group awards. We encourage participants to carry non-perishable food items in your ruck sack to donate to a food drive after the race. We donate all food to the Shepherd of Hope Food Pantry, a food pantry run by Faith Lutheran Church.
We have volunteer opportunities starting the week before the race and leading up to race morning available. And, guess, what? You can still run the race & volunteer! Coming to cheer on the races but want to help? Sign up to be a course monitor and make sure those turkeys don't make a wrong turn! There is lots to set up before the race and we could use your help. If you are interested, please fill out our volunteer form online.
