WHAT IS A RUCK RUN?
Rucking" can be thought of as extreme hiking / trekking. It involves carrying heavy weight in a backpack (ruck) and moving as quickly as possible.
WHAT IS AN HONOR RUNNER?
An honor runner is like a phantom runner, where you want to support the cause but do not or cannot personally run. But instead, your entry fee will pay for a soldier to run the race who may otherwise not be able to for financial reasons. BOTH THE HONOR RUNNER AND THE SOLDIER GET SWAG!
Course will be entirely contained within the Blankets Creek Trail System
