Ruck for our Fallen @ Ogunquit Beach

Ruck for our Fallen @ Ogunquit Beach | Ogunquit | Maine | United States

We’re headed back to where it all started 10 years ago! Join our military, veterans, police, fire, emt’s & the families of our fallen on Saturday, October 20th at Noon on beautiful Ogunquit Beach for an event you’ll never forget!

This incredible event takes place during the Ogunguit Chamber of Commerce’s 15th Annual OgunquitFest Weekend so they’ll be thousands on hand to watch our event! We’ve also partnered up with GoRuck if you’re looking for any gear you might need for the event!

The Ruck for our Fallen is a military-style ruck event which will take place on Ogunquit Beach. This event is to honor ALL of Maine’s Fallen Heroes and give their families a unique bonding experience.

We’re wicked excited to announce that registration for the 2018 Ruck for our Fallen is Open! We have (3) fitness levels so there is something for everyone to enjoy! Slick (Light), Tactical (not so easy), Heavy (where the fun starts!) Get your team together & challenge the others! We’re expecting people from near & far for this first of its kind annual event for our fallen heroes & their families. We look forward to seeing you on Oct 20th! ♥ #MHOFH #MGSFANF #ForThem http://ruckforourfallen.com

This event has something for every fitness level! Slick is actually a 5K walk & minimal pushups & situps at the end. It’s light and fairly easy!

This event is designed as an adult competition. Children under the age of 12 may participate at no cost. They will not be given a t-shirt at the end of the ruck. They will be given awards suitable for children. We’re not giving away free t-shirts. We hope you can understand that this is a charity event.

Team Ruck Competition: The key to this event is to do it as a team. We suggest a team of 4. 6 & 8 members. Team rucks help raise money for a good cause. They also build community relations and help us all share our love for one another.

Individual registrations are also welcome!
