CARRIE COMPLETES THE TOUGH RUCK 2014

Approximately 1000 soldiers (and Mistress Carrie from WAAF), from over 30 states, making up over 20 teams, have registered for the Tough Ruck. A ruck or Rucksack, is the military issued "backpack" that soldiers wear, it holds supplies, weapons, and everything else that a soldier would need while deployed. These Rucks can weigh over 100 pounds, however weights differ depending on missions etc. The Tough Ruckers will be carrying rucks that weigh a minimum of 40 pounds. Each Tough Rucker, is carrying the Ruck of a military member or members that is no longer here to carry it themselves. Ruckers dedicate their ruck, and wear a yellow ribbon with the name of the person that they are rucking in honor of.

The Tough Ruck began at 7am on Saturday, April 19th, 2014 at the Old North Bridge in Concord Massachusetts and took place along the historic Battle Road Trail. Battle Road Trail is where the historic start of the American Revolution took place, on April 19, 1775. The militia gave birth to the Massachusetts National Guard, and many of the ruckers can trace their military lineage back to those militia forces.

The Tough Ruckers will be presented with Boston Marathon Finishers Medallions and BAA Finishers certificates upon completion of the Tough Ruck!
