15K Ruck Division

Our 2022 15K race once again has a ruck division too! Signing up for the ruck means you will be carrying a backpack or a rucksack that has a dry weight of 20-30 lbs (not counting water or food carried during the race). No weight vests are allowed.  All finishers will also receive a custom Badger rucking patch!
The ruck division starts at the same time as the regular 15K and follows all the same rules, and costs the same too (please also read the 15K tab for further info and rules).  
Ruck results will be tracked separately from the regular 15K race.
The ruck participants have the option of carrying their 20-30 lbs of dry weight as non-perishable food (cans, boxes, etc.).  At the finish line of the 15K the rucker can then empty their load of food into a bin. That food will then be donated to our local food bank!  How's that for an awesome idea??
