2020 Veterans Day 10 K Ruck March
Hosted by Rucks On Main
Rucks On Main is a non-profit organization that will host a military-themed ruck march twice a year at the Santa Fe Plaza in downtown Temple, Texas.
This event is open to eveyone who wishes to participate. Participants can register in advance @ www.rucksonmain.org
, or in-person on the day of the event (credit card only). Online registration will be $37, and will increase to $55 one month before the event, and day of event. We cannot guarantee t-shirts, challenge coins, or sponsor logo placement on t-shirts if you register within 30 days of event. Make sure to register early!
For the Veterans Day ruck march everyone will place a picture of their favorite Veteran on their ruck sack / backpack. Ruckers will fill their rucksacks / backpacks with non-perishable food items (up tp 40lbs) that will be donated to charitable food organizations once they cross the finish line.
All participants will receive a t-shirt and a beer wristband when they check in between 7:30am – 9am. At 9am ruck marchers will step off to complete a 6-mile ruck through downtown Temple and historic neighborhoods in North Temple. Everyone who crosses the finish line will receive a challenge coin and a free beer (Must be 21) for completing the ruck march.
After completing the ruck march, we will place all of the ruck sacks / backpacks on the Santa Fe Plaza grass area for a photo op. Afterwards, ruckers may gather to enjoy live music, food trucks, and 1 locally-brewed craft beer (must show ID and wrist band for beer).
