Ruck It Walk: Gilroy to Morgan Hill and Back!

May 27, 7:00 am - 9:00 am

Join a local fundraiser on Saturday, December 8 (rain or shine) and ruck from Gilroy to Morgan Hill and back to benefit the Gilroy Veterans Hall Capital Campaign Fund.

What’s a ruck? It’s a military term for getting your gear from A to B in a backpack and typically weighs 50+ pounds.

We will be starting at the Gilroy Sports Park and ruck to the CRC in Morgan Hill for lunch (provided for you) before heading back to Gilroy. The route is 10.4 miles one way (20.8 round trip) so load up your pack to your desired weight and hit the pavement.

Rest stops will be placed along the course and will also offer physical challenges designed to be completed with your pack on.

Looking for your next fitness challenge? Think your cardio is good or are you looking to improve it?

Our ‘Getting to Know You 95037’ member Caryn is organizing this local event. We thought some of you might like this challenge. If you have questions, please call Caryn:[masked] or email: [masked]
