Rucking is the action of walking with weight on your back. It’s a low-impact and accessible form of exercise based on military marches. You’ve probably done it and haven’t even been aware – carrying a bag of books to school, commuting, even bringing in the groceries – it’s just walking with additional weight. It’s simple to do – all you need is a backpack and some form of weight. First aid stations will be at each of the Fire Stations, as well as a roving medical unit. There will be water stations available throughout the route.
