FAQ & Prep
What is a ruck?
Rucking is the act of walking with weight on your back. Our ruck is geared towards endurance and is intended to test your limits. 50FtF does not mandate a set weight for participants. It's your decision on how much to carry. Choose wisely!
Why do we ruck?
We ruck to raise awareness for our mission, build community, and as a tribute to those who have gone before us.
What can I expect?
We always end the ruck tired, dirty, and sore. Chafing and blisters happen. However, you will meet incredible people, make meaningful connections, and push yourself in ways you never imagined.
What do you recommend for beginners?
- Camelbacks or small backpacks are great for beginners. Avoid drawstring bags as they will cut into your shoulders.
- Start with our 10 mile ruck and see how it goes. Walk what you can with us, even if it's a mile or two!
- Season your feet as best you can.
- Eat and hydrate constantly on the ruck.
- Use our packing list.
