UPDATE: Tough Ruck 2020 is SOLD OUT! 

Thank you for your interest in Tough Ruck 2020. We are overwhelmed by the outpouring of support for those who want to honor our fallen military and first responders. Due to unprecedented demand for this year’s event, the 1000 available bibs have sold out. We would love to have you all participate but unfortunately we have already reached the maximum capacity for the event. We hope to have you join us at Tough Ruck 2021. If you would like to still be involved we would love to have you join our volunteer crew. //www.militaryfriends.org/getinvolved/tough-ruck-volunteer/
