Event Description


HUSKY RUCK MEMORIAL 10K - do not contact leader. All info can be found on the Husky Ruck website.


Have you been wanting to try something new, physically challenging, and fun, and with a great group of like minded folks? This ruck might be just the thing you need. You can make it as challenging as you want, whether you are walking, hiking, or running. You can sign up individually or with a group of 4+ people.


This is a 6.87 mi route at Pineland Farms in New Gloucester, ME.  The route has a total ascent of 362.17 ft and has a maximum elevation of 299.18 ft. 


FMI including directions:


On Sunday, August 13th, 2017, members of the Maine community will be invited to participate and/or compete in a 10k military ruck through the trails of Pineland Farms in New Gloucester, ME to honor Cpl Mark Goyet of Westbrook, ME who died on June 28, 2011 after his unit came under attack by small arms fire in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. During this event, participants will strap weighted packs to their backs and ruck 10 (plus) kilometers over wide backcountry trails before confronting a rigorous O-Course which will challenge both mind and body. Shirts for this event are offered to the first 100 participants.

So what is a "RUCK"?

The definition can be as simple as walking around with a backpack on a hike or as difficult as moving fast with all your military gear, loaded for bear, over rugged terrain, infiltrating to your objective. The purpose of this event is to experience and overcome the challenges which lay before us -- much like our military service members do every day. We encourage (though do not require) race competitors to fill their packs - or rucks - with weight and endure this weight throughout the duration of this course. Do not take more than you can handle. Do not be afraid to help others as needed along the way. On this day, we will demonstrate the same Honor, Courage, and Commitment that Corporal Goyet had exemplified for us as a U.S. Marine. We do this in his honor. We do this to carry on his legacy.
