GORUCK

Lethbridge Sports and Social Club - GORUCK
GORUCK was founded by Jason McCarthy, a Green Beret, with the goal of building gear that could survive both in Baghdad and New York City. 
Besides making amazing gear that can withstand 400 lbs and anything you want to throw at it, they lead events that are challenging but are life changing.
Patrick completed the GORUCK Tough Challenge in Calgary (June 2016) and has been compelled to to another Tough event ever since.

We are so thrilled to partner with GORUCK and to become the first  GORUCK Firebase in Alberta, Canada!

 

First ... RUCKING

Rucking, simply put, is walking with a weighted rucksack. Rucking has proven to have many benefits including burning up to 3 times as many calories than walking. Men's Heath wrote a great general article about rucking that I encourage anyone who in interested in rucking to check out.

If you want want to get your feet wet and start rucking, join other members of Lethbridge Sports and Social Club for regular rucks in Lethbridge.

Ruck 5k with us on these dates

October 17 - Rucking - Bull Trail Park 7 p.m.

October 25 - Rucking - Bull Trail Park 7 p.m.

 

New to Rucking? Here are the suggested weight to add to your rucksack.

Beginner: If you are under 150 lbs., carry a 10 LB weight and if you are over 150 lbs. carry 20.

IntermediateIf you are under 150 lbs., carry a 20 LB weight and if you are over 150 lbs. carry 30.

 

We highly recommend a weighted plate that is flat against your back, but not everyone has a weight plate, so get creative and load up your rucksack.

Next ... THE CHALLENGE

Maybe you've rucked with us for a while OR you've done all the mud races out there and you are looking for the next endurance event to challenge you. GORUCK Challenges will put you to the test. Are you game?

 

The hardest part is signing-up! Sign up for the challenge and take the mud races to the next level! This may be one of the most challenging experiences you put yourself through, but the rewards when you finish are priceless.

GORUCK - LIGHT

 

"Maybe you’re still not sure about GORUCK yet but you want to do something because everyone tells you how great the people are and that it’s worth it. They’re right by the way and welcome to GORUCK Light. It means lighter vibe, lighter loads and less time commitment, which means more time to party with your class after you’re done. Fun fact: never sign up and you’ll never know. But the average completion rate of those who show up is 100%. If you can do a 5K, you can earn the GORUCK Light patch."
