Rucking is simply the act of walking a distance with a weighted backpack (aka a ruck). The mission of Ruck HNL is simple: get some exercise, fight mental illness in veterans and civilians alike, and partner with veteran oriented charities. Our ruck events vary in their distance and difficulty but all ages, faces, and abilities are always welcome. Most of our events are kid and dog friendly! Rucking is perfect for folks who can’t run due to physical limitations or people who don’t run because it can suck. Since Ruck HNL was formed, we have raised thousands of dollars and teamed up with veterans’ organizations like The American Legion, Operation Homefront, Carry the Fallen, Wounded Warrior Project, and Healing4Heroes. Come out and try a ruck. You’ll love it!
