Ruck with the Pack will be held at Wake Med Soccer Park in Cary on 22 April 2017.
Ruck with the Pack is an annual 5K/10K race held by the NC State Army ROTC program in order to raise money for a veteran’s non-profit “Stand By the Wounded.” SBW partners with The Comeback Initiative to provide the same level of treatment and rehabilitation as professional athletes to our nation’s military, veterans, and first responders at the Federal, State, and Local level. Since its creation in 2010, SBW has helped to restore the lives of over 400 servicemen by bridging the gap and providing these men and women with a level treatment that would be otherwise unattainable. For more details please look at "More About Our Partner" section below.
Our events include a competitive 10k run, a competitive 10k weighted run called the Wolfpack Challenge, and a 5k fun run that can be completed at leisure. Only the run times for the competitive events will be recorded, and the fastest three runners will be recognized in addition to recieving some prizes. Please see our "Events" page for more details.
There will be snacks and water at the start point in addition to a water station at the halfway point. Parking is available at any of the parking lots on site, but we kindly ask that you respect Wake Med's policies and not use any of the athletic fields for any reason. Bathrooms are located at Building D by the main stadium.
