About This Activity
Kill That 5K Fun Ruckin' and a good ol' Americana kind of vibe Here's the deal:
You wear a ruck aka backpack, and you pick the weight.
Rucking makes you tough.
Ruckers encourage each other.
Nobody rucks alone.
Most 5Ks are lame cause they start too early in the morning and you don't meet anyone and you eat a banana and you leave. We believe Beer>Bananas so GORUCK 5Ks start in the late afternoon where you and your friends ruck to free beers and the greatest after-party in the history of 5Ks.
GORUCK is when you GO with your RUCK on your back and that's rucking. GORUCK as a company has produced over 2,000 Events to date, globally. Kill That 5K is our introduction to the sport of rucking.
Gear at the GORUCK PX (Post Exchange) GORUCK has been building the world's toughest, most functional rucking gear since our founding in 2008. It's even a little known secret that we started out just a gear company, before we introducted Events or the sport of rucking. All GORUCK built gear is Built in the USA and comes with our Scars Lifetime Guarantee, so Ruck Hard.
The GORUCK PX (Gear store) will be on-site for all Racin' Events and the night before at Beer&Gear, a GORUCK style packet pick-up that's not lame like they usually are. Our kick-ass GORUCK-built Gear will be discounted up to 20% (additional 5% for active duty military and LEO's with ID) at the Beer&Gear Packet Pickup and at the Kill That 5K event.
The Patch You Earn Cross the finish line and you've earned the GORUCK Kill That 5K patch. The arrowhead takes inspiration from Special Forces insignias and represents the accomplishment of completing a rucking event, and of encouraging others to do the same. Wear it with pride.
The Weight in Your Ruck Makes it Rucking You pick the weight. Think of it as social fitness. Just don't overthink it.
Competitive Classes at Kill That 5K If you wanna compete to get to the beers sooner, that's cool, too. It's called ruck racin' and no bananas await but prizes do, in addition to the free beer. There are competitive classes. It's called ruck racin' and no bananas await but special patches and prizes do, in addition to the free beer.

Your participation in the greatest after-party any 5K has ever seen
Race Timing*: This is not a chipped event. Chips don't let you race the person next to you, they force you to race against a clock and racing against a clock is not real ruck racin'. Real Ruck Racin' is this: your competitive class lines up together and may the fastest rucker win. Cross the finish line first, you're first place - it's that simple. You get your free beer first and you get the biggest prize. Just remember to keep it classy at the greatest after-party any 5K has ever seen with your 1st place patch on. *There will be a clock onsite, visible to all. Or just ignore it and have fun.
