Join the Tufts Ruck team for Tough Ruck – Boston Marathon Ruck

The Tufts Ruck team is taking on the 26.2 mile Boston Marathon Ruck March again this year! Student Affairs is sponsoring 40 slots for students to participate by covering their registration fee. We also welcome faculty and staff to join us as well.  The event covers a 26.2 mile walk on a relatively flat course, and each participant carries a backpack weighing at least 15 pounds of food that we will donate to the New England Center and Home for Veterans.  The event sounds daunting, but all 50 Team-TUSDM participants enjoyed a great time last year filled with fun, laughter, accomplishment and a blister or two. Each finish received an official Boston Marathon Medal (see the pictures above).
