4 hrs · Ellerbe, NC ·
On Dec 7th and 8th I will be running a 24 hour ruck race to benefit our fallen Special Operations Warriors. The race will be at Coleman’s Creek Taining Facility in Ellerbe, NC.
Contestants will ruck for 24 hours with a 35lb rucksack from 10:00 on Sat. till 10:00 on Sun. There will be 4 divisions. 2 divisions will have a shooting component and 2 without…..
– Single Rucker (shooting)
– 4-man Team Relay (shooting)
– Single Rucker (non-shooting)
– 4-man Team Relay (non-shooting)
Single Ruckers will log as many miles as possible in 24 hours. Relay teams will log as many miles as possible in 24hrs by splitting up laps between the individuals.
Shooting ruckers and relay team members will stop and shoot a short pistol course of fire with bonus mileage awarded for hits. Pistols and ammo will be provided and will be kept at the stage. (No personal weapons allowed on the course).
Our current plan is to have a “bucket auction” and benefit lunch on Sunday. More details on those two events to follow.
Anyone wishing to volunteer as staff or donate items for the auction please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
There will be a need for scoring staff, shooting stage ROs, blister station staff, ATVs/UTVs, cooks, servers, printing services, and other donated services. The more that is donated…. the more goes to a great cause. Lets pull together and give back to those who gave so much. If you have sponsors or contacts in the shooting or outdoor industry, local retailers, or food service industry, please reach out to them.
Registration for single rucker and ruck teams will be up in the next couple of days.
More details to follow as they become available.

Good way to test yourself to see if you got what it takes
the SOWF Benefit Ruck Race is a 24 hour endurance challenge The event will be held at Coleman’s Creek Training Center in Ellerbe, NC on Dec 7th and 8th. A single rucker or a 4 person relay team will attempt to log the most miles in 24 hours. A 35 lb rucksack must be carried.
All proceeds benefit the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. An auction of donated prizes will take place after the race and food will be available for purchase. Proceeds from the auction, food sales, and other fundraising activities will be donated to SOWF as well. In 2017, the foundation was awarded its twelfth consecutive four-star rating from the US’s leading charity watchdog, Charity Navigator. This esteemed rating places the SOWF in the top one percent of charities rated for its financial efficiency.
There will be a shooting an non shooting option. Those who choose to shoot will attempt a short and simple course of fire each lap with pistols provided by Beretta. There are no personal firearms allowed on the course. Scores (hits on steel) from the shooting portion will be converted to distance and added to the rucker’s mileage. Shooting is not required to participate. There will be seperate awards for shooters and non shooters. Seperate portions of the course will be used for shooters and non shooters. Those who choose not to shoot will just keep rucking.
-Although there will be some ultra-competitive teams trying to win this event, it is a charity event and supposed to be fun. The atmosphere and staff will reflect that. The scoring however, will be professional, unbiased,and equitable to all participants.
-Eye and ear protection will be available for ruckers choosing to shoot. We reccomend that you bring your own.
