GORUCK Kill That 5K 2015

Mylo Obstacle Fitness
5415 McKinney Falls Pkwy, ATX 78744
Saturday, June 13th  
4:30 pm start time
Registration here! 

You pick the weight. Anything more than nothing is rucking as long as you’re having fun. Think of it as social fitness. Just don’t overthink it. We also have Competitive Weight Classes for you racin' types.

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.

By the way, the average purse weighs 47 lbs full lol and the average bookbag more than that. Try 15 or 20 lbs in a ruck for a 5K then drink your free beer in Backyard Americana with the best people ever.
