crossfit Cleveland Goruck rucking

We’re big fans of Rucking. What is it and how do I do it?

We’re hosting rucking events in 2021 on the 3rd Saturday of every month, so please consider joining in the fun.

All rucks begin and end at CrossFit Cleveland’s parking lot located at 1211 Allen Court in Rocky River, OH. 44116. These ruck events are open to everyone, members and non-members, at no cost.  Show up and be ready to depart on time.  Please use the “RSVP to Class” button on your screen and select the Ruck Event from the list of classes.  Ignore the “No-Show” fee message, that does not apply to our free Ruck Events.

Saturday September 18, 2021 – 6-Miler departing at 10:30am

Saturday October 2, 2021 – Half  Marathon departing at 9:30am

We’ve been rucking for years at CrossFit Cleveland, often as a group cool-down or AfterWOD activity.  We’ve also had a large group of our member participate in a Rucking Half-Marathon and a 20-Mile Ruck Event a few years ago.  2020 brought our first annual Turkey Ruck!

We have a few extra backpacks and rucksacks at the gym you can borrow, before deciding to buy or make one of your own.

The following information, including all pictures, is not ours, it’s taken directly from a recent email from the HQ of Rucking, Goruck, LLC.  All the links will lead you to their website.  This information was too good not to share.



RUCK•ING [VERB] // Walking with a weighted rucksack (aka backpack). It implies action, energy, and purpose. Rucking requires strength, endurance, and character — and builds it, too.

We’ve seen plenty of people over the years focus on what they can’t do, or can’t do yet, as a reason to do nothing. The trick is to not plan to do everything all at once, just get moving and see where it leads.
MILITARY ROOTS Green Berets are well versed in shouldering heavy rucks through cities, mountains, jungles and deserts, in war and in peace.
HEALTH & SCIENCE  Do you want to… Be more active? Burn more calories? Get stronger? Improve your posture? Have a healthier heart?
RUCKING AT GORUCK EVENTS GORUCK’s Special Forces Cadre have led thousands of rucking events since 2010.
“Running Sucks.” Love, Monster
