(Archive) Ft. Fisher Ruck


SUNDAY 1/29/17

115 N 2nd St. Wilmington. NC. at 0500


Here is the pertinent information for the Ft Fisher Ruck this weekend. Wreck-It-Ralph and Busted Grill have volunteered to drive. Right now we have a count of 16 Pax. We want more! If you are even slightly considering doing this, you need to!  As for those who wanted to do half of the Ruck, the ideal place to stop and be picked up would be on River Rd around the new River Lights Development.

In a perfect world we will finish around 3:30pm. Look for a final email on Friday confirming transportation and aid stations. This is a great event and I am confident any Pax that wants to, can do it!

We will meet at Ironclad Brewery (115 N 2nd St, Wilmington, NC 28401) at 0500 on Sunday.Ruck participants and their gear will be shuttled to Ft. Fisher State Recreation Area. Ruck officially begins at 0600, finishing at Ironclad Brewery in downtown Wilmington.
