GORUCK Rucking World Championship



We just heard the news about a brand new event being held by GORUCK.

If you're a fan of rucking challenges, this might be right up your alley. It could be time to dust off your best rucksack, get in some training, and get prepared for competition.

Here's What We Know About the World Championship of Rucking


  • When: It'll be held on November 20, 2020. That means you have over a year to train, from the time of this writing.

  • Where: Washington, DC sounds like an awesome backdrop and host city to us!

  • A Sweet Bonus: For those completing registration prior to August 20, 2020, you will receive a free rucksack; the GORUCK Speed Rucker!

  • What: 50 miles (or more) in under 20 hours. That's a nice pace, if we do say so ourselves!

  • Weight Requirements: Since rucking means carrying weight while moving, men will be carrying 30lbs., and women will be carrying 20lbs.

  • Divisions/Categories: There are 3 divisions; Men, Women, and the Teams Open

  • Cash Money: There will be prizes! That goes for each division. The first place winner will bring home $3,500. Second place will earn $1,000. And, third place for each division will find themselves with an additional $500.

  • Patches: We all love those earned GORUCK patches. And, the GORUCK Rucking World Championship will not be without. There will be special podium patches for those who finish in the Top 3 in each division, and those finishing under the 20-hour cutoff will also receive patches.

  • Qualifying Standards: This isn't for everyone! There will be qualifying minimums that must be met. You must show proof of your having completed a 50-Mile Star course in under 20 hours, or proof that you have completed a traditional marathon in less than 4 hours.

  • Rules, Required Items, and Recommended Items: There are rules, requirements, and suggestions for those who will be participating. We recommend visiting the GORUCK Events page to get all of the detail on the GORUCK Rucking World Championship.


Best of Luck (and Training) to You!



For those qualifying for, and who are up to the challenge, we wish you the best! If you don't yet have the gear you need, check out our best rucksack page. We recommend the GORUCK GR1 for this event!
