Ruck 22 – Emerald Coast Honor Games

9:30 AM - 12:00 PM CST

4608 Legendary Marina Dr, Destin, FL 32541

According to common, well known, figures, each day approximately 22 US Veterans commit suicide. 22!  Seriously. 1 is an outrage and a tragedy. Short of suicide, our brave men and women (military and first responders) across the nation and abroad are STRUGGLING with symptoms related to PTSD and other byproducts from defending the front lines.


 It is that spirit, in which, the Emerald Coast Honor Games presents the 3RD annual “Ruck 22.” This is an honorary ruck/march/walk in which the entire community, children included (with parents present) are invited out to join, mingle, march, and go down range with real soldiers to complete 22 laps around the track at Destin Middle School.

 

New this year, we are also featuring the "Ruck 22 Challenge." Test your grit and complete all 22 tasks for time. This is open to all ages and abilities. Movements will include running, Burpees, jumping, sit-ups, and other common movements that can be adjusted to accommodate ANY fitness level or movement limitations. You decide...do the traditional 22 laps OR the 22 challenge.
