Time for our Sunday morning rucksack march, we’ll warm up with quick exercises and a stretch and then hit the trail for a 5-mile march over varied or uneven terrain. Make sure that ruck fits correctly and the same for your boots and socks. You can reference some of our earlier pieces for any information on those.

Try to push as hard as you can without running. Do the best that you can. And remember to drink plenty of water on the course, and don’t let yourself get dehydrated.
