5K Run and GORUCK Light Challenge with Veterans@State

The Department of State Veterans group invites you to join us in some physical team building challenges. Summer 2015 we are getting out and active. Join us and experience the camaraderie that accompanies the completion of team based physical events. Details for the two events are listed below. We encourage interested parties to sign up individually to secure your place. A Veterans@state forum will be provided to coordinate pre-race and post-race activities.
Non-Veterans, families and friends welcome to join!

Start Point: Bull Run Park
7700 Bull Run Dr., Centreville, VA 20121
Participants or “Ruckers” of all ages and abilities are welcome. Ruck as fast as you can or as slow as you want, this isn’t about personal records – it’s about getting active and having fun with family and friends.
Most 5K’s start too early in the morning and you don’t meet anyone new. GORUCK 5K’s start in the afternoon where you and your friends ruck with some of the best people you can meet.
** Rucking is a walking or jogging exercise while wearing a backpack or other “rucksack” to carry supplies/weight for a set distance.

Start Point: TBA at least one week from event
4-5 hours, 7-10 miles
GORUCK Light Challenge = Fun Rucking while tackling team challenges. Average completion rate: 100%
Maybe you’re still not sure about GORUCK, but you want to do something. GORUCK Light is an easy to accomplish team relay. It’s a lighter vibe, lighter loads and less time commitment, which means more time to socialize with your class after you’re done.
The average completion rate of those who show up is 100%. If you can do a 5K, you can do a GORUCK Light Challenge.
For any questions on the events, please feel free to contact the Veterans@state Special Events Coordinator, Jared Sarkis, at sarkisjs@state.gov. If you are interested in joining the Veterans at State EAG or would like more information, please visit our SharePoint site: Veterans@State
