Twice a year Rucks On Main will host a military-themed ruck march at the Santa Fe Plaza in downtown Temple, Texas to honor our Veterans and The Fallen. This ruck march is open to everyone. On Memorial & Veterans Day weekends, marchers will fill their rucksacks with UP TO 40lbs of non-perishable food items to be donated to charitable organizations. Marchers will complete a 6-mile route through downtown and historic neighborhoods in north Temple. Before the ruck march each participant will receive a t-shirt and upon completion each participant will receive a challenge coin. Participants can register online, or in-person on the day of the event. Participants are not guaranteed a t-shirt or a coin if they register 30 days before the event. After completing the ruck march, marchers will gather at the Santa Fe Plaza to enjoy free food for participants, locally-brewed craft beer, and camaraderie. Once a year proceeds from the Memorial Day & Veterans Day ruck march will be donated to a Veteran led Non-Profit organization in the local community.
