Temple, Tx
Saturday, May 27, 2023

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. Carry what you are comfortable with.  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 completion coin. Participants can preregister 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 or fewer before the event (supplies will be limited). After completing the ruck march, marchers will gather at the Santa Fe Plaza to enjoy food, locally-brewed craft beer, and camaraderie.

**Proceeds from this Memorial Day ruck march will be going to Hoofbeats For Hearoes. HOOFBEATS FOR HEROES is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation set up to serve our service members, veterans, first responders and their families.  We are currently operating BLORA Ranch on Fort Hood in Belton, Texas to provide relaxation, healing and fun for the entire community.**
