    The GORUCK division of the TMF 9/11 Heroes race requires participants to carry a weighted rucksack or other type weighted backpack. We welcome ruckers of all levels to join us and earn a patch. However, to compete for a top finisher medal in the GORUCK division, your ruck must contain the prescribed additional weight based on body weight:

    For participants weighing 149 lbs or less, a 10-pound weight is required to qualify for the competitive GORUCK division.
    For those weighing 150 lbs or more, a 20-pound weight is required to qualify
    for the competitive GORUCK division.
    Weighted vests and RPC's are allowed and qualify for the competitive GORUCK division.
    LEOs and Firefighters in full turnout gear qualify for the competitive GORUCK division.
    Your body weight is on the honor system.


    All 9/11 Heroes Runs will go whether rain or shine but in the event of a major weather emergency and your race location must cancel the race, your race fee will not be refunded – however, it will be deemed 100 percent tax deductible as a donation to the Travis Manion Foundation’s 9/11 Heroes Run.

    Travis Manion Foundation is proud to partner with GORUCK again in 2023, bringing rucking divisions to every 9/11 Heroes Run. Rucking is a sport grounded in Special Forces Training in which participants carry weighted rucksacks. All participants registered for the GORUCK division will receive this year's exclusive TMF GORUCK patch. Please read the rules and requirements carefully as they have changed since last year.
