How To Wrap Your Bricks

If you are new to rucking with bricks or a veteran of this practice the question of HOW to best wrap your bricks is one that brings up numerous answers.  WHY ruck with bricks?  Ummm, why not? Rucking with bricks allows for more Good Livin’.  Roll with that!

WHY wrap your bricks?  Well, you need a little padding on those corners to prevent the bricks from damaging your ruck.  Even the sturdiest bad-ass rucks are not made of steel.  Duct tape is your friend.  Bubble wrap helps although I don’t use it anymore as I find it can get too bulky.  You can wrap your bricks in one’s and two’s…or more.  It just depends on your personal preference.

What is the Goruck Challenge?

You’ve done a mud run.

You’ve conquered an obstacle race.

You’ve sprinted your way through a 5K.

You’ve endured a 1/2 marathon.

Maybe you’ve even gotten shit done at a triathlon.

What next you ask?  How about the Goruck Challenge!  This is a team-based overnight event.  It is not a race.  Team work is essential as you make your way across your fair city.  Led by a Special Forces cadre, you and your team work together to accomplish more than you thought possible.  The miles are long.  The night is longer.
