Nov 8, 2021

Mike went down to New Jersey to do his first rucking event since Tough Ruck 26.2 back in 2016.  This event was Ruck: Beta which is potentially the start of something big from race directors Mark Jones and Brendon Welling!

Mike finished his short course of the trail, interviewed ruck trail participants, a talk with a Reign employee, recorded audio of the ruck games explanation, ruck game participant interviews, and an interview with the race directors!  Keep an eye out for RuckFest and TPK events in the future!
