Mike was invited back to cover RuckFest which is a competitive rucking event featuring a trail event, games events, as well as a team krew event. They are all run by Brandon Welling from TPK Endurance and Mark Jones!

This time Mike stepped up and ran the 6.9 mile competitive trail course instead of the 3.1 mile fun run, and he brought Katelyn too! After participating in the trail event both Mike and Katelyn volunteered to help out with the Ruck Games!

This is a long episode due to getting event audio to give you listeners more of an understanding of what the event is like (and hopefully encourage you to join next year), and a bunch of interviews. Check the time stamps below if you are more interested in some sections of the episode over others.
