Donut Rucking with the Cider Mill 5K or 10K walk

first_imgENDICOTT (WBNG) — The JTM Ruck Club held a Donut Rucking with the Cider Mill 5K & 10K this morning in Endicott. During their journey, the group made a stop at the Cider Mill to grab some donuts before finishing their ruck back at the Roundtop Picnic Area.  Based out of Cortland, club founder Dustin Sherman says he wanted to do this event in a new place that he’s never been to.  Participants carried backpacks weighing up to 20 pounds on their ruck, and some even chose to carry their children! Rucking is carrying around a weighted backpack or some other type of load from point A to point B, usually a significant distance.  “I heard the Cider Mill was a nice place to go to,” Sherman said. “And why not? Change of environment and scenery.”  Sherman also says he was grateful for everyone who showed up to participate today.last_img read more
