FREE Event Hosted by Vice City Ruckers
Training Level: Intermediate
Join us for our 3rd Annual Ruck to Abbey Brewing Company's Anniversary Party on South Beach. This is a one way 12-mile ruck from Dunkin Donuts by Oleta park to the Abbey. This means that the endpoint is at the Abby Brewing Company in South Beach and you are responsible to get back to the start point on your own (walk, uber, free trolly, ruck back etc..)
Here is more information from their FB Event.
Join us on Sunday, June 30th, for the Abbey 24 year anniversary party. Enjoy an open bar from 11AM-12PM, A complimentary Pig Roast, and pub fare, a killer line-up of craft beers, and cocktails, for just $6 each until 5 AM, the next day. Must be 21+ to attend with proper ID.
If you do not want to go all the way down to South Beach you can join us and just turn around at the desired mileage you want to do. For example, if you turn around after 2 miles then it will be 2 miles back for a total of 4 miles. You can also just join us for the 11AM party at Abbey.
