GORUCK, a veteran-owned fitness company that builds American-made, military-grade gear and apparel and leads rucking-based endurance events, has named ScoutComms, Inc. as its public relations Agency of Record to drive awareness of GORUCK as the leading authority on rucking. Since GORUCK started in 2008, millions of new ruckers have rucked millions of miles, all over the world.

“We’ve never hired a public relations agency before, but felt that ScoutComms was the right fit at the right time. With both companies born from the veteran community, we have a connection and understanding that will serve us well as we work towards our goal of expanding the fitness activity of rucking,” said GORUCK Founder and CEO Jason McCarthy.
GORUCK conducts more than 1,000 rucking events annually led by Cadre, all who are combat veterans of Special Operations. GORUCK also manufactures tough gear and apparel that is perfect for rucking. Wherever and whoever you are, GORUCK knows rucking can be for you. Rucking requires strength, endurance, and character – and builds it too.
“The opportunity to partner with a growing and unique brand like GORUCK is incredibly exciting for us,” said Fred Wellman, Founder and CEO of ScoutComms. “As fellow veteran-owned businesses with a mission-driven culture in common, we found a great fit for our firm to be able to tell GORUCK’s story to a wider audience and share the attraction of rucking as an accessible sport focused on camaraderie.”
The two companies will collaborate to ultimately strengthen communities through rucking. Rucking combines strength training and cardio, uses weight as a great equalizer to adapt to anyone’s training goals, and is a popular, empowering activity.
