For the heavy category, we would like to encourage you to bring beans, rice, non perishable items, cans, macaroni, pasta, cat/dog food to use as weight in you backpack. At the conclusion for the march, you can drop your items in the bin and it will be donated to the Roadrunner Food Bank. For those of you traveling, you may buy these items at the White Sands Commissary, AAFES, or local grocery stores once you arrive. No need to pack extra weight in your suitcases. You may not pack logs, water, rocks, sand, or anything that can be replenished along the route (unless the bags are sealed to the satisfaction of march officials). Each backpack will be inspected at the finish line upon completion of the march.
