The City Ruck Tour 2019 (CRT19) is a series of 13 friendly Ruck Marches hosted by Operation Enduring Warrior (OEW), and led by select volunteers from OEW’s Masked Athlete Team and OEW’s Community Ambassador population. The purpose is to perform outdoor fitness in a group setting, while learning more about OEW’s mission, which is to Honor, Empower, and Motivate our nation’s wounded military veterans and law enforcement officers.
Event distances will vary from city to city, based on the assigned Ruck Leader’s plan. The pace will be moderate (approx. 18-20 minutes per mile), and the group will move together as one team. Short breaks will occur as needed. The amount of weight you carry in your rucksack is up to you. However, you are required to have two (2) quarts of water, a reflective band or belt on the outside of your ruck, and a headlamp or flashlight (if your event is at night). All rucks are kid friendly and dog friendly.
There will be scheduled Rally Points at preselected distances from the End-Point, so that participants may choose their desired milage . Upon conclusion of the ruck march, there will be a “Circle of Trust” closing ceremony where you will hear a testimony directly from one of our Adaptive Athlete honorees, military veteran, or Law Enforcement Officer. Prepare to be inspired. Everyone in the circle will receive a CRT patch, and probably a hug!
Cost is $35. Your registration fee goes directly to OEW’s treasury to fund OEW programs (like Task Force Sentinel) in addition to covering the cost of patches and volunteer Ruck Leader travel cost.
Please spread the word, bring some friends! See you there!
The City Ruck Tour is being run as a program of the Operation Enduring Warrior Adventure Program - whose lead is Danny Stokes. For any questions/comments, you can reach him at email@example.com or message us via Eventbrite, our website or social media.
