The City Ruck Tour 2018 (CRT18) is a series of 60 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.

On average the distance will be 12 miles, and 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. Kid friendly. Dog friendly.

There will be a Rally Point (RP) 3-4 miles from the End-Point, for any late comers to join in for the final miles. 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, or participating military veteran. Prepare to be inspired. Everyone in the circle will receive a CRT patch, and probably a hug!

This year’s Tour is adopting a special theme…Veterans reaching out to Policeman! OEW will lead the nationwide effort in providing much needed relief to our hurting Law Enforcement Officer community. OEW challenges you to embrace this initiative. Every CRT city will have policemen rucking with us. We will hear their stories. We will demonstrate our support. We will show our respect. We will express our gratitude for the thankless and dangerous job they perform. OEW is helping launch a “Task Force Blue” (name pending approval) police services organization that will do for our injured cops what OEW does for our wounded vets, ultimately saving lives by preventing suicide.

All CRT tour stops are FREE to cops (active and retired). Everyone else pays $25. Your registration fee goes directly to OEW’s treasury to fund OEW programs in addition to covering the cost of patches and volunteer Ruck Leader travel cost.

Please spread the word, bring some friends! See you there!
