September 11, 2016 is the 15th anniversary of the 9-11 attacks. The goal of Ruck. Run. Remember. is to insure that we never forget those lost on September 11, 2001 and the sacrifices that first responders and military personnel make to protect us from evil. As a result of the September 11 attacks 2,995* people lost their lives. Each race participant will run in honor of one of the individuals who lost their lives that day.
THREE WAYS TO PARTICIPATE
20k Ruck (Backpack Carry) & Remember Carry a ruck sack (minimum 25 lbs) for the entire race distance. Gain insight into the world of the warriors who carry as much as 100 pounds of gear into battle. Feel a small portion of the pain that first responders feel as they carry 80+ pounds of turn out gear while they work to save lives every day.
20k Run & Remember Run 20k along a beautiful, flat, fast course. Awesome memorial items, food trucks, and an amazing finisher experience await you. Running a fall marathon? This is a great tune up! Most importantly, remember those who have fallen protecting us from evil both at home and abroad.
9k Ruck + 11k Run = 20k Ruck Run & Remember Want a taste of the ruck but unsure of your ability to complete 20k? No problem. We want as many people as possible to have a chance to experience the Ruck if they chose. You may “ruck” the first 9k and drop the pack to enjoy the final 11k.
