Tough Ruck 2014 final details and Team WAAF/1-182 Infantry

 

As I'm sure you've heard by now, the Tough Ruck and the ruckers cannot be part of the Boston Marathon this year. 

Rather than just give up, we have adapted, and come up with Plan B.

Over 700 registered ruckers will be there, rucking, and raising money for the Military Friends Foundation.

We are very proud that your Tough Ruck 2014 will be in the place where it all started on April 19th, 1775; Concord, MA.  

Our gracious hosts at the Minute Man National Historical Park have a long standing and special relationship with the military.  Modern day  units, including the 1-182nd Infantry Battalion, trace their history back to the encounter at Concord's North Bridge on April 19th, 1775. Together our stories overlap.  We are very pleased to be hosted by these great educators and historians along the park's Battle Road Trail(see link below for a map).

We hope that while you are supporting a defender of our freedom here, that you do come out and cheer on your Tough Ruckers along the course.  On the course will not only be the Tough Ruckers, marching in honor of all our fallen brothers and sisters, but also hundreds of reenactors, historical presentations, and so many more activities for all ages.  This is going to be such a great and amazing event that everyone can come out to and enjoy.
