About the Ruck4HIT

Heroes In Transition is proud to announce its seventh annual, team-based endurance ruck relay event — Ruck4HIT Cape Cod. A total of 13 teams will run 200+ miles through all 15 towns on the Cape, starting at midnight on Friday, April 29, 2022 at the Courtyard Restaurant in Bourne. The race will conclude roughly 36 hours later with a Finish Line Party at Cape Cod Coffee in Mashpee Commons on Saturday, April 30. From Bourne, participants will ruck to the tip of the Cape in Provincetown where the first team challenge — climbing the Pilgrim Monument together — will occur. Teams will then head to the finish line in Mashpee Commons. Each athlete will run 2-4 miles at a time with a 10- to 20-pound rucksack on his/her back. The rucksack is symbolic of the burdens our military and veterans make and have made in service to our country.

Why do we Ruck?

4 Those Who Can’t

Mission Statement:

Ruck4HIT was created in collaboration with supporters, local veterans and those currently serving to raise awareness and funds for Heroes In Transition and their programs which provide critical assistance to service members, veterans, and military families. As every service member is forced to carry the burden of war during active service and beyond, carrying the ruck sack is symbolic of hardships endured and the perseverance required to complete the mission, all in the continuing effort to never leave a fallen comrade behind.
