About the Ruck4HIT
Heroes in Transition holds its Annual Ruck4HIT each spring. 2024 will be the 9th year running. A team-based ruck relay, the event will have teams run 200+ miles through all 15 towns on the Cape, starting in Bourne. The race will conclude roughly 36 hours later with a Finish Line Party. 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 towards the finish line in Mashpee to celebrate what they accomplished together.
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.
Ruck4HIT was created in collaboration with supporters, local veterans, first responders and those currently serving to raise awareness and funding for Heroes In Transition, Inc. and their various veteran/active service members and military family programs.
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.
This event will raise funds for Heroes In Transition, all in the continuing effort to never leave a fallen comrade behind.
All participants, drivers and volunteers are representatives of Ruck4HIT and Heroes In Transition.
