Tough Ruck is group of military and civilians whose sole purpose is to Ruck in honor and in memory of our Fallen Service Members, Police, Firefighters and EMTs, while raising funds to support military families in times of need. We will walk a 26.2 mile course with our Rucks and carry the names of our Fallen comrades with us. We are proud to announce the continuation of our partnership with the Boston Athletic Association, the National Park Service and the Old Manse.

On April 15, 2013, the Tough Ruck members were at the finish line of the Boston Marathon and joined the first responders to help those that were injured by the horrific blasts. They truly exemplify the best of what our Nation is. Today the Ruck happens the Saturday before Boston Marathon Monday in Concord, Massachusetts. Each year Ruckers are awarded the first of the official Boston Marathon Medals and receive recognition from the Boston Athletic Association.

The Mission Continues Boston and Lowell Platoons will be teaming up to volunteer for Tough Ruck 2019. There are two shifts we will have for the day:

1:00-6:30PM - Finish Line Weigh Station, Weigh Rucker Bags & determine top finishers and qualifiers | 10 volunteers needed

5:00-7:00PM - Breakdown and Clean-up | 10 volunteers needed

This is a family-friendly event and all are welcome, but for the weigh station we are looking for ages 14+.

TMC shirt and appropriate clothes for being on your feet.
