Event Details

Have you ever woken up Monday morning on Memorial Day and thought, this day should mean something more? Over the past 11 years, the Ruck to Remember now called the Honor Movement has been creating a movement within a movement, where you join Civilians, Veterans & Active Duty patriots, together, hiking, rucking, really walking to Honor our Fallen and to bring a show of force through National Capitol region over Memorial Day weekend.

There are 3 Options to take part in the Memorial Day weekend Movement Within A Movement.

Ruck to Remember (Full weekend - 40+ mile hike - a grueling but humbling mission)

FINAL Miles (The most important 7.5 miles, starting at sunrise Memorial Day morning)

Virtual (Just as important, but you do it on your own, you receive your mission shirt and you hike, on a trail, in your neighborhood, city, where-ever you choose, Memorial day weekend, at any distance).
