End of Watch Ruck

The End of Watch Memorial Ruck Returns to Santa Rosa County

MILTON, Fla.- September 26 - October 2, 2021, teams of athletes will set out in a relay event to ruck 368 miles over the course of 7 days. These athletes will work as teams to carry 368, 1- pound weights, for 368 miles.

The 2021 End of Watch Memorial Ruck will be based at the Santa Rosa County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa County, Florida, and will traverse 368 miles around a circuit in East Milton. The event will span the full seven days in a 24/7 relay style event.

Each weight bears the name of an officer who died in the line of duty in 2020.

“Every day, men and women in law enforcement across this country leave their homes and families to answer the call of service to a greater mission.” said Caleb Cook, the founder of the event. “Tragically, this call to service can require a heavy sacrifice. This sacrifice is not only made up by the dangers that come with violent situations, but also the cumulative stress from the burden of the badge.”

Cook continues by explaining, “The End of Watch Memorial Ruck is designed to reverently honor the fallen and support those still on watch, while also building a stronger community between law enforcement and civilians through education and awareness.”

The End of Watch Memorial Ruck (#EOWMR) is in its fourth year and is organized by the End of Watch Foundation (EOWF). Funds raised by the event will go to support the mission of the End of Watch Foundation. To learn more about the EOWF Mission go to eowf.org/mission This year athletes will follow a closed, outdoor course at the Santa Rosa County Fairgrounds. Athletes (ruckers), volunteers, and sponsors interested in the event are encouraged to visit www.EOWF.org for more information.

If an organization would like to enter a large team they can contact caleb@eowf.org and he will coordinate with them. This should prevent some confusion on them having each individual teammate signup online.

When folks see the leg distances, don't let them be intimidated by the number of miles. This is a team event. They are not expected to do all the miles with all the weight. They simply need to work as a team to ruck the weight the distance of their leg. So they can take a break if needed, they just need to pass the weight in their ruck to another person who is still rucking.
