Welcome to Capital Tour 2017!
Category : Information
Danny Stokes will journey to 48 State Capitals and lead an epic 20 mile Ruck March ending at each state capitol building, in order to strengthen our community of patriotic athletes and raise funds for Operation Enduring Warrior (OEW). His support vehicle will drop him off 20 miles outside of each capital building, where he will link up with local athletes, ruckers and ruck clubs. Those who join must be able to cover the distance in under seven hours, carrying 20 pounds or 20 kilograms in your ruck, your choice. Expect a short WOD before we step off, fellowship along the way, and a brief presentation upon endex, highlighting the life of a virtuous American whose work impacted the State. You’ll get a cool patch, and possibly a cold beverage and a slice of pizza. There will be a Merchandise Table, highlighting the gear of our sponsors, and of course T-shirts. Expect to have a good time, and see some great organizations representing such as F3, Team RWB, FiA, OEW, The Fab Four, and Travail CrossFit.
Approximately 80 days on the road divided into four segments; February through November, 2017. Please see the Tour Dates page for more info and come out for a great time and even greater cause!
