Relaying to Remember our Fallen.........
Through this event, we strive to honor and remember the October 7th, 2001 deployment of our Military Men and Women; those lost at war, including those who lost their lives due to military PTSD and the Invisible Wounds of War; support those currently serving, including our Veterans, and First Responders; and lastly, never forget those who perished on 9/11.
This 911 mile relay starts at Boston Logan Airport, continues on to New York City’s Freedom Tower and then to Flight 93 National Memorial in Stoystown, PA. We finish our 911 mile journey at the 9/11 memorial at the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia. We have a volunteer team along with those who are registered participants help complete 94 stages traversing through Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and Washington D.C. continuously for eight days. Stages are broken down into different types: Running, Cycling, Walking/Rucking, and Motorcycles.
Participants can register for any stage(s) portion they choose for a pledge of $35. Supporters are encouraged to raise additional funds individually or as a team. Those who wish to contribute, but are unable to run, can donate directly on the event website or send a check directly to Stride & Ride Foundation.

This relay is about individuals and teams coming together to help the Stride & Ride Tactical Team conquer the stages over eight days, seven nights and accomplishing something we could never do alone. Each stage is about uniting together, over coming fears, reaching outside your comfort zone to progress through running, rucking, walking, cycling or on a motorcycle with the intention of doing something greater than yourself to achieving the target points. From an avid runner to the generally active walker from carrying the weight of their sacrifice by rucking to cycling the day or night away or simply sitting back and riding the open road, Stride and Ride is the perfect relay for anyone.
Together we will honor and remember all of our Military Men and Women who so willingly left the safety of their homes to serve our country and continue doing so to this very day, while giving thanks to our Veterans, First Responders and pay our respects to the 2,977 lives lost on 9/11.
