The Final Miles Are The Most Important Miles. Together We Bring A Show Of Force Through The National Mall & Through The War Memorials & Finally Over Memorial Bridge, Ending At Arlington National Cemetery. Final Mile Participants Join The Participants From The 60 to 60 & Together, Complete The Mission To Honor & Remember on Memorial Day Morning.
Experience The True Meaning Of Memorial Day mission By Honoring, Remembering & Never Forgetting the Sacrifices made.
Ruck/Back Pack: (Tactical or Practical) – Covering 6 miles, you won't need a large pack, but you will want to blend in and you never know if you will have the oppertunity to help out a fellow team mate with carrying some of their gear during the final trek.
Water: A bladder type system is recommended, but provided you have a couple bottles of water you will be fine.
USG Issued ID: Required at Check-in.
Head Lamp w/White Lens: We step off just before sunrise. The white lens is mainly a safety precaution as we move in the early morning hours.
Green Chem Light: / Glow Stick attached to your pack (again a safety precaution).
Note: You will receive your Mission T-shirt at Check-in. You are required to wear this shirt and tan/khaki (hiking) pants when you check in. You are invited to attend the Mission Check-In on Friday (Please see the 60 to 60 Schedule) to collect or shirt. If not, please plan to arrive a bit early Monday morning to get your shirt.
