The City Ruck Tour 2018 (CRT18) is a series of 60 friendly Ruck Marches hosted by Operation Enduring Warrior (OEW) and led by select volunteers from OEW’s Masked Athlete Team and OEW’s Community Ambassador population. The purpose is to perform outdoor fitness in a group setting, while learning more about OEW’s mission, which is to Honor, Empower, and Motivate our nation’s wounded military veterans. On average the distance will be 12 miles, and will vary from city to city, based on the assigned Ruck Leader’s plan. The pace will be moderate (approx. 18-20 minutes per mile), and the group will move together as one team. Short breaks will occur as needed. The amount of weight you carry in your rucksack is up to you. However, you are required to have two (2) quarts of water, a reflective band or belt on the outside of your ruck, and a headlamp or flashlight. Kid friendly. Dog friendly. There will be a Rally Point (RP) 3-4 miles from the End-Point, for any late comers to join in for the final miles. Upon conclusion of the ruck march, there will be a “Circle of Trust” closing ceremony where you will hear a testimony directly from one of our Adaptive Athlete honorees, or participating military veteran. Prepare to be inspired. Everyone in the circle will receive a CRT patch, and probably a hug! This year’s Tour is adopting a special theme…Veterans reaching out to Policemen! OEW will lead the nationwide effort in providing much needed relief to our hurting Law Enforcement Officer community. OEW challenges you to embrace this initiative. Every CRT city will have policemen rucking with us. We will hear their stories. We will demonstrate our support. We will show our respect. We will express our gratitude for the thankless and dangerous job they perform. OEW is helping launch a “Task Force Blue” (name pending approval) police services organization that will do for our injured cops what OEW does for our wounded vets, ultimately saving lives by preventing suicide. All CRT tour stops are FREE to cops (active and retired). Everyone else pays $25. Your registration fee goes directly to OEW’s treasury to fund OEW programs in addition to covering the cost of patches and volunteer Ruck Leader travel cost. Please spread the word, bring some friends! See you there!

Why take this CSM course?  Because, when it comes to Agile, mindset (how you think) matters more than practices (what you do). And that means you want a world-class training environment and a top-quality experience from an exceptional instructor. One that helps you get into the Agile frame of mind so you can stop working harder and start working more effectively to deal with the challenging issues you face every day. After all, processes and tools can get you only so far. Now’s the time to ask yourself the tough questions:  Am I satisfied to cobble together activities that seem like Scrum or am I ready to get serious about using the real thing? Am I ready to truly understand Agile—to put "whys before hows," and learn the underlying principles and values that drive success before getting into successful practices—or am I satisfied to just do Agile? Am I ready to hold real conversations with my managers and executives or am I satisfied to stick with superficial interactions? Am I ready to start measuring value delivered and stop measuring work output? Am I ready for a one-of-a-kind training experience that instills the confidence to engage successfully in Agile practices as soon as I get back to my team or am I satisfied to stick with the typical Agile training session?  With successful course completion, you can choose to become a Certified ScrumMaster® by passing the short exam found on the Scrum Alliance website.
