Team RWB Long Island will assemble as a team on March 1, 5am-1pm, to memorialize, honor and remember their Guardian Eagle, Tim O' Connor, who passed last year on March 1, 2020.
This will be a multi-phase ruck march from the Long Beach Boardwalk, a special place for Tim and now hallowed ground for Team RWB Long Island, to his final resting place at Long Island National Cemetery. Total distance is 22.1 miles, but there will be multiple checkpoints for those that want to link up to ruck a shorter distance. This is an inclusive event for all of our teammates to honor Tim but for those unable to walk at a 17 minute/mile pace, please meet up with the group at the 8-mile link-up location.

After visiting Tim, the group will return to That Meetball Place for a meal and to shares stories in memory of Tim's life. They ask that everyone pack an extra ounce of patience as the timeline often gets shifted waiting for others to link up. Please do your best to be timely and if you miss a link up spot, continue to the next plot on the map. Do not over extend yourself. If you've never done a marathon, plan to meet up at a point other than the start point. This is not a training hike - this is a hike to remember Tim.
