Road Runner 00 was a III Corps commander-directed, corps-level movement exercise involving III Corps, 1st Cavalry Division and 4th Infantry Division main, tactical and rear command posts, as well as some major-subordinate-command and brigade CPs. The exercise was based on a scenario that involved corps movement from tactical-assembly areas to attack positions simulating future operations.
Also, CPs executed a river crossing via raft or float bridge as part of their move forward from TAAs to change-of-mission locations. Once movements were complete, units readied for offensive operations as part of Phantom Menace, 1st Cavalry Divisions warfighter exercise.
The area used during Road Runner 00 involved three major supply routes spanning more than 100 miles from the Fort Hood, Texas, training areas, extending out to the National Guard training area at Camp Bowie in Brownwood, Texas. Fort Hood represented the corps sustaining base and logistics base, and doubled for attack-position locations. Camp Bowie was used as the TAA for corps, corps MSC and divisional tactical-command posts.
