GORUCK’s Ruck Your Dog virtual event benefiting Pets For Patriots is back for its second year! Last year this event raised over $40,000 for Pets For Patriots and we can’t wait to see what GORUCK is able to do this time around.
Registration is open and the rucking virtual event, like last time, is done at your own pace and is on the honor system. This is such a great way to give yourself just one more excuse to take that pup out for a longer walk and bring some weight along for the ride. Please note we recommend not putting a weighted ruck on your pup… be a team player and carry that weight for them!
The patch you receive at the end of the event has the distance you registered for on it which is awesome. Although some of the distances are fairly expensive it’s important to remember that 100% of the proceeds are going to Pets For Patriots. Last year there were seven distances available and this year they’ve changed that that to five distances. The 1 mile, 5 kilometer, 10 kilometer, half-marathon, and full marathon distances are gone and in their place are 10 miles, 25 miles, and 75 miles. The 50 mile and 100 mile distances are back again for those who have young pups with a spring in their step.
In addition to putting on the event GORUCK is selling Ruck Your Dog shirts. These shirts have a slick design (as expected) and have 100% of their proceeds going to Pets For Patriots as well.
Pets For Patriots is a wonderful organization and is one that we routinely donate over $1,000 per year to thanks to purchases made in the ADR Store.
We’re so excited to see this event back again and can’t wait to earn some more of these patches with our pup! We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments on what distances you’re planning on attempting and your your feelings at some of those shorter distances being removed.
