GORUCK and Pets For Patriots are back together for Ruck Your Dog 2019! This event is also the third Rucking Challenge of the year. Like other years there’s different patches that you can purchase then ruck the miles for.
Unlike other years the shortest patch (5K) is absolutely free. In addition the 100 mile patch is slightly different than the lesser mile amounts. It’s a really cool idea and I’m glad there’s some distinction (besides the miles) between the patches.
For those of you who know Watson you know he’s old. He’s had more surgeries in the past year than I’ve had in my life and he’s not up for rucking 100 miles. He’ll probably hit 5k for the ENTIRE month of March. This year people like myself and those who don’t own dogs are in luck. The rules have been changed and are now rucking with pets is “encouraged, but not required to participate.”
Something tells me Watson will be happy to know he doesn’t have to tag along every time.
Shirts are also available for this event for $30. Grab one and don’t be sad when they’re gone for the year. This shirt is probably the most requested design (based on emails sent to me) that GORUCK has made.
