Next time you go for a run, why not think about taking your dog along with you? Our favorite four legged friends can provide great company while you work to stay active. To inspire runners to get out and run with their pups, Purina Pro Plan partnered with MapMyFitness to launch the Fit Together Challenge.
The Fit Together Challenge will run now through August 8. Dog owners can go to www.mapmyfitness.com/purinaproplan to join. Here participants can track their progress, win prizes, learn from videos and articles with tips on nutrition and exercise, and share their experience with their social networks by posting with the hashtag #fittogether.
Participants have to log at least 20 dog walks or runs (for 15 minutes or more) throughout the Challenge, and are entered for the chance to win daily or weekly prizes, depending on their daily participation and number of workouts logged per week. Prizes include 18-pound bags of Purina Pro Plan and special Purina Pro Plan Sport Packs. One grand prize winner will get a year’s supply of Pro Plan.
