duathlonWhat could be more fun than challenging your dog to a swim or run?  We couldn’t think of anything!  This year marked the first-ever Doggie Du Dash in Austin, Texas — a swim and run duathlon done entirely with your dog.

The event took place on Monday, May 25.

Owners and their pups swam 375 meters and ran one mile together through the course. Check out the coverage of these canine athletes all geared up in their life vests.
