On Friday, November 1st, at 23:59 (11:59pm), men from all over Dallas/Fort Worth will participate in a marathon of a mental and physical challenge. The event begins at Flag Pole Hill in Lake Highlands and includes fifteen miles of rucking (carrying 30 pounds), in addition to several physical challenges, over 7 hours through the night. We will conclude with an hour-long bootcamp workout from 0700 to 0800 at Burleson Park by SMU.
The event is FREE and open to ALL MEN.
The event, nicknamed “Panzerschwein” (German – “armadillo,” or “Armored Pig”), is being led by F3 DFW, a free men’s workout and leadership group, whose mission is “to plant, serve, and grow small workout groups for the reinvigoration of male community leadership.”
F3 DFW meets six days a week at several locations around The Metroplex for free, early-morning, boot-camp and running-style workouts. You can find out more information at f3dfw.com, f3nation.com, or reach us on Twitter @F3_Dallas.
Notes: We jokingly call this event a “CSAUP”, an acronym for “Completely Stupid and Utterly Pointless,” but completing Panzerschwein has many benefits, including adding to each man’s physical and mental toughness.
