You Had Me At “Pug Race”: The Running Of The Pugs At Woofstock 2016 Is The Funniest Video

Every year Woofstock festival includes awesome and inevitably adorable events and competitions that anyone can enter their dogs in, and one of the main highlight is The Running of the Pugs!

Last weekend marked the 13th annual Woofstock – North America’s largest outdoor festival for dogs!

Every year the festival includes awesome and inevitably adorable events and competitions that anyone can enter their dogs in. One of the main festival highlights is The Running of The Pugs! This event is a huge hit every year, and we were on site to capture all the action! There were 50 pugs total who entered, and they raced until ONLY ONE REMAINED! There were 10 heats, two semi-final runs with the winners of each heat competing against one another. The two semi-finalists then smushy-faced-off against each other in one final race to determine who would be the victor in The Running of the Pugs 2016.

The semi final race was so close it was literally a photo-finish to determine who’d won! The winner of this was Muffin, one of the two finalists!

The other finalist was Tyson, who also won last year! Tyson can be seen here in the harness, racing Muffin who isn’t wearing a harness.
