Kate Upton and her fiance Justin Verlander are up for any challenge!

The 25-year-old model and the 34-year-old Detroit Tigers pitcher teamed up to participate in a workout event hosted by Wins for Warriors, called the Patriot Ruck, which is a race similar to a 5K, but participants are walking with weighted backpacks rather than just running.

“Thanks to the @marines for getting me ready for #MarineWeek and the @winsforwarriors Patriot Ruck!!,” Kate captioned with her Instagram post. “I have few more workouts to go before I’m ready 😂 #rucktohonor #winsforwarriors Thank you GySgt Sara Pacheco! #UnlikeAny #UAFreedom”

The workout raised awareness for Detroit Marine Week, a weeklong event honoring the Marine Corps and their families through more than 80 community outreach activities throughout metro Detroit, according to a Marine Week news release. The events will take place Sept. 6-10.
