Muddy Dog Challenge 2019
1 CommentTuesday, 12 February 2019 | D for Dog
Battersea Dogs & Cats Home invite all two and four-legged friends to tackle their Muddy Dog Challenge which includes 2.5km and 5km obstacle runs. In 2019, Muddy Dog Challenges will take place in Exeter, Windsor, Cheltenham, Nottingham, Manchester, Tunbridge Wells, Newcastle and Leeds. All the events take place on a Saturday, with Sunday events also taking place in Windsor and Manchester due to high demand. Select a location and date that suits you and sign up.
In this obstacle course animal lovers compete in 2.5km and 5km runs with their dogs. You can enter as a team of humans, as a dog-and-human duo or go solo if your pampered pooch wants to sit out.
You don’t need to be able to run a marathon to take part, but you'll need to be fit. Speed through each challenge or trot along the length of the course. No time clock here, just supportive hands and paws along every obstacle.
This year, you can also register the kids to join you and your four-legged friend at all venues.
Exeter - Saturday 13th April
Windsor - Saturday 11th May and Sunday 12th May
Cheltenham - Saturday 1st June
Nottingham - Saturday 29th June
Manchester - Saturday 14th September & Sunday 15th September

Prepare yourself for a day of mud, sweat, and cheers on this dog-friendly obstacle course. By taking part, you’ll be helping Battersea Dogs & Cats Home provide love and care for the thousands of lost, abandoned and unwanted dogs and cats that come into their care.
Friends and family are welcome to cheer you on at the venue and take part in the fun activities, music and competitions on offer at the event village. You and your canine will have a chance to refuel with refreshments, and first aid and veterinary cover will be available on the day.
