Challenge events

Get muddy, work up a sweat, trek the coastline or get wet. Whatever you decide to do, do it for Battersea. Because with your support we can be here for every dog and cat.

We are really hopeful that 2021 will see the return of all our challenge events. We are in constant communication with all the event organisers and we will update our supporters if we hear of any changes to the events below.
