Muddy Dog Challenge

Two and four-legged friends are invited to tackle our Muddy Dog Challenge 2017 which includes 2.5km and 5km obstacle runs.

About the challenge

This is the UK’s first obstacle course where animal lovers can compete in 2.5km and 5km runs with their dogs. You can enter in a team, as a duo or if your pet prefers to remain paw-fectly groomed you can take on the challenge alone.

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. Food and drink will also be served so you can refuel after the challenge.

First aid and veterinary support will be available on the day.


We ask each participating human to raise a minimum sponsorship target of £100 to help care for the dogs and cats here at Battersea.

If you would like any advice or help with reaching your sponsorship target please contact the Events Team.
