Muddy Dog Challenge

We’re welcoming humans and their dogs to take part in Muddy Dog Challenge, proudly supported by Seresto Flea and Tick Control Collar. Sign up to raise money for the dogs and cats here at Battersea.

Join us and take on the UK’s first 2.5km or 5km obstacle runs that you can tackle with your dog. You can enter as a dog and human team, or on your own.

This year, you can also register the kids to join you and your four-legged friend at all venues.


Choose a location

Prepare yourself for a day of mud, sweat, and cheers on our dog-friendly obstacle course. By taking part, you’ll be helping us provide love and care for the thousands of lost, abandoned and unwanted dogs and cats that come into our care.

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.
