Muddy Dog Challenge 2018

We’re welcoming all dog lovers and their canine chums to take part in Battersea's Muddy Dog Challenge and to raise money to help care for our dogs and cats.

Join us and take on the UK's first 2.5km and 5km obstacle runs that you can tackle with your dog. You can enter as a dog-and-human duo or go solo if your pampered pooch wants to sit out.

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 2018, Muddy Dog Challenges will take place in Windsor, Nottingham, Manchester, Peterborough, Cardiff and Tunbridge Wells
