important: Manchester Muddy Dog Challenge POSTPONed

As temperatures are forecast to be particularly high, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the Manchester Muddy Dog Challenge event due to take place on Saturday 7 July.

At Battersea, animal welfare is our top priority and we have a duty of care to all the animals and owners taking part in our events which we take very seriously. This difficult decision was made by the Muddy Dog team and Battersea’s team of vets, who have been monitoring the weather throughout the week.

We know that this may be disappointing news for those of you who have been eagerly looking forward to the event and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

What happens now?

Our team is working hard to rearrange the event, aiming for a date in October this year. We will confirm the revised date as soon as we can, and it is our hope that registered participants will still be able to attend.

I had registered for the event on Saturday 7 July - what do I need to do?

Please continue to check your email inbox and this website in the coming weeks for confirmation of the new Manchester 2018 date. If you are unable to attend, we can transfer you to our 2019 Manchester event when registrations open later in the year.

Alternatively, if you would like to join us at one of our other locations this year instead, please contact us at

Thank you for your understanding and for everything you’ve done in preparation for the event.
