Join us in Leeds for for the Muddy Dog Challenge 2019, a 2.5km or 5km obstacle run that you can tackle with your dog.

In the heart of Yorkshire sits the beautiful Harewood House. The parkland of the estate has views of the rolling landscape and is the venue of our first ever Leeds Muddy Dog Challenge, which is less than 10 miles from Leeds, York and Harrogate.

Whether you’re a fitness fanatic or just looking for a fun day out, we welcome humans and their dogs to take part and raise money to help care for the dogs and cats at Battersea.


You’ll get a Muddy Dog Challenge t-shirt, and a bandana for your dog to wear on the day. After you’ve completed the course, you’ll be awarded a medal, and your dog will get a rosette to wear with pride.

Friends and family are welcome to come along on the day, and you and your four-legged friend will have a chance to refuel with plenty of food and drink on offer in the event village.

First aid and veterinary cover will also be available on the day.

We ask each Muddy Dog Challenge participant to raise £100 to help us to be here for every cat and dog. Although there is no fundraising target for children, if you are running with a child we encourage you to try and raise more than £100.

The money you raise by taking part in the Muddy Dog Challenge will go towards the running of Battersea.



If you can’t wait to get stuck in, register your interest in taking part in Muddy Dog Challenge 2020. You'll be the first to know when we launch the Muddy Dog Challenge events next year.
