Our northernmost Muddy Dog Challenge takes place in the showgrounds of the beautiful Ashley Hall in Cheshire. New for 2018, our Manchester event is 15 miles from the city centre.

Whether you’re a fitness fanatic or just looking for a fun day out, we welcome all dog lovers and their canine chums to take part and raise money to help care for the animals at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home.

You can enter as a dog-and-human duo or go solo if your pampered pooch wants to sit it out. 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.

Humans taking part must be aged 18 or over, and dog competitors must be one year or over, on event day. First aid and veterinary cover will also be available on the day.

Type of entry Registration fee* Minimum sponsorship pledge
Human and dog entries £48.04 £100
Human-only entries £37.50 £100

Please note that all tickets for Muddy Dog Challenge events are sold via Eventbrite. When signing up, you will be taken to the Eventbrite site in order to complete your registration.

* Includes Eventbrite processing fee

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