Returning for the third year, the Nottingham Muddy Dog Challenge is taking place in the grounds of the spectacular Wollaton Hall – an Elizabethan mansion, set atop a hill in Wollaton Park, in the beautiful suburbs of Nottingham.

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 lucky 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.
