This is the UK's first obstacle course where you can compete in 2.5km and 5km obstacle runs with your dog. You can enter as a team of humans, as a dog-and-human duo or go solo if your pampered pooch wants to sit out.

This year there will be four Muddy Dog Challenges happening in Nottingham, Windsor, Essex and Kent.

Sign up to the Muddy Dog Challenge 2017

Registration is now open for the Muddy Dog Challenge 2017. We ask everyone to pay a small registration fee to secure their place. Entry fees vary on your group size and the date you sign up, and early birds will pay a reduced entry fee.

We also ask every human participant to raise a minimum of £100 in sponsorship. This helps us continue to provide care for thousands of lost, abandoned and unwanted dogs and cats every year.

Human competitors must be aged 18 or over on race day and dog competitors must be one year or over.

Where do you want to take on the challenge?

Nottingham - Wollaton Hall, Nottingham on 6th May 2017
Windsor - Windsor Great Park, Windsor on 20th May 2017
Essex - Stansted Park Estate, Essex on 10th June 2017
Kent - Hever Castle, Kent on 30th September 2017

Friends and family are welcome to cheer you on at the venue and take part in the fun activities, music and competitions on offer at the event village. You and your canine will have a chance to refuel with refreshments, and first aid and veterinary cover will be available on the day.

Training for the Muddy Dog Challenge

You don’t need to be able to run a marathon to take part, but you’ll need to be fit. Speed through each challenge or trot along the length of the course. No time clock here, just supportive hands and paws along every obstacle.
