The Muddy Dog Challenge is back in Exeter [well, technically Teignbridge, but let’s just plump for Greater Exeter] for even more mud, sweat and cheers in 2020 – and to help Battersea care for more abandoned dogs and cats.
The Muddy Dog Challenge, the UK’s biggest obstacle course you can run with your dog, is now in its sixth year, supported by Seresto flea and tick control collar. Dogs and their owners can take part together to raise vital funds for thousands of homeless dogs and cats that come into the animal rescue centre each year, as well as helping those across the country and all over the world.
Participants can enter solo, in a team with the kids, with or without a dog, and there is a distance of 2.5km or 5km distance you can choose from.
Jasmine Monk, senior challenge events officer at Battersea, told The Devon Week: “The Muddy Dog Challenge is back in Powderham Castle this year with even more muddy obstacles for humans and dogs to tackle, all in aid of Battersea. We’re looking forward to having even more fun this year!
“Last year we raised over one million pounds and that’s all thanks to everyone who took part and showed that rescue is their favourite breed. All the money raised goes back into the care of the thousands of dogs and cats looking for a second chance in life – we couldn’t do what we do without our generous supporters.”
