Battersea’s Muddy Dog Challenge is back

The Muddy Dog Challenge is back in Exeter for more mud, sweat and cheers helping to raise money for the dogs and cats at Battersea. 

Battersea’s Muddy Dog Challenge is one of the UK’s biggest obstacle courses you can take part in with your dog. The aim of the challenge is simply to have fun while raising money for Battersea. 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 to choose from. All registered participants will receive a Muddy Dog Challenge t-shirt and dog bandana to take part in, and a medal and rosette for crossing the finish line.
