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.

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.

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.
