Battersea’s Muddy Dog Challenge is one of the UK’s biggest obstacle courses participants can take part in with their dog. Held in the grounds of the historic Harewood House, the aim of the challenge is simply to have fun while raising money.
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.
