An enjoyable hilly trek with beautiful views. You can choose to tackle either a 10km or 20km trek, which you can enter as a dog and human team, or on your own. Both routes start and finish at Firle Place, in the village of Firle near Lewes.
The 10km route starts at Firle Place before heading out onto the Old Coach Road at the foot of the South Downs. The route continues towards Alciston along a gentle track, with sweeping views North over the High Weald in Kent. At Alciston participants will tackle a steep climb up onto the top of the South Downs for stunning 360-degree views to the coast and beyond.
The 20km route also starts at Firle Place before heading out onto the Old Coach Road at the foot of the South Downs. The route continues towards Alciston along a gentle track, with sweeping views North over the High Weald in Kent. At Alciston participants will enjoy their first break with energy snacks, water, tea and coffee. Participants then continue towards the beautiful and picturesque riverside village of Alfriston on the Cuckmere River.
There will be free access for visitors.
Car park available.
The Muddy Dog Trek is a challenging event and will not be suitable for all dogs. Please consider your dog’s age, health, breed-type and ability before registering. For example, many flat-nose, overweight or older dogs might struggle to complete the 20km distance but may be able to complete the 10km distance if they are used to regular long walks. We advise speaking to your vet before registering as all dogs are different. We also advise that in the lead up to the event, you should consider going on a few long walks, gradually increasing the distance to improve your dog’s stamina prior to the event.
All human participants must be aged 18 or above on event day. All dogs taking part must be aged 1 or above on event day.
We ask that every human participant raises a minimum of £100 in sponsorship so that we can ensure as much money as possible goes towards helping our dogs and cats. You will be given up to one month after the event to complete your fundraising, so you do not need to have raised the full amount by event day. We will be providing you with lots of fundraising advice in the lead up to the event and our dedicated team will be on-hand to support you with your fundraising.
It’s fine for dogs to take part with a muzzle. Due to the high number of dogs taking part in the Muddy Dog Trek, all dogs participating in the event need to be sociable around other dogs. If we feel that your dog is becoming reactive or stressed on the day, you may be asked to leave the event by a member of the Battersea Team.
Only one dog is allowed per participant.
