Our popular Dirty Dog Challenge is back!

We're holding a unique event with Hamilton City Council where you and your pooch can navigate your way through a mud-filled obstacle course.

If your dog loves running, climbing, water or mud (and you don't mind getting a bit grubby), come along to our Dirty Dog Challenge at Ngaruawahia Christian Youth Camp on Saturday 26 June.

We want to give something back to all the good dog owners in our communities – this is a fun event that your dog will enjoy as much as you do!

Registrations close 5pm Tuesday 22 June!

WHEN: There are two start times this year, you will need to select a start time when completing the registration form.

WHERE: Christian Youth Camp, 148 Waingaro Rd, Ngaruawahia​​​

EVENT DISTANCES: Choose your level – we have two courses available – 2.5km or 6km​​

COST: $50 – this includes one person and one dog, $25 extra is payable for an additional runner (please note, you may only have one additional runner and the second runner must be at least eight years old).

Each run has a maximum capacity of 250 dogs, register early to ensure you don't miss out!

There will be an area where you and your dog can clean off before you leave (imagine having to clean the inside of your car if you didn't!).
