Dirty Dog Challenge


2020 Dirty Dog Challenge

With the recent changes to the COVID-19 alert levels in New Zealand, Waikato District Council and Hamilton City Council regret to announce that the Dirty Dog challenge has been cancelled for 2020.

We’re disappointed to make this decision, but given the current alert levels and no certainty that the situation will improve, Dirty Dog cannot go ahead as planned on 12 September 2020. As always the health and wellbeing of our communities is our top priority.

We do however look forward to bringing back Dirty Dog in 2021 and hope you and your pooch will join us for this much-loved event.

All those who have registered and paid for Dirty Dog 2020, will be contacted shortly regarding your refund. Please bear with us while we work through this process.
