Adventure Dog Cross Country Challenge 2021 - April 18

Make a splash!

Calling all dog lovers and their canine pals – join in the fun and take part in Adventure Dog - A Cross Country Challenge, to help raise funds to care for all of the animals at Animal Aid.

On 18 April 2021 at the picturesque Wandin Park Equestrian Centre, participants will be mentally and physically challenged by 25 obstacles spread over almost 4km. This will be the perfect event for dogs that love getting out and about, leaping and bounding, wading through water and muddy meadows.

“This event has been carefully crafted to be both engaging and exciting for human and canines alike. You can expect mud, jelly and obstacles amongst the stunning Yarra Valley landscape” says Elle Ammann, Adventure Dog Event Manager.

“Picture Tough Mudder with your dog” says Mark Menze, Animal Aid’s Chief Executive Officer. “Friends and family are welcome to come along on the day to give their support, there will be plenty of activities to keep them busy while you hit the course! 

After completing the challenge you and your four-legged friend will have a chance to re-join your supporters and refuel with plenty of food and drink on offer in the event village.”

Participants must register before 7 April 2021 in order to participate. Human entrants must be aged 12 or over (consent form signed by legal guardian for those under 18), and dog entrants must be aged one year or over on event day. All humans and dogs must be fit to participate.

We are asking all entrants to rally the support of their family and friends to support their individual fundraising. We're challenging our participant to raise funds for the homeless animals we care. 

“Those who accept the challenge and reach their fundraising goal, of $50, $250 or $500 will join the ranks of our Fundraising Heroes and will receive a specially commissioned Adventure Dog tee!” Menze said.

Animal Aid has been helping animals in need for over 70 years, we receive no government funding to operate and rely heavily on fundraising activities and community support. Every year over 6000 animals come through our doors, each one receives the highest quality care and support until we can get them home.
