Adventure Dog Cross Country Challenge 2022 - April 3

You could be one of the Adventure Dog champions, running through the mud, jelly, rivers and colourful bursts of chalk with your best four-legged friend, a
ll while enjoying the views across the Yarra Valley towards Mt Donna Buang.

On 3 April 2022 at the picturesque Wandin Park Equestrian Centre, participants will be mentally and physically challenged by 25 obstacles spread over almost 4km. This event has been carefully crafted to be both engaging and exciting for human and canines alike.

One of our regular challengers Dillon, with race assistant Stitch, completed the course four times last year!

 “My favourite part of the event was having my best mate with me and doing a mud/obstacle run.

“I compete in other obstacle runs but can't take Stitch on those, so Adventure Dog is an awesome day for him. It's the perfect day to extend your bond with your best mate and hit some fitness goals. Letting your doggo meet other friends and playing in the mud doesn't get more fun than that.”

Dillon has chosen to fundraise this year to help the lost and homeless animals at Animal Aid.

“After doing the event last year, we met a lot of people who told us their stories of how Animal Aid had helped care for their pets or where they went to adopt.” 

“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! 

Do you feel like a muddy fun day out?
Entries will close on Sunday 23 March 2022.
