Adventure Dog Cross Country Challenge 2024 - April 7

Adventure Dog 2024: Triumph Together at Australia’s Largest Canine Cross Country Event

Gear up for Animal Aid's annual Adventure Dog on April 7th 2024, where every leap and dash is a step towards triumph. 

It's a day to push your limits, revel in the mud, and celebrate the unbreakable bond you share with your dog, all while making a meaningful impact on the lives of homeless animals.

Whether it's your pup's first splash or your joint quest for adventure, every duo has their own Everest to conquer. Join us on the picturesque 4km course in Gruyere, Victoria, and let each obstacle strengthen the connection between you and your companion.

Join us in celebrating the thrill of the outdoors and the joy of giving back. All funds raised directly support Animal Aid's mission to provide care and find homes for over 6,000 animals each year.

Elle Ammann, Communications & Engagement Manager, shares:

"Each step you take at Adventure Dog is a celebration of the partnership you’ve built with your four-legged friend! We're here to cheer you on as you navigate every twist and turn together, turning individual challenges into shared victories.

This event is your platform to showcase the incredible journey you and your dog embark on every day."

Mark Menze, Chief Executive Officer, adds:

"Every registration, every cheer, every dollar raised brings us closer to our $100,000 goal. This is more than a target; it's a lifeline for countless animals in need of care and a forever home."

Register as part of a team or take on the challenge solo with your four-legged partner. We're excited to welcome over 1,000 participants to the vibrant event village, buzzing with dog-related vendors, and a smorgasbord of food and drink options.

Hear it from our past participants:
"I've never seen Scout so happy; she had a blast! From start to finish, we had an absolute ball of a day, literally in some cases."
"The event was so good that even though I've done some significant trail races this year, all I can keep talking about is Adventure Dog!"
Don't miss out on this unique blend of adventure and companionship. Register today, set your personal challenge, and let's triumph together!
