Barking Mud 2017

You hear Barking Mud and you wonder if it's a typo, well read on and make a decision from there ....


We've talked about the weather a fair bit with regard our events this year, it hasn't been so kind, and this one was no different with Storm Brian doing his worst on the run up, but once again our super amazing team, ensured that everything was ready to go on the day.

Our runners were ready too, and their dogs as it got to 11:00 and it was time to take on our 5 kilometre course which started and finished at our Lincoln Farm Rescue and Rehoming Centre, near Bere Regis.

Around 30 runners took on the challenge, and it is clearly something they would like to repeat again as we were asked again and again, to make sure we had another one next year.

An informal fun event, the entry fee included not just the run, clearly marked with marshalls along the way, but a 2017 medal, a bottle of water for our runners, and not forgetting the dogs, a rosette and goody bag.  The entry fee also included a friendly, informal BBQ with friends and family after the run, with everyone having a great time.

We would like to thank our sponsors Beautiful Joe's who supplied the treats in the doggy bags, and Hugo's Helping Paws who supplied the water for our runners, the rosettes and put all the goody bags together.  We couldn't do what we do without all the help we receive from our sponsors, our staff, and our volunteers on the day and on the run up to it, who make our events such a huge success

So, was it a typo?  Not if you listen to all the runners who completed the course, there was definitely mud, but you weren't mad to be there.

If you are wishing you had entered too, don't worry, we will be doing it all over again next year.  In the meantime here are some pictures from the day, and you can visit our facebook page where our runners have uploaded even more for you to enjoy
