TOGETHER THIS DECEMBER
A happy life is one with your dog in it. At Paw Runner we want to encourage you to live your best possible life with your pooch, full of adventure, love, good health and happiness.
Christmas is a special time of year, but it can be particularly hard for the homeless of our streets as temperatures drop and being surrounded by festive cheer can have a negative effect on their mental health.
No matter how cold or hungry dogs get, they will never leave their masters side, providing their human with warmth, companionship and unconditional love, a bond that can not be broken.
This December we are supporting Dogs On The Streets, who are a fantastic charity who provide support and veterinary care to the homeless communities fur companions.
Paw Runner offers a selection of virtual challenges designed for all fitness levels as a fun way for you and your doggies to get fitter, happier and healthier together.
Whether you are a total beginner or a fitness super star, there is a great selection of challenges suitable for all fitness levels.
This December, help make a positive difference to not only the life of you and your pooch, but also the lives of those less fortunate.
Choose a distance between 3 miles all the way up to 225 miles or opt for a daily step goal this December!

WHICH CHALLENGE IS BEST FOR YOU?
Our Bronze challenges are aimed at beginners, whether that be you or your dog.
It's a great way to start your fitness journey and gradually build your levels of fitness. If you get the exercise addiction bug you can set yourself a final goal and work your way through our Bronze, Silver and then Gold Challenges to reach it.
Our Silver challenges are aimed at intermediates who already have a basic level of fitness and are entering the next stage of your fitness journey.
The Silver Challenges will give you that next fitness goal to work towards and motivate you to get well on your way to smashing tougher challenges.
Our Gold challenges are aimed at you if you have a good level of fitness, but want something to encourage you to go further, harder and faster than before.
The Gold Challenges will keep you focussed and push you that extra mile to reach your goals.
You and your dog are truly fitness gurus at this level!!
how long does it take to complete a challenge?
Each new challenge begins on the first day of the month and ends on the last day of each month. If you finish earlier, that's amazing work! Just email us your evidence once complete, to claim your well deserved finisher goodies
where can I do the challenge?
The beauty of this challenge is that you can do it in your own time, at your own pace, absolutely anywhere! At home, visiting a friend, on holiday, in your local park, woodland or a lovely stroll along the beach.
CAN I enter with more than 1 dog?
Of course! The more the merrier! When you have chosen your challenge there is a dropdown box for you to add as many dogs as you like. Each dog entered will receive a handmade bandana. Each month every design is bespoke to Paw Runner.
I DON'T HAVE A FITNESS APP OR TRACKER
That's not a problem, you can collect evidence by using a fitness tracker app on your phone, any tracker watch, join our Strava club or you can use a good old fashioned pen and paper to record your daily miles. We also provide a tracking sheet that you can download and record you're miles. Just send us a picture of a summary of your months activity to claim your finishers goodies.
CAN I COMPLETE THE CHALLENGE MIXING walking and running?
Yes that's absolutely fine. The main aim of the challenge is to encourage you to get out and active with your pooch. There are some days you will be more energetic than others! As long as you complete your chosen distance, we are happy and you should be very proud of yourselves!
