As you know, looking after the planet is one of our missions very close to our hearts, to ensure we have a wonderful planet for every human, animal, creature and plant to enjoy for billions of years to come!
For every walking, running and paddling challenge that you enter, we will plant a tree on your behalf. So you are providing new homes for wildlife, jobs for local tribes and fresh oxygen.

You guys truly are PAWSOME!
GOT TOO MANY MEDALS?
Opt to swap your medal to feed a rescue pooch
There are a record number of dogs waiting for their forever homes in rescue centres across the UK. Some of this is caused by the effect of the covid pandemic.
With the cost of living increasing there is added pressure for animal rescue centres as they look after all the dogs in their care to make sure they are fed, kept warm, exercised and any medical needs tended to.
When you enter your challenge, you can choose to receive your bespoke Paw Runner medal or feed a rescue dog.
When you have smashed your challenge and sent us your evidence, we will donate dog food to a dog rescue centre in need on your behalf.
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!
