We have a great selection of walking and running challenges for all levels of fitness and dog breeds. Work your way up from our bronze packages to our gold packages in your own time, at your own pace, anytime, any place.

step 2. Download a tracking app
Join our official Strava Paw Runner Club community and download the app on your phone so you can track every exercise you do. It keeps everything in one place and is a great way to meet other people (and dogs) in our pack, offering encouragement and motivational tips.
You can also use fitness trackers such as Fitbit, garmin or Apple Watch as well as other fitness apps to include 'Map My Run' and 'Fitness Pal'
Don't worry if you don't have a phone or fitness tracker, simply keep a diary of each walk and run you do over the month.
Take your challenge
Our challenges run from the 1st of each calendar month to the end of each month. Once you’ve entered, you’ll have the whole month to work towards your distance goal in however many runs or walks you like, in your own time, pace and what fits around your lifestyle. If you smash your challenge within the given timeframe, you will receive a unique medal and your faithful doggy companion will receive a doggy treat as a reward for all your hard work, dedication and determination together.
At the end of the month you will have 14 days to submit your evidence to us as proof of your amazing achievement.
If you are part of our Strava Paw Runner Club, all you have to do us email us the link to your page and we will then verify your activity. If you are using a fitness tracker just send us a screenshot of your monthly report.
For those of you with a tracking diary, just email us your excel spreadsheet of your activity over the month.
