YKC running challenge

We are asking all Young Kennel Club members to take part in our running challenge during the months of May and June. So it’s now time to start a new challenge with your dog/s and pick up the pace to see if you could be in with a chance to win a runners prize!

The challenges are as follows:

  • Under 12’s join in the one mile challenge
  • Over 12’s  join in the 5k challenge
  • Over 17’s  join in the 10k challenge

You can take lots of short runs with your dog/s over the duration of the next 2 months. For those new to running, why not sign up to the couch to 5k so you can gradually reach your target. Once completed we will send you a YKC Running Challenge certificate and enter you into a draw to win a Fitbit and a £100 Argos Voucher
