Outdoor activities and experiences for you and your dog
The Dog Backpacker provides a variety of events running throughout the year that will get your dogs tail wagging. From walks, mini adventures and even fun runs, we have something for every person and their dog to enjoy.
Come join in with your pooch and take part in the Paras' 10 at Catterick in September. All profits generated from the Paras' 10 are donated to charity SUPPORT OUR PARAS.
A multi-terrain endurance event, the race is held over undulating military land. For security reasons, the route cannot be publicised or accessed prior to event day. There will be water stations located along the route and at the start and finish. The First Aid Station will be located at Race Control with a roving back up facility. You can enter to run or TAB the Paras10 with your dog, all entrants must have a harness for their dog and a waist belt for the human, this is most comfortable for you and your dog and enables hands free running.
TAB stands for Tactical Advance to Battle. The Parachute Regiment challenges you to attempt the 10 Mile 'P' Company Cross Country Route, carrying a bergen (rucksack) weighing 35lb (excluding food water) and wearing long trousers with 'military style' or hiking boots with ankle support. Competitors rucksacks will be weighed before and after the race, by race officials.
Medals (for humans and dogs) and T-Shirts (for humans) will be awarded to all who finish the course. Also a trophy for first male and female finishers with their dog (with a treat for their dog to)
