What better way to have a bit of fun with your 4 legged friend than rolling around and climbing through the mud, ponds and bogs of Celtic Camping?
The Dirty Little Mutts is an opportunity to experience a mud run with your dog! Its great fun, a good source of exercise for you and your canine and all for a great cause; to raise money for Greenacres Animal Rescue.
The Run will be approximately 5k and will see you run or walk around some of the most spectacular coast line North Pembrokeshire has to offer with great views of Abereiddy Bay. You’ll find yourself waist height in ponds, knee height in bogs and climbing under and over obstacles all accompanied by your furry best friend.
All dogs will have to be kept on non-extension leads. This is due to safety issues such as tripping, other dogs and as it is a rural location we can not rule out wildlife and livestock being nearby.
Although we encourage you to give all the obstacles a go there will always be an option to go around or miss something if you or your pet doesn’t fancy it.
Each competitor will get an event specific T-shirt included in the price.
(£20 of each entry fee will go to the Greenacres charity, we do this so that people do not have to worry about fundraising and just entering will benefit this great cause. Although if you want to fundraise separately please do and you can do this yourself or contact Greenacres separately)

About Greenacres
Greenacres is nestled within the green rolling hills of the gorgeous Pembrokeshire countryside. Driving up the sanctuary’s winding driveway, you notice the crafted wooden fence work, carefully outlining luscious green pastures, containing happy, contented animals, and you get the sense you are entering a homely environment.
This is because Greenacres is sanctuary for the animals it opens its doors and hearts for. Many animals have been subjected to extreme cruelty, abandonment and neglect, and Greenacres’ dedicated staff and volunteers set to work immediately in order to bring the animals back health and happiness.
Some of the animals that come to Green Acres can not be re-homed, and therefore become part of the surroundings. Greenacres is more than a sanctuary for some, it is quite literally their forever home.
As a self funded sanctuary they survive on donations and goodwill. For the full story visit their website here.

Mud Runs are getting more and more popular and the following questions, answers and hints may help you in your preparation to make the event more enjoyable or decision as to whether the mud run is for you!

Q. How fit do you have to be?

A. We don’t mind if you walk or run the course but you have to be fit enough to cover 5 miles cross country, whilst climbing under and over obstacles and wading through mud and ponds. It is tough but achievable!

Q. What are the obstacles?

A. The obstacles are mainly all natural, and the man made ones are designed to blend in to the rural environment. The main thing to remember in your preparation is that the obstacles are not technical so you should be able to manage them all. However if you do not fancy any particular obstacle there is always an option to pass on it!

Q. What training should I do?

A. As with anything you should train for what you are going to be doing, therefore we strongly recommend you should incorporate the following into your training plans; Cross Country Running, some strength training and cold water/muddy bog training to acclimatise. You do not want the day of the event to be your first experience of the Mud and Cold! For further tips and plans please contact us.

 Q. What is the difference between The May Run and The December Run?

A. Well the obvious is the temperatures! But don’t let that fool you we have had mild December Runs and Cold May Runs, it doesn’t matter which one you sign up for you have to be prepared for inclement weather and the ponds will be chilly whatever the month. But as a rule you can expect the December course to be Wetter, Muddier and colder. The May one is a little bit longer, a bit more climbing and more chance of getting nettle stings

Q. How do we prepare for the cold?

A. We have had hypothermia cases at our mud run events and the vast majority of these have come about once runners have crossed the line. We recommend that you train for the cold but also have a finishing plan, of having loose fitting warm clothing, towel, hat and gloves to wear and easy to hand. For further details please ask.
