Wagathon for PTSD UK


The challenge

The annual Wagathon® event is set to take place this August and we’d love for you and your pooch to get involved to support PTSD UK!

You do not want to miss what is set to be one of our most fun fundraising events of the year – the WAGATHON®!

This new annual challenge is set to be huge with fundraisers across the UK challenging themselves and their pooches to complete a 9K walk during the August Bank Holiday Weekend – all whilst wearing their new PTSD UK dog bandana of course!


The details

Event TypeWalk or Run
Date25th to 28th August 2023
Registration Fee£12.50
Fundraising TargetWhatever you can


The route

You can do your walk with your doggo anywhere you fancy with your family, friends or even other dog owners, and you might do your favourite route, or explore a new walk together!

We are relying on the honour system for the mileage for this Wagathon® – there is no need to ‘prove’ to us that you completed the 9k with your K9, and you can do your walk all in one go, or spread it across the Bank Holiday Weekend.
