However participants will have the opportunity to donate half of any personal sponsorship to a charity of their own choosing and thus share in the proceeds of their own fund raising.

The event includes both long (26 mile) and short (8 mile) runs arranged to suit all age, capability and fitness levels.

Basic facilities will be provided at key points during the run, and refreshments will be provided as part of the registration fee after the event at our facilities at Udny Green.

Help the Haddo Hounds! 14 Aug 2014


This weekend we’re getting ready to start a fantastic new project at Haddo- something to keep our four-legged visitors entertained…

We’re looking for volunteers to come along on Saturday and help us start building a new permanent agility trail in the dog park.

Eventually the new trail will include weaves, jumps, tunnels and a walk along, and the more people who come along on Saturday the more we can build! We’ll be in the dog park from 10am to around 4pm, but you can join us all day, a couple of hours or as long asyou can manage. We’ll provide all the equipment as well as tea, coffee and biscuits, you just need to bring some elbow grease and sensible clothes you don’t mind getting a bit of paint on.
