Explore 4x4 swap 4 wheels for 4 paws and bring East Anglia their inaugural dog 5km Fun Run or Walk!

Outdoor activity, adventure and survival specialists, Explore 4x4, have created a new event for runners, walkers and their four legged canine friends. A 5km off-road fun run or walk through enchanting woodland will be held in support of the local charity, ‘Our Special Friends’.

Inspired by the success of their zombie run in October last year as part of the Halloween event, Quarantine, the team at Explore 4x4 had the idea to create an annual summer fun run, with a twist. “We all love our dogs, and it seemed obvious to marry the fun run with our beloved companions and try to raise awareness and money for a very special charity” comments Debs Turpin, Co Founder of Explore 4x4. Our Special Friends work tirelessly in Suffolk and Norfolk, they take away the worry of pet care when life takes an unexpected turn. They provide a range of support services to help those in need, to continue to enjoy contact with animals during illness, bereavement and other crises.

On 1st July this summer, Explore 4x4 will become Explore Paw x Paw. The 5km route will take place on Explore’s East Anglian 4x4 course on the beautiful Elveden Estate. There will be optional obstacles,making use of the natural woodland terrain as well as a few surprise obstacles created by the team at Explore. There will be no obligation to run, owners and their dogs can enjoy a summers day out with friends and family. The Courtyard Café will be running a barbecue from 10am. Dog treats and human sweets for all entrants will be given at the end as a reward.

Debs comments “above all else our aim is to raise funds for Our Special Friends and for everyone to have a tail wagging, ear flapping jolly good time!”

Tickets vary, with £15 being the price for one man (or woman) and his (or her) dog! £40 a family of four and two dogs. Under 15s go free but must be accompanied by an adult.
