Explore Paw x Paw, the five-kilometre dog fun run in support of the Dogs Trust, will appear at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire on March 10.

Explore 4×4, the organiser of the event and outdoor activity, adventure and survival specialist, has created the new event for runners, walkers and their four-legged canine friends.

The run will be raising funds and awareness for the Dogs Trust and will be consist of two courses, an easier route and a tougher route, making use of the natural woodland terrain as well as the 4×4 off road course.

Debs Turpin, co-founder of Explore 4×4, commented: “We all love our dogs, and it seemed obvious to marry our love for outdoor activities with our beloved companions and invite dog lovers to enjoy the beautiful surroundings of our off-road course at Stoneleigh Park.

“It should be gloriously muddy in March and let’s face it, everyone loves an opportunity when it is acceptable to get covered in mud! Or, if you would prefer a more relaxing approach, take on our flatter, gentler, grassier route instead of the tough one.”
