Tough Woofer is this weekend! - East Cheshire Hospice

Tough Woofer is this weekend!

If you want to take your dog for a walk on Sunday (Oct 20) then Tough Woofer is the perfect outdoor exercise.

Entries will be accepted on the day for the 5k obstacle course through the grounds of Capesthorne Hall.

The first wave leaves at 10 am with dogs facing a series of fun obstacles, including climbing challenges and mud and water tests.

The event is organised by East Cheshire Hospice which is setting up a Charity Village with live entertainment, shopping stalls, canine activities and refreshments.

Guests of honour will be beagles Roxy and Harley whose faces have been used in banners and billboards to promote the event.

The dogs, owned by Abigail Henshall and partner Steve Abraham, won a Facebook competition run by the charity.

Beth Candy, Events Manager at the Hospice, said: “We’ve had plenty of entries and there’s still room for more because it’s such a wonderful large venue. People must be eight and over to tackle the course and dogs one or over.”

The fee is £35 for a dog/owner, and £25 for people only. Go to
