Important news regarding entries – 20 Dec 23:

Due to an error, our entry system has allowed us to take more entries for the Groggy Doggy than we have capacity for. Unfortunately, this means we have had to cancel a number of entries and will issue refunds to those who registered above our capacity limit.

Those affected have been emailed so please check your inboxes and junk folders.

We sincerely apologise to those who we have had to disappoint, but we need to ensure we provide a safe and enjoyable experience for participants.

Refunds will be processed as soon as we can.

The race will be going ahead as planned – this is not an event cancellation.
