Hound Hike 2021

The last year has been ruff...

But anything is paw-sible in 2021, now we have been let off the leash!

Over the last 12 months humans have taken part in enough virtual fundraising events, now it’s the dogs turn to have some fun and raise vital pounds for their local hospice!

Dogs all over Cumbria... grab your leads... wag your tail... round up your humans... and join the Hound Hike this August.

Our first Hound Hike is the paw-fect event for dogs of all sizes and ages, as you choose your target distance to walk during the month. Whether you enjoy 50km, 100km or 150km of beautiful walks during August, every paw print and wag of the tail will support local people with life limiting illnesses. If the distances above are too much, dont worry as you can choose your own distance too!

Every walk will count!

From your early morning walk around the block to a long stroll in the park with your canine friends, every time you venture out with your humans you can raise vital funds. So don’t shy away from being a wet dog and get outside come rain, shine or anything else the Cumbrian weather throws at you this summer!

Whether you are a Cocker Spaniel from Carlisle, a Papillon from Penrith or a Whippet from Workington, every dog can have their day and support local people with life limiting illnesses at Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw. Plus, if you are heading off on a vacation this summer you can keep totting up those miles by exploring new walks and parks on your holiday!

Registration is FREE for the Hound Hike, however we are asking every dog and human team to pledge to raise £50 to help local children and adults with life limiting illnesses.

What do my human and I get?
