Runners and pooches slog their way through Battersea’s Muddy Dog Challenge

Model David Gandy swapped the runway for a mud-soaked obstacle course on Saturday as he took part in an annual Battersea Dogs & Cats Home event in Windsor Great Park.

The 37-year-old Battersea ambassador completed the Muddy Dog Challenge with his dog Dora, who was adopted from the charity.

The day saw runners complete a 2.5km or 5km course alongside their pet pooch, as they crawled, jumped and climbed over obstacles along the way.

David said: “I can’t decide who enjoyed the mud more, me or Dora! She has become a special part of the family and I couldn’t imagine life without her.

“I’m so grateful to Battersea for the support they gave her. It’s been a great day to raise money for the charity, who continue to help other animals like Dora”.

Actresses Rosie Marcel, of Holby City, and Joanna Scanlan, well-known for her appearances in The Thick of It, were also among the participants raising funds for the charity which has a home in Old Windsor’s Priest Hill.
