New for Waggy Walks 2011: two new walks and running your own

It's getting to the time of year when we grab our trainers and head out to a local park to have a healthy stroll and raise money for dogs. This year the big date is October 2nd.

In case you're new to Waggy Walks, it's an annual sponsored walk with both 5k and 10k route options, so anyone can join in.

You simply find your nearest walk, register and set about getting people to sponsor you. Dogs are welcome but anyone, owner or not, can take part and creative costumes are also great, though not required.

This year we've added two new walk locations - Stockton-on-Tees and Canterbury - to bring the total up to twelve, and the option to set up your own walk if you're not near one. So you could even do a walk if you're not in the UK, although if that's the case please drop us a line before you do.

Can't make it, not able to set up your own but still want to show your support? There's always the option to sponsor our mascot dog. This year it's golden oldie Barnes, who's determined to beat the £4,235 raised by Otis in 2010.

Everything you need to know is on the Waggy Walks website, so please do register and come and join us in making it the biggest, best event yet.
