Barking Mad Snowdon Challenge 2023

The Snowdon Challenge was inspired by Jack, a rescued Greek dog, so traumatized by shelter life that he took 9 months before he wagged his tail. Sophie and team are trekking Yr Wyddfa 3 times in one day to raise funds for the forgotten dogs of Greece

The Snowdon Trek was originally inspired by Jack, a rescued Greek dog, who village post lady, Sophie, met on her rounds.

In 2022 on the hottest day on record, Sophie and 6 friends, trekked Snowdon 3 times in one day and raised a massive £10,687 for Jacks old shelter.

On July 17th 2023 Sophie and friends will once again set out at 5am to trek Snowdon 3 times in one day - the equivalent of climbing Mount Olympus! The money raised will fund more dogs to find forever homes and improve the shelter conditions even more for those left behind.

This year were inviting more shelters to join us and send their own teams. Every penny raised will go direct to the shelters and travel companies are invited to sponsor a team from one of their destinations.
