Waggy Races is a cross country fun run for you to compete alongside your dogs!

Waggy Races is a 5k fun run where you can enter as a runner/jogger or walker with 1 dog, with 2 dogs or in a pack (2 people /1 dog).

Castle Ward was a major filming location for Game of Thrones®. The 5km course starts in front of the Mansion and loops round the lawn before joining the trail towards Strangford Lough via Winterfell. The route will follow the shoreline, pass Rob Stark’s camp (Audleys Castle) the hanging tree before passing into the forested trails, skirting past the Kings Road and eventually back up the hill towards the mansion.

* Race entry includes admission to Castle Ward, goody bags & prizes (no entries can be accepted on race day). With 250+ dogs set to compete to be on top of the podium, it’ll be quite a spectacle on the beach that day!
