Waggy Races is a cross country 5k fun run for you to compete alongside your dogs.

Waggy Races is a cross country fun run for you to compete as a team with your dogs. The 12th Waggy Races will take place on the shores of Strangford Lough at the beautiful National Trust Property Mount Stewart.

This will be a 5k fun run on the new trail paths of the 1,000 acre Estate, taking in the Mount Stewart mansion, lake and Temple of the Winds, all with beautiful views across Strangford Lough.

With around 250 dogs competing to be on top of the podium, it’s set to be quite a spectacle. Enter as a runner/jogger or walker with 1 or 2 dogs or in a pack (2 people /1 dog).

While you’re at the race you can visit one of our fantastic stalls – including the legendary Murphy’s Barkery, Robin Bates Dog Training Services and Hiker Hounds, with their fantastic range of dog apparel and pet portraits. If you’re feeling peckish or need a caffeine fix, there’s also a fantastic café (with dog friendly outdoor seating area).

* Race entry includes admission to Mount Stewart, goody bags & prizes (no entries can be accepted on race day).

Visitors to Mount Stewart can also explore the recently renovated mansion and world class Spanish and Italianate gardens (recently voted as one of the top ten gardens in the world), the beautifully landscaped grounds surrounding the picturesque lake walk and the miles of new walking trails. The trails take in stunning views of the Temple of the Winds, magical woodland and farmland, all set within an iconic rolling drumlin landscape beside Strangford Lough.
