The Wimbledon Guild Waggy Walk is back!
This year the walk is taking place virtually between Monday 28th September – Monday 5th October.
You can walk anytime, anywhere during the event dates - it's Your Waggy, Your Way!
We have lots of great new features, as well as some changes to make sure the event is Covid-safe.
This year instead of buying a ticket, we are asking for minimum donations of £10 to take part. All money raised will help Wimbledon Guild support those in need in Merton.
You can choose to do any route or distance that suits you, or you can do the suggested 4km or 7km Waggy Walk route from previous years - maps are available for you to download below.
Pet Pavilion goodie bag!
Our event sponsors Pet Pavilion are once again providing their popular goodie bags for every dog for whom a donation of at least £10 is given.
After you've made your donation, we'll send you a Waggy Walk confirmation email with all the event details.
Hand in Hand
The wonderful Hand in Hand pub is offering all walkers a free tea/coffee or a soft drink for completing the walk (you will need to show the bar staff your confirmation email of your £10 donation).
New for 2020, we're giving you the opportunity to Meet & Greet our new mascot, Waggy!
