Instead of recommending specific trails, in the Global Challenge we recommend different types of trails, terrain, and distances for each activity. Some activities can even be done in your own neighborhood, others on trails near your home. Participants use the instructions from each activity as their guide to pick a suitable local trail or route in town to complete each Challenge activity.

Each of the Global Challenge’s 10 activities have a walking option and a running option to choose from. This Global Challenge is open to adults and their dogs anywhere in the world.
