Join us in December 2021, fundraising for Candy's Hound Rescue International (formally known as Candy Cane Rescue). They rescue, rehabilitate and rehome hounds and other dog breeds from the meat trade, unethical breeding programmes, illegal racetracks and other terrible situations from countries with little or no animal protections.

Here's what the charity say about themselves:

Candy’s Hound Rescue International works with different rescues and shelters in China. When greyhounds are found in the meat trade or underground racing tracks, we are notified and step in to take care of them.

Dogs come to us in appalling conditions. Many have been beaten and starved and almost all have been crammed into tiny cages often with many other dogs.

We have a network of trusted and caring vets in China who assess our dogs and treat them. Mosts dogs have injuries (sometimes these are major), as well as skin conditions and illnesses (most commonly, distemper).

Our vets can be hundreds of miles away from our kennels so a severely injured dog may stay there for months to recover, and then be neutered, before we can fly them to Beijing.

The cost of vet treatment is astronomical, but it is absolutely necessary. Sadly, some dogs are so ill that they never make it to our boarding kennels.

Once the dogs arrive at our boarding kennels they are on their way to the life they deserve! Any kennel we use must have heating, air con and a private dog walking park. They are given beds, toys and lots of affection to help their rehabilitation.

As soon as they are able, we prepare the dogs to travel to our Rescues in USA, UK or Europe. Paperwork is arranged (which is different for each country) and flights are booked once they funds can be raised.  This process can take a long time and we rely on the commitment and effort of the Chinese advocates we work with.

Many of our dogs go to America as they can leave China one month after a rabies vaccine rather than after three months to the UK and Europe.

Before the dogs can be adopted, they are fostered by experienced families. During this process we help the dog adjust to their new country and a new way of life within a family home. We access their needs and this help us match the dog to their perfect forever home.

From start to end, the process can take many months depending on factors including the dog’s condition, the country we’re flying them to and the adoption process. During this time our rescues are transformed, from scared and sometimes scarred dogs to loving, curious and playful pets.

How this works: 5km, 10km & Half Marathon entry

1 - Your entry number should be attached and you can choose to print this out or simply keep it as a record of your entry number for when you submit your time. Please could you quote this number when you submit your times.

2 - You complete your race at a location of your choice anytime between the 1st and 31st December 2021, making sure you capture the proof with a screen shot of an app on your smart phone, or a photo of your GPS watch as evidence of your time, the distance completed and the date completed.

3 - To ensure you receive your medal you need to submit your evidence to either this e-mail: [email protected] or on the Facebook Group: K9 Trail Sports no later than 7 days after the end of the month.

4 - You will then receive your medal posted to the address submitted when you entered. All 5km, 10km and Half Marathon entries will count towards the championship table in each of the 3 disciplines and the quickest individual submission in 2021 for each distance in each discipline will win a prize at the end of 2021.

Additional information for Any Distance Entry

For the Any Distance Entry submission, please choose the furthest distance in one run you have covered in the month you have entered. If you could submit them in the same way as the regular distances, we will add them to the leaderboard based on distance first, then time (if more than one person has the same mileage at the end of the year then the time will determine the champion).

All Any Distance Entry submissions will count towards the championship table in each of the 3 disciplines and the top team (person and dog/s) covering the furthest distance throughout the year will win a prize at the end of 2021.

So if you choose to only enter 4 months through the year, then only those 4 months will count. To give yourself the best chance of winning the Any Distance championship then you should submit your furthest distance for as many of the 12 months as you can.

Many thanks again for your entry and we hope you enjoy your virtual race! :-)
