Seven-year-old Siberian husky, Diesel, is just one of a pack of hounds that will be bringing their owners along to this year’s Chilterns 3 Peaks Challenge.

Returning for its 10th year on Sunday September 9, the Chilterns 3 Peaks Challenge gives participants, both human and canine, the chance to walk a seven, 11 or 20-mile route through the rolling Chilterns countryside, while raising funds for Rennie Grove Hospice Care.

This will be Diesel’s second time at the Chilterns 3 Peaks with his owner, Molly.

Molly said: “We both love walking – or running in Diesel’s case. The main reason that I am doing the walk is to challenge myself, and Diesel is a great motivator.

“We are both determined to finish the 20 miles, although I’m unsure what condition we will be in at the end!”

Transport between the 11 and 20-mile routes and from the end of every route is provided courtesy of Arriva buses, and there will be water points for humans and hounds along each route.
