Well done 2019 team!

A huge well done to everyone who took part!

We had amazing people (and animals) helping the Doncaster RSCPA re-homing centre and putting their best "paw" forward to help this great team with fundraising and finding some new homes for their amazing animals!

We will keep you updated when we're back in 2020 :)

What's the challenge and when do we start?


2019's challenge was to "do a mile in their paws" with a 30 mile challenge in 30 days. 

People took on the challenge with walking, jogging, swimming their way to the goal!

We had people do over 250 miles and people competing the 30 miles, so you can go as far as you want. 

Track your progress online; share photos and videos; post updates about the thrills and spills of your challenge AND inspire and support fellow runners.  

See you in 2020, or check out one of our other charities for this year. 

How will I be helping?


RSPCA Doncaster, Rotherham and District Branch is an independent charity dedicated to rehabilitating and re-homing animals that have suffered cruelty and neglect and have been rescued by the National RSPCA’s team of Inspectors. Their aim is to provide quality care and treatment of these animals and send them off to their forever homes to get the life they deserve. By taking part in the challenge, you will be raising awareness and raising funds to provide vital treatment, food and services across the centre and help our animals get their second chance in life. 

I'm ready :)

Meet some of the 2019 team

Kadance, Maisy and Angelica!


These dogs were signed over to us after their family realised they weren’t managing. This is their story:

“We are so looking forward to taking part in this virtual run. We love to exercise little and often, so A Mile in our Paws is a perfect excuse to get our exercise at any opportunity. We love to do a return lap around the paddock at the Animal Centre, which helps us clock up our miles on our run. 

We are an active group of pooches who are always on the go. Taking part in this run means that not only are we keeping fit and healthy but we are raising money for our favourite RSPCA charity whilst we do it.

Donating to the RSPCA would make such a huge difference to our RSPCA family. The Doncaster, Rotherham and District Branch have helped us in more ways than we can imagine. Our previous family was finding it hard to cope, so we were signed over to the care of the RSPCA, who have taken super good care of us. They gave us a vet check, neutered us, treated us for fleas, wormed and microchipped us and now they are trying to find our perfect home.”

Kadance, Maisy and Angelica are only a small part of our team. We offer safety and security to many animals, domestic and wild in their time of need and work tirelessly to make sure that they are re-homed to loving homes. 

We want you to be part of our team, to put your best paw forward and run, jog, trot, skip or dance your way to raising money for all our animals.


Set up your sponsorship page

When you sign up to the event we will prompt you to create a fundraising page, we find this is really effective for you sharing with your friends! However if you missed it you can set one up here :)

Sponsorship page will be back in 2020!

We appreciate technology isn't for everyone ;) so you can download a good old fashioned sponsorship form (perfect for workplace or schools) 

Alice and cooper!

These two gorgeous dogs are brother and sister (cooper and Alice) and were rescued from a puppy farm. They were tiny when they came to us but are ready to move to their new forever home. Cooper was originally out to get in to training for the Virtual Run but he saw his sister and they couldn’t help themselves!  No training was necessary as they just ran for the sheer delight of being in the same place. Try keeping up with a Lurcher…we all stood and watched their training regime as it unfolded in
