The Great Nundle Dog Race is held every year on the first Sunday in May on the Nundle Recreation Ground. It is the major fundraiser of the Nundle Public School Parents & Citizens Association (P&C) and attracts families and their dogs from the local region as well as the Hunter, Sydney and North Coast.
A good race for the kids to enter with their dog is the first race of the day at 10.30am, the Junior Dog on a Leash. Kids hold their dogs on the lead and line up at the start to run as fast as they can to the end with their dog. This is followed by the children’s running races and sack races.
Other entertainment on the ground and in the school grounds includes a jumping castle, face painting, balloons, show bags and lucky dips to keep them amused all day.
Every event has great prizes for first, second and third which have been donated by local and regional business houses. Most first place prizes include a bag of dog food. A raffle is drawn at the end of the day with great holiday and accommodation prizes.
The P&C would like to thank the local business community for their generous support of the Great Nundle Dog Race.
