Dalby Forest Canicross #1

Canicross is the sport of cross country running with dogs, it is dog powered, so they are harnessed , attached to the human and run in a team. The human is the driver, directing the dog from behind with voice commands. Canicross not only is a great method to get a human and a canine fit but works the dog's mind and allows them to use their brain in a work mode.

Dalby's Canicross event is a great opportunity for everyone with a dog to try something new. It doesn't matter whether you have never done it before or if you are a pro, Dalby's Canicross event is new exciting and in a beautiful location. Dalby Forest is located on the southern slopes of the North York Moors National Park covering over 8,000 acres of woodland including cycle routes, play areas for children, barbecues for the family and plenty of cycling and walking trails for all abilities.

The course is a one loop 5k starting on the Elleburn trail for those who know Dalby. This is a great opportunity for a fun Sunday morning in Dalby Forest with your friends, family and canine buddies! All abilities welcome.

With your entry you will get free entry to Dalby, a 'paw' part collectors medal, treats for your dog and water provided.

On site there will be first aid and an on call vet available for emergencies.

The race will have a staggered start with the first runner going at 9.30am. Each entrant will be given a timeslot as runners will start every 20 seconds rather than a mass start!
