    Participate In Canicross Race With Your Dog

    Special Interest: Running

    Canicross is trail running or cross country running with your dog. Dogs are usually strapped to the runner with a hands free leash and harness. Dogs run in front and actually pull the runner forward. While this sport is very popular in the UK, it is just taking off in the US. Be a leader of the pack and get started with canicross!

    Remember your dog is actually pulling you in front so you should have good command of your dog at all times and train him properly to follow a straight line, or at least to stick to the pathway! That means no squirrel chasing.

    Submit a picture or video of your dog with your bib or race signage! Tell us about your experience. Competitions must be designed for dogs and humans. The competition must be sponsored by an organized group.
