Running with us

During the canicross season (main events between September and May) we have training runs at least weekly.  These are lead by experienced canicross runners in a variety of locations.  

 

The most up to date information is on the Wessex Canicross Facebook Group – this is where details of the locations and times of weekly runs will be posted.

 

  • Sunday mornings – this is normally the main club run for the week.  Normally a long and short run option, and enough time for a chat afterwards!  Off road, muddy, all weathers! Everyone welcome. 
  • Weekday evenings – club members often organise runs together during the week on a more 'ad hoc' basis - keep an eye on the Facebook group for info about these too.
  • Many of us run Parkrun on Saturday mornings all year round. The ones we frequent are Southwick Country Park (Trowbridge) and Montacute House (Yeovil), with many club members setting PB's on the Montacute course!  Both of these Parkruns allow runners with dogs, but you do need a short line and to be considerate to the other runners!

 

We are a friendly club, and we're keen to encourage a supportive and welcoming atmosphere at all club activities.  We train for fun, so we welcome friendly competitive spirit, but expect everyone to have regard for other's enjoyment – and to look out for others around them, help others when needed, and add to the positive atmosphere.  We are inclusive to all.

 

Non members are welcome to join us for a maximum of 3 runs a season as a guest.

 

Please ensure that you, and your dog, are in good health.  Let us, and your fellow runners, know of any medical conditions that you feel may affect you on club activities.  All participants in club activities are expected to take reasonable regard for their own and other's safety.  

 

Juniors (Under 18s) are welcome to join us – under 14s must run with a parent or guardian whilst taking part in club activities, and under 12s must run with a secondary line attached to the dog and their accompanying adult in case of emergency.

 

All participants in club activities are required to have their own public liability insurance for themselves and their dogs. All runners run at their own risk during club activities, and the club accepts no liability for injury or loss to participants or their dogs.
