A club for dog friendly people who want to run, bike and swim with their dog. Organised group runs and activities, and club events in Essex and beyond.
“I started running with my dogs a few years ago around the woods and really enjoyed it. Then I was introduced to Tailrunners and I can only say thank you for welcoming me and my girls Luna and ruby with open arms!
We try to make as many meet ups as we can as the girls so enjoying running along with everyone else and their dogs …I can see how happy they are and that makes me happy so win win!!”
“Seeing how happy it makes Stan is everything.. such a supportive welcoming group“
It is excellent exercise for both you and your dog and builds strong bonds of love and trust between you as you become a team.
We have met some wonderful people and made so many great friends, both two and four legged.It is a privilege to be a small part of such a great group.”
“I joined Tailrunners for a taster event & was hooked immediately!
The sport is incredible for my dog, he loves it & our bond has strengthened even more as we train together.
The group is so friendly & supportive whatever level you are & we love being part of a family getting fitter & faster together!”
It is a great place to build confidence and fitness around other like minded people.
I have felt welcome from day 1 and would definitely recommend to anyone new or experienced.”
As part of this I am getting fitter and most of all I have met some amazing like-minded people who are great fun”
