Neil and Toby at Thetford Trials

It’s Sunday, 25th October and the morning sun is shining on the start line of the Inspire Races Get Running 10K at Thetford Forest.  My sprocker Toby and I are signed up for the canicross wave and will be among the first runners taking part.  I’m having a last...

Tri-Dog Event 26-27 September 2020

It was an early start, leaving at 6 am to arrive for 8 am ahead of registration. Once I arrived, Kali and Asha, my Siberian husky twin sisters wanted a walk, so we took a little walk around the campsite to check things out. It was their 5th birthday the day before...

Tridog 2020 with Natalie and Skye

Last weekend Syke and I attended the Tridog event at Box End in Bedford and we took part in our first official canicross event.  During the last few months of lockdown, we have tried to increase our fitness levels ready for the canicross season and we have really...

Four Paws, Two Feet, One Team

Back in February 2019, I approached Tailrunners knowing nothing about canicross. They suggested I met them over Hockley Woods and come and see what it was all about. So off I went with Oreo intending just to take him for a walk. We got met by a lovely lady who put...

My First Checkendon Challenge – Tony & Fred

Checkendon Challenge Advertised as “The best trail in the UK and loved by all”, this was an event that interested me. I had seen a few videos from this event, and it looks stunning (And scary if you have never done bikejor). I was in 2 minds about entering, as it’s...

The road to my first pup powered parkrun

I have tried to like running several times over the last 7 years, and failed.  I have done couch to 5k several times, but always stopped after, through injury or hating it still and never finding the magic that I see 'every' other runner found. "It clears your...

Red Kite Cani Trail 2019 Review by Sam & Peggy

Well it seems like an age ago that I signed up (fairly early on in our canicross journey) to this amazing looking event somewhere in Wales, it was in fact nearly a year ago I think! I remember having all these grand plans of training up hills and getting myself and...
