Mark your calendar!!
Tell your dog to get ready!!
You have been putting in the training. Now is the time to see if the hard work has paid off!
The CaniCross Championships is the culmination of our Winter/Spring CaniCross season. This all day event will be highlighted with several events including a 3.5 mile and 7.0 mile morning event and a 1.5 mile afternoon event.
Even if you are just dipping your paw into the world of CaniCross, no worries, this CaniCross Exclusive event will give you the opportunity to test your and Rover's fitness against other like-minded, pet loving runners/walkers. Whether you have a distance dog or a sprinter, there is an event for you!
After you have competed, plan on staying and enjoy food for both you and your dog and the company of fellow CaniCross athletes!
If you're wondering what CaniCross is then you're not alone. This is one of the fastest growing sports that one can do with their dog. It derives from the sport of dog mushing but you are working as a team with Rover. It's very much a team effort. While you can certainly participate and just run with your dog, the idea behind CaniCross is that the dog is actually pulling you while you are running. This sport has gained a lot of popularity across Europe and is gaining popularity here in United States and Canada. The only thing required is a dog harness, gangline, and CaniCross belt. To get a better idea of what CaniCross is about watch this video!
CaniCross Championship Events*:
10:30 a.m. -- 3.5 mile and 7.0 mile run event
1:00 p.m. -- 1.5 mile run event
*Times and event order subject to change.
Awards will be determined by size of the dog (under/over 80 lbs) and then broken into female and male open, master, and super master categories (owner).
We want this to be a fun experience for both you and your pet so we encourage you to come out and try out this sport. While it can be competitive we just want everyone to have fun, no matter what level you or your pup are.
