Winter means more running!

The cooler weather can only mean one thing for us – finally it’s time to head for the hills with our dogs!

If you want to get ready for the new Canicross season, why not check out our September workshops

But what if your heart longs for something more?


Wouldn’t you love to go on a really big adventure with your best friend?

Even if you don’t fancy racing in a big event, or trying to complete an ultra, there’s nothing more glorious than the freedom of plotting a route on the map then running it together.


Don’t let the guidebooks and groups runs restrict you to well-known routes.

Feel the fear of running in a new place, and take control!

Come on our Adventure Challenge and broaden your canicross horizons.

Saturday 13th October at the Yorkshire Cycle Hub (£120/person & up to 2 dogs)

  • 8.30am registration
  • Morning – Attend clinic with a max of 4 people, take a coffee break and then swop round
