Resources for canicrossers (requested by our Sept workshop attendees)

Two more successful canicross workshops done - but it was super hard work for me and Laura since we were running dogless *arrrgh*

A wee selection of pictures from our hard working teams:









A few folk were asking for resources and links so here they are....

Want to repeat a workshop, or move up a level? We never repeat the Improvers sessions exactly so you're guaranteed to come away having learned something new every time!

Sunday 25th November
  • 10am Intro Workshop
  • 2pm Improvers Workshop

Tuesday 16th October, 7pm
You DON'T have to be super fit or running far to join in, but you WILL need a headtorch!

Book individual weeks, or grab the whole block and use this code COMMITEDCANI-X to get one session free!

Renting Kit for Classes: we are exploring options to allow you to borrow/hire kit for classes if you don't yet have your own! £5 per class, or £10 per week to take it home. If the kit is returned damaged you would have to pay for full replacement.
