Canicross Racing on Sunday
The second race of the Canicross Ireland National & Provincial Championships 2016/2017 will take place this year in Lough Key Forest Park on Sunday the 18th December.
Canicross is the sport of running off-road with your dog. The human participant wears a waist belt which attaches via a 2-metre bungee line to a padded dog harness.
As the Lough Key event is taking place the week before Christmas, the organisers have decided it will be a Santa Run.
Spot prizes will be given for best dressed!
Remember, you have to dress up for the event, preferably as Santa as it is a Santa Run!
Dogs can be dressed up so long as they’re comfortable with what they’re wearing and they will not be allowed to wear their outfit when competing!

~ Bikejoring (Male)
