We can only accept Canicross entries for A Run With No Witty Name and Just For Sh*t & Giggles.. Unfortunately the actual route itself of Beyond The Far Side does not support dogs being on the course.
If you have signed up to enter as a Canicross runner, you agree to abide by the following conditions.
You must have public liability insurance to cover your dog for any third party damage claims. This is often covered by most pet and some household insurance. You will need to bring confirmation of your insurance with you on race day and show it at Registration. Unfortunately if this is not provided we will not issue you with your number and you will be unable to run.
You must have the correct Canicross equipment, your dog should be wearing a harness and be attached to you at all times via a waist belt. Dogs must be kept on the lead at all times during the race, and when in Race HQ both pre and post event. Dogs should not be run in a slip lead, check/choke chain, head collar, flexie lead or any collar that restricts breathing, if a muzzle is required it must be of the wire greyhound racing style. Hand held leads are not permitted when running.
We reserve the right to remove you from the race if we consider your dog to be in distress at any time.
Canicross runners must start at the front of the race field and will start 5 mins before the non dog runners set off.
Canicross runners will not be eligible for any of the main 1st Male/Female prizes. However there will be separate prizes for 1st Male/Female dog-assisted runners
Dogs must be a minimum of 18 months old on the day of the race, in season, pregnant or lactating bitches are not permitted to race. Bitches in Season should be kept well away from the start / finish area and not taken on or near the course if brought to the event.
Dogs should not be brought to the event if they are coughing or have recently been in contact with infectious disease. It is the owners responsibility to ensure their dog is fit and healthy before racing. If in doubt consult your vet.
You must pick up after your dog.
