Limited group runs

Hi Runners!

Now that some Covid 19 restrictions have been revised we are organising limited group runs on facebook.

These runs will have staggered start times and different meeting points.  Each group is limited to Max 6 people so group leader plus 5 others.  George will post up a run, group leaders will comment their start time and location and a distance/pace.  Anyone wishing to join a group must reply to the specific group leader’s post.  The group leaders will edit their post when the group is full.

During the runs please try to maintain a respectful 2m distance.

There will be no club kit available, so please bring your own equipment.  Also remember to bring water for the pups and for yourself as it’s dry out there and we can’t share.

See you out there!

Covid-19 Coronavirus Update

Dear All

It is with much regret we are going to have to suspend club runs for the next few weeks while this situation unfolds, we will review end of April. The Government guidelines advise against social gatherings. While initially we deemed our runs were low risk due to the environment we run it would be irresponsible to say there was no risk. With Running Clubs currently closing under direction of UKA, and parkruns predicted to close Wednesday (18th) we could potentially see an increase in runners. By taking this action until our review (End of April), if we manage to stop a single transmission that would help the NHS, it will have been worth it.

That does not mean stop Canicrossing, where possible, get out and canicross to maintain your own personal fitness and keep active during this time, while following government guidelines about safe distance and safe exercise environments. Ashridge is quite a large place so you should be able to distance yourself from others and have lovely runs.

Social distancing, as long as you maintain a minumum of 2M it may be possible to run out in small groups, if you need a bit of company to motivate your dog. If you are going to run out with a couple of others, please do it by a group chat rather than the club page.

I know this prob means an early close to the winter running season, but hopefully it’ll be mild enough for us to get out later in the year.

Aussie and I took part in the 10km distance in the beautiful Ashurst, Kent, with spectacular views over the Medway Valley! It was a really well organised event, very friendly and a good mix of both Canicrossers And Dogless Runners!

 

We were promised both mud and hills and they didn’t disappoint! Because of the recent weather conditions we were also blessed with bogland, large fallen trees to hurdle , puddles and harsh crosswinds in open clay fields! All in all a very challenging but rewarding race! We were very pleased to get placed 8th out of 24th in the Female group and 26th of 76 overall! I will be signing up to the full series next year without a doubt.

VOTWO Silva Glow Night Run 5k & 10k– Bedford 29th November 2014

Report by Liz Kirtley

Nice event that allowed canicrossers alongside ‘normal’ runners.  Bella and I did the 5k and had a great time.  Dark and muddy with patchy fog and some nice ‘technical’ hills and turns around the middle section.

The course was well marked and well marshalled.  Bella got a bit freaked by some of the marshal points as they were so well lit it was a bit like approaching some sort of UFO!  All in all though, she was a complete star – especially coping with the very congested start.  Bella and I started right at the back, which turned out to be less than ideal when everyone in front of us stopped to try and avoid the first large wet patch!

Once we got away from the crowds we had plenty of space to enjoy the run (and the muddy puddles) and we both loved it.   Definitely one to do again next year.

Aussie and I challenged ourselves to our very first 10km race and Night Run, and braved a very foggy and 3c night. This is the second year for Canicrossers and it had a great turn out from various clubs and Individuals alike!

The route was undulating, with a few technical turns and hills and pretty muddy but it was marshalled and organised very well, the atmosphere was fun and friendly and definitely one to be done next year, and a great way to meet fellow Canicrossers.

Aussie performed brilliantly, night running is definitely his thing, and we got our first ever race placing with a 3rd in the Veteran Class, nice start to the season!
