Canicross at Dalby Forest

The hugely popular Canicross takes place at Dalby Forest. Paws, feet and treats at the ready! Everyone's Welcome!

The Dalby Forest Canicross event is a great opportunity for anyone with a dog to try something new. Everyone’s welcome!

Runners take part in a 5k and 10k route through Dalby’s beautiful forest.

With great attendance and positive feedback the event has become a really popular active forest project. It doesn’t matter whether you have never done it before or if you are a pro, Dalby’s Canicross event is inclusive and welcomes all abilities.

Canicross is off-road running with a dog. Dogs wear a harness specifically designed to allow them to pull, the runner wear a belt/harness which allows hands-free running and they’re attached to their dog with a bungee line.

Those who take part report back that the event has helped to improve their overall wellbeing, agree that the event helped them to feel more connected to nature and said that taking part had helped them to improve their dog’s wellbeing too.
