Tails ‘n’ Trails 5K Canicross Fun Run


CANICROSS 5K Fun Run Lough Key Forest Park, 19th May.

Tails ‘n’ Trails in association with Canicross in Ireland will be holding a Canicross Run/Jog/Walk 5K event in Lough Key Forest Park, Boyle, Co. Roscommon on Saturday 19th May. The Fun Run will start at 6pm, in order to provide the best temperatures for the runners and their dogs. An appropriate harness (shoulder or x-back) must be worn by the dog, and the dog must be on a lead with a bungee in it. The club has a number of harnesses and some leads that can be borrowed, but these are in short supply, so if you need to borrow equipment, please let us know as soon as possible. Whilst it is best that the dog is attached to the runner by a waist belt, as we want to encourage people who may be new to the sport to get out there and be involved, for this event, we will allow leads to be hand held.

The Run is being held during the club’s AGM fun weekend, with lots of other activities planned, and camping on site (extra charge). It will be €5 entry fee for non club members, or €10 for a family of 2 adults and one junior. However, club membership fees are half price until September, when the new club season starts, so to join the club and avail of all of the weekend’s activities, is €7.50 per person, €12.50 for a couple, or €15 for a family. There is no entry fee to the Fun Run for club members.

There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd in mens, womens and junior classes, and of course goody bags for all entrants.

Numbers are limited, so please get your entries in as soon as possible. Entries to the Fun Run will be accepted up until 5pm on the day, but obviously we cannot guarantee that will still be spaces available at that time.
