About

ABOUT ME

I am a canicross coach, based in the Newark and Sherwood forest area on the outskirts of Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire. I run a canicross coaching group, teaching those who are brand new to the sport as well as those looking to develop their running skills with their dogs and embark upon their first races.

 

I am a Cani-Fit trained canicross leader, with over 9 years of experience of running dogs in harnesses. Having strong knowledge of coaching and fitness is important to developing the skills necessary for success. Helping others realise their potential is my passion.​ If you want to work from couch to 5k, or just want someone to teach you more about canicross, then get in touch and we can have a chat.

Our achievements include racing in local events with all three of our dogs, as well as racing in National Championship races with The British Sleddog Sports Federation and ranking top 5 for the last two series. This year we achieved 3rd at a National Championship and have raced as part of Team GB at the World Championships in France.

I have regular training runs covering Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, Bassetlaw and Sherwood, which are open to beginners as well as those with more experience. I offer face to face coaching as well as distance coaching to help you on your canicross journey. We also have a team of volunteers who support our runs.

ENABLING YOU TO GET OUT AND ENJOY MORE WITH YOUR DOG

We love spending time with our dogs and enjoying the great outdoors. One of our biggest satisfactions comes from seeing people really bond and realise that they are capable of more than they first thought.

We have three core beliefs:

1 – Canicross and cani-sport is about much more than being the fastest in the group

2 – If you are up for it, you’ll learn more than you thought you would and discover that you are capable of so much more than you originally thought

3 – It is not about us, it is about you and your own ambitions or goals, our job is to help you reach those goals and enjoy the journey along the way.

Since we began formal classes following lockdown, we have worked with a variety of different people and their dogs. Some have joined for some socialisation, others to get fitter and some joined us just to try something new.

We have worked with over 50 new teams who have been training regularly with us and have been very proud to support them in participating in their first races and events together.

As an inclusive group, we welcome all abilities and backgrounds and will work with you to achieve your own goals.

So far we have had four podiums over two races, but more importantly are the smiling faces we have at the end!

We look forward to helping you explore your potential!

Bikejor explorers

We currently have three bikejor teams that we work with, all of whom have ventured into racing with their dogs.

It is important to ensure that your dog is fit and well and also responds well to you when running on the trail! These guys have it nailed!

National series

This season we have selected races based upon what we think will give our team a good run and different terrain. We are currently racing in the National Championship Series, having secured a 3rd place in the first round. Prior to this we have raced in the terrex race, coming first female and first canicross runner as well as various other events. Our focus has been on training and building strength this season.

Current achievements

Last year we finished 3rd in the National Championships and were able to race in the World Championships in France, where we finished 26th overall in a tough field with some very warm weather.
So far this year we have won the Adidas Terrex race at Grimsthorpe, and achieved 3rd in National Championships, with more to come.
We have training specific to fell, hill, mountain and trail running with England Athletics and hold Level 3 Outdoor First Aid as well as Level 3 Pediatric First Aid.
I also hold a Level 3 certificate as Designated Safeguarding Lead and assist others in developing their safeguarding policies.
This year has seen us feature in various news articles about running with dogs and we hope to continue this in the future.
We have introduced our Instagram channel and TikTok and provide videos to support people and highlight good practice. Alongside this we have increased our offering of classes as well as supported our clients as they explore racing with their dogs.
What a PAWSOME year so far!
