5th & 6th November 2022 - Cannock Chase

Returning for a second year, this exciting new venue for Canicross Midlands is in conjunction Forestry England.

This event has a limited number of entries and may close early if the limit is reached.

Based at the Tackeroo Campsite the course is a combination of flat fire break trails and forest trails, due to the current conditions the long course will be a two lap course.

Facilities
Tackeroo is a Class B site with

freely drained hard standing pitches,

running water

rubbish disposal points facilities available on site.

We will be arranging portable toilets for the event.

Note: as this is a forest open fires are not permitted.

Please be aware that this event may be cancelled if extreme weather condition are likely to occur and Forestry England close the forest. This includes heavy snow and high winds that would make the forest dangerous. Cannock Chase is a public venue, whilst we will have plenty of marshals we do not have exclusive use of the trails that we plan to race on.

This event will have Bikejor, Scooter and Canicross, for 1 or 2 dogs. If you are new to racing we also have a Novice class.

The distances are approximate: Long Course is approx 5k, Short Course and Novice are approx 3k, Odds and Bods is 1.5k.

Racing is over two days and prizes will be given for the best combined times. If you'd like to enter just one day that is fine, but you won't be eligible for a prize.
