Join us in Halifax for a unique race on the trails of Long Lake Park. You get the choice, one race or two. Participants can choose a single lap run of 3 km, or they can step up and take on the challenge of the two lap 6km race.
All racers will start in the first 3km race (a two up start system will be used). You can then choose to take on the challenge of doing a second 3 km loop once the first race is finished. The champions of the double race format (based on combined time) will get a unique custom hat!
We offer a Discovery Class Run (2km out and back) as well for younger dogs, runners or people anyone that wants to try canicross with a shorter run.
MAHDS series points are on offer for all races.
All proceeds from this race will be donated to the Disaster Animal Response Team of Nova Scotia (DART). You can check out their organization here: DART NS
