Covering the West Pennine Moors and Wigan area, I offer a range of courses in canicross, from the complete beginner, to the more advanced social trail runs. I am a DogFit qualified canicross instructor, and my passion lies in helping people discover the joy of running with their dogs.

I have always run lead-free with my older dog Bella, but since getting a younger rescue dog I have been introduced to the benefits of canicross running in particular, as it’s the perfect way to exercise her safely, without fear of her chasing all the sheep and deer they have on the moors here, as well as helping her utilise all that energy! It has also proved a fantastic way for us to bond quickly, and she especially enjoys parkrunning with me.

Upcoming social runs

Social pack runs are on most Sunday mornings. They are great fun, and are always at a very easy pace, exploring a different route each week. The dogs love being somewhere different, socialising with the other dogs, and their owners seem to enjoy it too!
