Did the race in 2023
It was a good event shame about the heat and the low sunset both things out of your control The decision to adapt to the smaller distance was a really good call
Did the race in 2023
I did enjoy the curse, however I didn't like the part where there was no patch, just grass on the field as there was a lot of holes and easy to twist the ankle, so it wasn't the safest route. The organisation was very good. Atmosphere could have been better It was very quiet and I think it would be nice if you play at the start or to have someone on the speakers to boost up everyone's endorphin level. It was my second race with you and I will definitely come back and recommend it to my friends. Thank you

Course would have been better to have avoided so much tarmac was more than I thoughtBut all good 👍

Great event, beautiful location.

The swim felt a bit chaotic due to nervous humans and dogs that had perhaps never swam with a dog before. Unfortunately, the race Director threw 2 round small bouys linked together with a rope into the water to entice the nervous dogs infront of me. Unfortunately my collie thought they were balls and retrieved it on us entering the water. Further on, this then got tangled up in our harness which then got tangled in the large bouy where we turned around to swim back. Although two kayakers paddled towards me, I didn't feel they knew how to help but neither me or my dog could move for about 2 minutes in mid swim. Luckily I was able to untangle everything eventually. I think what was missing for this one was the dog practice swim as this allows competitors to see how their dogs react to swimming rather than in the race itself where things felt a bit unsafe due to these unexpected Incidents. Please keep doing the dog events though Endorphin Sport. You are brilliant. This particular race and course just needs a review and to be made better that's all. It was also a shame about the heat and the feelings put forward in the briefing about it being too hot for running with the dogs.

Lack of briefing before the race, my supporters ended up waiting at the wrong finish line. Otherwise beautiful venue and route and I had the best day!

Amazing day!

First time canicross run for our two dogs, they loved it and so did we. Really well run event and we liked having our own start time and plenty of space around us as we ran. Good atmosphere pre and post race, friendly staff, and the dogs looked so proud wearing their medals after! Would definitely recommend to other owners whose dogs enjoy running, as ours do.

Fantastic venue and really well organised woth a few bliss but to be expected. Friendly and really inclusive

Overall the event was a fantastic experience. It was our firs time doing an official cani-cross event and we had a brilliant experience. We did try to download the GPX for the 10km route, but unfortunately the first link sent us to a route 70km away, and the second one we found didn't seem to work at all. That being said, it wasn't really needed as the signage was pretty good, well marshalled and everyone was incredibly encouraging. There was only one point in the course, coming over a hill up to a road where we weren't 100% sure which direction to run, but we worked it out. The showers provided were hot and clean, there were good food offerings and the doggo treat stall was especially good. Overall it was a really well run event, really well thought out, loads of water around for the pooches and the dog physio was a brilliant addition. We will definitely attend again!
