Route description
Route description

This is a lapped course with 10K participants completing two laps, while 5K runners will complete a single loop.

The Bedgebury Forest is a truly epic place to compete and the race will take place along the naturally undulating tracks/trails within the woods. Flanked by towering trees and making your way over exposed tree trunks, this is the perfect event for yourself and your canine partner.

Runners will set off in waves of 10 with 1 minute time slots between each.

Logistics and schedule

Schedule:

1030: Canicross begins

Please arrive at least 30 minutes before the race begins in order to complete the registration process.

There will be a prize-giving ceremony approximately 45 minutes after the first runner has completed the race.

Spectators

This is a great event for spectators who can enjoy the striking woodland surroundings while cheering on the canicross competitors.

The looped nature of the course means supporters can be there for the two most crucial stages - the start and the finish.

Volunteers

If you are interested in volunteering, then there are a variety of roles available from marshalling to helping with event set-up.

As gratitude, volunteers are offered free entry to a future Nice Work race and, in some cases, expenses are available. If you like the sound of this, please contact: [email protected]
