ATW Salcey Wet and Wild Canicross 15th January 2023

ATW Salcey Wet and Wild Canicross


The majestic Salcey Forest is a former medieval hunting forest nestled in the Northamptonshire countryside. This magnificent woodland has many miles of ancient wood banks, building remains and ancient trees. The ‘druids’, or veteran oaks, are rare and amazing wildlife habitats, and some of the old oaks are over 600 years old. What better place to hunt down a great run!

The run takes place on a 7.5km loop of trails that wind gently through the woods. It may be flat, but don’t be fooled….there are two ditches to run through, and a guarantee of some mud to challenge you.

By registering you confirm that you and your dog are physically fit to participate. The course includes potential tripping hazards and technical running surfaces, therefore appropriate clothing/footwear must be worn. All dogs taking part must be wearing a suitable running harness attached to a bungee line and waist belt. (Dogs will not be accepted into the event with their leash attached to their collar)
