Are you and your beloved canine companion looking for a fun, new adventure? Look no further than Barkrun at Tamar Lakes! Taking place every Saturday, Barkrun offers a fantastic way to introduce both you and your furry friend to the exhilarating world of Canicross.

For those unfamiliar, Canicross is not just running with your dog. Canicross is the fast-growing sport of off-road hands-free running with your dog. Not only is it the most fun way for you and your dog to get fit, but the two of you will build a special bond that is unparalleled. Originating in Europe as off-season training for the sledding community, it has rapidly grown into a stand-alone sport in its own right.

Ready to Run? Join us at 8 AM each Saturday!

We kick-start our Barkrun every Saturday at 8 AM sharp. Following a safety briefing and some warm-up exercises, you and your dog will have the chance to run a Canicross 5k together. Don’t worry if you’re new to this – our event is designed to be welcoming and inclusive to newcomers. We even have a group of experienced Canicrossers who would be more than happy to show you the ropes!

After your run, why not stick around for a while? We encourage our participants to volunteer or take part in the park run at 9 AM. It’s a great way to further engage with the local Canicross community and continue your morning of exercise and fun!
