Tri Dog UK The only Dog triathlon in the UK

Tri dog UK the only Dog Triathlon in the UK

As part of the event series on Canicross Conversations we talk to Emily Thomas founder of Tri dog UK.  The only Triathlon event for dogs.

This takes place at Box End in Bedfordshire at the end of September using the skiing lake for the swim.  There is only one event a year and lots of hype before and after with some great footage of dogs and humans enjoying the weekend.

It’s a great way to start the season and try something different with your dog.

Plus, it’s a great way to keep some training up during the summer.

Entry opens early 2024 for next years event, so don’t miss it!
