Canicross

*5km – 100+

A classic, since our second edition the most collaborative discipline is with us. And this year with news; after the route change of the last edition caused by the storms, we have decided to keep a shorter distance, fast and explosive, so the season start at Montblanc is a must!

So, with those 5km we invite all the canicross runners to come and enjoy a Saturday with great ambiance and a brutal stage as it’s our Ducal Villa.

Hope to see you at Montblanc, at your canicross!

Mandatory equipment

  1. CANICROSS BELT
    for the runner waist. .It has to be wide and comfortable for the runner and has to allow to attach the canicross line with a fast open carabiner fixed to the belt.
  2. CANICROSS LINE
    to hitch the runner’s belt to the dog’s harness. It is required to have an elastic part (bungee). The longitude of the line has to be between 2 and 2,5 m. It is required to hitch the line to the dog’s harness with a strong carabiner.
  3. CANICROSS HARNESS
    It has to be canicross specific, strong enough to guarantee that the dog will not break it and run away. Will have to protect the dog of chaffing with the parts of the harness in contact with the skin. Because of that it can’t be made of abrasive or cutting material; it also has to have cushioned zones for a superior protection.
  4. In case of conflictive dogs a muzzle can be required and start the race in last place (the breeds are not defined as conflictive, but a particular dog). Runners with aggressive dogs cannot join the race without informing organization.
