In this episode of RunPod, we meet Georgie and Ben who introduce us to a sport that is huge across mainland Europe, very much on the rise at a competitive level and as a social, fun activity for all ages. Georgie Lambert decided 'canicross' sounded fun and wanted to give it a go so persuaded Ben to go along with her...let’s just be clear, Ben is her dog!
Canicross is a sport that involves humans and their four-legged friends, where dogs run alongside their owners, which in turn can massively improve your running PB, help you get fitter than you could be through regular running whilst creating an even closer bond with that family member who wags their tail every time you come through the door.
Seriously, even ardent, non-dog loving, cat fans will be fascinated to hear details of this sport! You never know, after listening to this episode of RunPod, you might even find yourself heading out with a pooch to give it a go yourself!!
