Recce the race at Lissan House

27th October 2019 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Lissan House and Demense
Drumgrass Rd
Cookstown BT80 9SW

Fancy getting ahead of the game and having a sneak peek of the trails for our Muddy Mutts race on the 24th November?

Join is for a class where we will have a rummage around the race trails of Lissan House, practice crossing some obstacles, and teach you the best techniques for running over muddy winter terrain. Fingers crossed, we will get a nosy inside the 400 year old house, and a stop off in the tea room for their famous scones (Bring £5.00 for this if you fancy tea and scones post class).

Please aim to arrive 15-20 mins early if you wish to borrow kit. Please also arrive early enough to allow your dog to go to the toilet. All dog fouling MUST be bagged and binned. Dogs MUST be kept on leads at all times as there is farmland with sheep and cattle surrounding the forest.

Newcomers to canicross are very welcome to attend this session, but please do arrive early to be fitted for kit.
