DogFit teams up with Surrey Hills Challenge

Monday 27 August 2018

The Surrey Hills Challenge is delighted to announce it will be partnering with Canicross experts, DogFit for this year’s event on Sunday 23rd September.

The Dogfit team will be at the event offering personalised kit fittings as well as providing information and demonstrations on how to begin running with your dog. DogFit are also sponsoring the Half, Ten and Five Cani-Cross prizes. 

DogFit was set-up by Gail Walker and Ginetta George to encourage more people and their dogs to give Canicross a go. Canicross is the sport of cross country running with dogs and the best thing about it is that you don't need lots of equipment. A canicross kit, your trainers and your dog - and you can run anywhere and enjoy the view. For more information on how to get started visit
