Age

Children are allowed to run and are insured from 12 years old. The registration/waiver form would need to be signed by the parent. I would also ask that the child runs with their parent.

Dogs Dogs or incidents caused by dogs are not covered under the insurance, so would not be allowed to run with us. However Amanda Stevens has an excellent canicross group designed for those wanting to run with their dogs. https://www.facebook.com/groups/338459289612397/?ref=bookmarks
