The series winners will each receive a perpetual trophy, which will be engraved, to keep for a year before returning it to be passed on to the next seasons winner. Podium places in the series will all receive a little keepsake.
It is anticipated that the season will finish with a culmination social event in May/June 2016, with an awards presentation, food, drinks and dancing. Research is on going to find a suitable, central venue that caters for all our needs. Any ideas, please do let us know.

RESULTS AFTER RACE 2
RESULTS AFTER RACE 2
Q) Can I alternate between 1 and 2 dog categories?
A) No, if you wish to feature in the series it is advised that you stick to your preferred category throughout the series races.
Q) Do I have to run with the same dog/s for each series race?
A) No, you can swap between dogs
Q) I’m unable to make 1 or more of the series races. Can I use my finishing time from another canicross race?
A) Unfortunately not, sorry.
Q) What if my age category isn’t an individual category in one of the series races (e.g Cani-Sports Edinburgh do not currently have a 50+ category)
A) No problem the results will be analysed and points allocated as if there had been the missing age category in the series race in question. Please bare in mind this will have a knock on effect on the placings for the other categories.
Q) What if I change age categories during the series?
A) Your fastest 3 races will count. You will be placed in the category for which you have done the majority of you races. E.G if you do 2 races aged 39 and 2 races aged 40, your fastest 3 races would be the counters for the series, from this you will be placed in the category for which you have competed in for 2 of the series races.
