"I have recently set up a series of running events in the North East that humans can do with their dogs, and I’m trying to spread the word!
The first event is at Chopwell Wood, Gateshead on Sunday 16 June with 2 more to be announced for the back end of the year. Each event has a 5 mile, 5k and a 1 mile Family Wolfpack Run to get all the family involved. The events can also be walked.
The website is traildogevents.co.uk and is TRAILDOG Events on both Facebook and Instagram (we’re currently running a competition for a Ruffwear running belt and leash too)."
