Kippen Canicross is a group that enjoy a friendly and fun run with their dogs. All types of dogs, runners and abilities are welcome to come along.
We are a friendly group that love to run with our dogs. We run as a group and no one gets left behind.
James Mcminn is the contact for the group, and he can be PM’d via the Facebook page or contacted via his mobile 07376181017
Runs are usually on Thursdays at 7.30pm, but keep an eye on the Facebook page for specifics, and alternative runs that are being organised.
What is Canicross?
Canicross is the sport of running off-road with your dog. The human participant wears a waistbelt which attaches via a 2-metre bungee line to a padded dog harness. It is a fantastic way to keep you and your dog fit whilst enjoying the great outdoors together. It provides a physical workout for your dog and the use of directional commands will help him to learn to use his brain and build up his confidence. http://www.canicross.org.uk
Dogs must wear a suitable harness and be attached to their handler by a line containing some bungee to act as a shock absorber.
Lines must not be longer than 2 meters when fully extended.
A waist belt is strongly recommended for handlers. No head collars, choke chains or flexi leads.
Social runs take place most Wednesday nights, with times to suit those running – can vary from 6.30pm-7.30pm start time.
Runs are within the Carron Valley, either from Todholes or the Main Car Park, but sometimes can follow the Antonine Trail Race route or take in some local hills.
All running is on trail, so expect plenty of mud and a fair share of hills. Running carries on through the winter in all weathers, with headtorches, with a run to the top of Meikle Bin being a firm favourite!
To enjoy this group, it would be better to have some running miles under your belt, so I would suggest that you would be able to complete a 10K distance (speed isn’t a requirement!) comfortably.
Strathendrick 2002 football team is based in Balfron (Post code G63) and are looking for new players for the forthcoming season playing in the Forth Valley Development League.
Training is twice a week ( Tuesdays and Thursdays nights 7.30 – 9pm) with matches on a Saturday morning.

Full playing kit is provided – if any players are interested in joining our friendly and welcoming team, please contact Roger Gifford on 07900 137179.
We train Tuesday’s and Thursday’s and play most of our games on a Saturday morning and occasionally midweek in the evening.
