Groggy Doggy Cross Country
The event will be on 27th December 2021 – note, to avoid any confusion this is not Boxing Day
The event will go ahead assuming we can adhere to any restrictions that may be in place at the time.
There is a limit of 350 runners. We ran short of parking in 2019 and wish to avoid that again.
10.30am Outney Common, Bungay, NR35 1DS. A beautiful rural riverside setting, with plenty of mud! Fancy dress and dogs welcome. This is the antidote to Christmas.
The wonderful Tom Moore (certified Dogfit canicross trainer) has offered a free canicross training session to anyone running the Groggy Doggy 2021. All dogs running on the day in the 2021 event will be entered into a lucky dip draw.
Tom’s details can be found here: https://dogfit.co.uk/pages/trainer-profile#2801

Thank you to everyone who ran yesterday, who marshalled, Outney Commoners especially David Utting, Tracey Abell, Judy Cloke (Reeve), St John Ambulance especially Michael Atterwill (deputising for the Mayor). This year we raised £137.89 for PACT Animal Sanctuary, Hingham; we took 40kg of food (human) to Waveney Foodbank and around four times that in dog and cat food to PACT. Both charities are very grateful.
The 2019 trophies and medals looked like this. (Made by Steve Sadd, Norfolk Gazelles)
Many thanks to all who ran today, the marshals, The Commoners and St John Ambulance.
