On Sunday May 4, Louise Norris, a member of Thetford Athletic Club and CaniX UK travelled to Salisbury plain with her dog - Blitzer - to both take part in the CaniX half marathon.

CaniX (Canine Cross country) is running with your dog and is for any breed of dog.

The weather conditions were very hot for running with dogs and extra care had to be taken to ensure the dogs didn't over heat.

Louise and Blitzer came a respectable seventh-placed lady and dog in a time of 2hrs and 2mins.

Louise and Blitzer have also competed in several other shorter distance CaniX races in the season and are hoping to bring CaniX to Thetford Forrest next season for a shorter event.

For more information on CaniX please see the website www.canix.co.uk
