Amended October 2023: The North American Canicross Junior Runner Program is for children twelve years old to eighteen years old. It was designed to encourage youth involvement in canicross as a fun, family-friendly sport and to promote responsible pet ownership. Dogs and junior runners may compete in the Junior Runner Program the same as registered members in the North American Canicross Titling Program.
Junior runner need not be the owner of the dog; however, a dog and junior runner must be registered as a team in order to participate in the Junior Runner Program. A dog may be registered with more than one handler, in this instance. A digital registration card bearing the information included on the registration application will be issued based on the name of the Junior Runner and the dog since accomplishments are measured and awarded to the dog and handler as a team.
Junior Runner Registration requires the NACC waiver be signed by a parent or guardian 18 years or older.
Competitors may compete with any dog, purebred and/or mixed breed, 12* months or older. *Amended October 2023
