About the event

The Rehab Rover Canicross and Trail Race powered by Veterinary Rehabilitation Services of Virginia and Harness Canicular LLC presents the first Canicross race ever in the Commonwealth of Virginia! Whether you are joining us for fun or competing for a top spot on the podium, your bond with your dog will be strengthened as you navigate the trail together! Join us on October 5, 2024, for the best day with your dog!

The day is not just about running, walking, hiking, or hobbling on the trail. Join us for the Rehab Rover Finisher's Festival from 9 am - 2 pm (spectators and family welcome). The festival will be held near the historic Clifton house on the property, which is the hub of all of the operations and features The Dog House Biergarten, food trucks, music, and the Vendor Village with local craftsmen and dog products throughout. Cool off from your race, grab some food, and enjoy the relaxing environment and views from Clifton House. 

We will also have Rodeo Dog set up onsite so you and your dog can learn how to be a Rodeo Dog for FREE!

Are you new to Canicross or have a dog in training? Join the 5k Dog-Friendly Trail run and take all the pressure off- just get out there and have fun with your dog. Do not have a dog - come join us with your friends and family!

We will start runners in teams of 3-5 at 1-minute intervals to eliminate crowding/bottlenecking on the course. The event is fully outdoors with ample space to distance. 

Every Participant will receive a logo race T-shirt and a finisher medal! *Note: T-shirt/size is not guaranteed if you register after August 30, 2024. 

Are you coming from out of state, or do you have a long drive? Make plans to Camp or bring your RV the night before or stay one night after the race. Do not forget to sign up during registration!

Not into camping but need a place to stay on the property for the event? The Clifton House  (www.cliftonhouse.farm) will have limited rooms available for the event. Please [email protected] for reservations. 

Whiskers 2 Toes Canine Massage Therapy will be on site for the event, offering canine massage appointments for participant dogs. If you would like to book a therapeutic massage for your dog before or after the race, please contact Nancy Lilly at [email protected] or call 540-846-3961. Laser and PEMF mat therapies are also available upon request.

Fundraiser Organization: Louisa Community Animal Response Team (LCART)

When you run the Rehab Rover, you help save lives!

A percentage of every participant fee and 100% of donations will go towards the needed medical supplies for animals rescued by the Louisa Community Animal Response Team (LCART). Help us make this first year a success by getting as many friends and family registered as possible so we can donate a nice amount to this wonderful group of volunteers!
