Dash Hounds

The Dash Hound series runs on a shorter 5km (3 mile) course starting and finishing at the club house and turning in front of Debenhams.  With no portages these races are specifically aimed at U14s who are not quite up to the full Hare and Hounds course. These are friendly and low key races aimed at introducing younger paddlers to the challenges of winter racing.
