Update : We have cancelled Monday the 30th Lure Racing and it is now this Saturday the 28th instead.

All Dogs Lure Racing is the UK’s first All Breed Lure Racing/Coursing Club. Based in South Buckinghamshire, the meetings are held in a fabulous well fenced polo pitch and run a combination of straight races and continuous loop courses. Our aim is to provide a relaxed and pleasurable atmosphere, some fun and exercise for your dog and to meet some likeminded people. Any dog, regardless of type, is welcome.

Well, here's the team who are supporting our marathon training - from left to right Callie, Sam, Banrigh and Hettie. They're running a lot of the training miles for the final event on 29th April - the first Milton Keynes Marathon. The human team are Rob, Dave and Elise and they need all the support they can get.

We are running in aid of the Brainstrust in memory of Rob and Dave's uncle - Derrick Round who sadly died last year from brain cancer. Brainstrust is a charity that offers practical and emotional help to brain tumour sufferers and their families.  Brainstrust doesn’t get as much press as other cancer charities so we want to do what we can to raise money to help.

If you would be able to donate anything to the Brainstrust please visit this just giving page and wish us luck!
