How Madison got involved in the sport

Mum Danielle told CSJ, “Madison has been running since she was 3/4 and once she was older she started canicross with one of us, we soon realised we couldn’t keep up with her! 

Madison had amazing mentors in fellow canicrossers Chris Reade and Lucy Mathews who between them have helped her endlessly with training plans, encouragement and above all been there to race with her, without them she wouldn’t be able to compete.”

The family have 5 dogs

Three working dogs - Bronte English pointer age 4, Bella aged 2, a Working Cocker Spaniel and Lilly a German Pointer x Greyhound 8 months.  

Two older pets - Molly and Bonnie

Bella the Spaniel is Madison’s training dog as she can handle her by herself.

Bronte is her race dog when attached with a speedy adult!

Lilly is hopefully her future race dog!

The most memorable success?

At Forest of Dean canicross event - on the Saturday Madison wasn’t feeling great and after the first day was in second place and a minute behind first place!

Sunday she ran for that first place and not only managed to gain back the minute she went on and won by a further 40 seconds.

The fantastic 2019/2020 season

Madison is legally old enough to compete and has had an amazing first season….
