The Foy family from Newarthill are part of the Scottish team competing at the Canix World Championships in Wales this weekend.

Nicola Foy took up Canicross two years ago and was joined by children (l-r) Charlie, Kerryn and John and latterly husband John along with collie Sam and spaniel Belle.

The entire 44-strong Scottish team have been training hard individually and also had three group training sessions, including one at Strathclyde Park.

Nicola said: “It’s quite a technical sport as it isn’t just who can run the fastest it’s who can control their dog the best.”
