Last weekend we went all the way up to the West coast of Estonia. 2017-10-14/15
IFFS World Cup Races event – Baltic Cup IV took place at a beautiful Jõulumäe Recreational Sports Centre with a history of over 40 years.
Lithuanians came back with 6 Gold, 3 Silver medals, 1 Bronze and other great results!
Track was of full 5 km x 2 days. Nice skiing tracks in a pine-woods.
3 dogs from kennel UPE were participating. All experienced good sport dogs with passion, power and speed:
Bogdan & and Invi (Callidus Invictum UPE) – FIRST in Canicross category! Gold from 14 men, Elite class!

Beautiful smile at the Finish line. First day with 5 km done
Second day was a new experience for our Team – massive Canicross Start. I am not a big fan of this idea but was interesting to see it live.
First set was done by fastest runners after the First day’s results. 10 fastest runners:
