Neil Braidwood
Chair

Neil is from Fife but don’t hold that against him. He’s been coming to canicross for about four years with his active springer spaniel Ruby. He helps with the Saturday morning runs at Vogrie, and tries to enter races when he can. Working in the media, Neil is keen to use his skills to promote the sport and in particular Cani-Sports Edinburgh, to as many people as possible.

Julie Mair
Vice Chair

Having read about canicross, Julie thought it sounded like a great way to get fit at the same time as exercising her dog so once her chocolate lab, Coco, turned one in 2016, Julie started joining the regular club runs and now helps out at both Dalkeith and Vogrie. Working in an office all day, Julie enjoys the Monday Dalkeith run as it’s a great stress buster, whereas at Vogrie on a Saturday morning, the highlight is the trip to the café post-run for coffee and chat. Julie gets along to some of the ad hoc non-club runs when she can and enters some of the local canicross events.

Jane Irvine
Secretary

Jane feels she has been on the committee for far too long, but her experience is crucial to the smooth running of the club. She runs two Border terriers unless able to borrow a dog that actually pulls! Jane has done some races, enjoys walking and longer distance runs with dogs and the friendly nature of folks within the club.

Craig and Lola

Craig Heaslip
Treasurer

Craig is from Cork and has been running with his Jack Russell Lola since the club started in 2014. As Treasurer, Craig is a trusted, level-headed member of the committee, and keeps the finances on an even keel. Craig is also a skilled photographer and qualified drone pilot.
