How do you take into account for running with my dog(s) ?
Each year we apply a coefficient to the age-grade calculation. This is based on our research & development, and cumulative data. We continue to refine the algorithm as time goes on. Our coefficient is affectionately known as the 3C coefficient (Canicross Correction Coefficient). We don't at this moment allow for breeds and for number of dogs, yet we seem to get some impressively accurate figures against some benchmarks. The reason being is that the slowest common denominator is the human. We recognise in the top world echelons of competition every joule of energy and every gram of weigh counts, but for popular canicrossing we think this is the way to go !
