Running with the Hounds

About This Activity

Running with the Hounds combines two rare opportunities! 

Participants can enjoy the 6,000 acre fox hunting and equestrian trails at Middleton Place rarely open to the public and participate in the popular European sport known as canicross (running with your dog in a tandem harness).   

Walkers can also participate with or without their dogs.  The trails and lakes that run throughout the property host hawks, song birds, wild turkeys, hogs and deer.  The trails on the run will take you along some of the most scenic areas.
