What our clients say

Cannon Events Saturday morning kids running club has really helped our 13 yr old daughter with her conditioning, stamina and technique. Her recent park run times are a testament to this, and last weekend her Canicross race time significantly improved on last year, coming 7th place out of 20 entrants and her being the only under 18yrs. More importantly, she really enjoys the training and advice from John and the other coaches.

Phil Hames

John Cannon certainly knows about fitness, fun and fundraising and is a perfect organiser. He is excellent at locating a safe environment for a walking/running event.

Pauline Holmes

John at Cannon Events is a highly experienced Events Organiser. He is also a man of high integrity. I trust him implicitly.

David Lilley
