In 2023, we had another record breaking year!
11,818 sighthounds walked around the globe across 458 walks in 36 countries!
Well done everyone!
In 2023 we welcomed China, Falkland Islands, Finland, Greece, Mauritius, Poland and Hungary for the 1st time!
Thanks also to all the walk organisers and walkers worldwide who contributed to such a great total.
The annual event aims to raise awareness of greyhounds, and their sighthound cousins, as great pets. Originally started in the UK, it is now very much a global affair. This year 458 walks took place, with more countries than ever before taking part. From London to Auckland, Perth to New York, Cape Town to Dublin, hound owners walked ‘together’ on Sunday 24th September.
Highest attendance for a walk was 503 in Yorkshire, England, closely followed by 308 in Burswood, Western Australia. What an amazing spectacle to see this amount of hounds together. You can see the top 10 walks by ‘Globe’ and ‘Country’ here.
The Great Global Greyhound Walk 2024 will take place on Sunday 29th September 2024 and the aim will be 12,000 hounds!
