Great Global Greyhound Walk
The Great Global Greyhound Walk is an annual dog-walking event that brings together greyhounds, lurchers, other sighthounds and their owners to raise awareness of the breeds and show the public just what wonderful pets they make.
Become a part of the Great Global Greyhound Walk family, join in the fun and help us beat previous years totals whilst promoting greyhounds and all their sighthound cousins.
All the info you need can be found on this site but, for all the latest news, come and join us in our Facebook group.
The 2019 ‘Great Global Greyhound Walk’ was another record-breaking, year. We saw more sighthounds than ever, both in the UK and all around the world, joining in. The hope for the future is to further increase on numbers and global coverage – with the aim of 10,000 participating hounds!
Sadly GGGW 2020 was cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions
