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 2020 is to further increase on numbers and global coverage – with the aim of 10,000 participating hounds!  Join us on Sunday 4th October 2020 and lets make it happen!

Our theme for 2020 is the colour BLUE

Sadly we had to take the decision to postpone the Great Global Greyhound Walk 2020 from its usual date in June, however we are pleased to announce that the NEW DATE is Sunday 4th October 2020.

(PLEASE NOTE this is a change from the 11th as previously stated)

With the coronavirus pandemic in mind, we will be following government guidelines and ask our walk organisers to do likewise, as to whether it will be safe to walk in October.  We are now very hopeful that we can proceed and are now pressing ahead with our plans for GGGW 2020.

Walks already registered will remain registered for the new October date unless Walk Organisers let us know that they need to cancel or amend.  Walk registrations will re-open on 1st July.

Please look out for further news via the website or our social media channels – especially important with the constant changing guidelines regarding COVID-19.  We ask all walk organisers to contact us as soon as possible if they need to make any amendments to their walk registration, and for walkers to be aware that some walks may be subject to late changes and to check our website (www.greatglobalgreyhoundwalk.co.uk) before travelling.
