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 has been cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions***

Our theme for 2020/21 is the colour BLUE

With great sadness we have made the decision to cancel the Great Global Greyhound Walk 2020.
The Greyhound Walks charity that runs the GGGW feels it is inappropriate at this time to encourage people to go out and meet in groups. For everyones safety we have decided to cancel.
We would like to thank our walk organisers for committing to this years walk in difficult circumstances and apologise that the decision has been made so late.
The GGGW team would love you all to still walk your hounds with pride on Sunday 4th October, wear the colour theme of blue if you wish, and send in your photos to our facebook group. Although we won’t be counting numbers, we feel that we can all still unite ‘together’ across the world, doing our daily walks as individuals.
We did have the option of registering private walks only but this would be more work for the GGGW team, with little consequence to our aims of promoting sighthounds as great pets.
We have put our hearts and souls into trying to carry on this year but sadly the worldwide COVID-19 situation has not improved enough for us to see it through and continue.
We will continue with the theme of blue for next year so any merchandise purchased this year will be applicable to next year too. Our shop on the website will close this Friday (28th).
We will bounce back in 2021!
Take care, hug your hounds and keep safe everyone x
