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* 


Following our decision to postpone the Great Global Greyhound Walk from our traditional date in June, we would like to announce that we have set the date of  Sunday 19th September for GGGW 2021.

Hoping that the majority of our supporters will be able to participate safely, covid rules allowing, and we can have a full GGGW, complete with registrations and group walks. If all is looking safe to proceed, we plan to open registrations in mid July*.

We hope our supporters will welcome the setting of a date for GGGW 2021 to put in their diaries and to plan and look forward to.

Keep safe, please obey your local guidelines and hopefully brighter times are not far off.

Please follow us on facebook or view the website for all the latest information.


Best wishes, 

from the GGGW team


We had hoped to have the website ready to open for walk registrations this weekend but sadly we have encountered a problem and there will be a delay.
Apologies to keep you all waiting; we know you are keen to register your walks, or view the locations and choose where to walk on the day. Hopefully the delay will only be a week or so.
Despite the delay, GGGW 2021 is coming! Sunday 19th September.

Our theme for 2020/21 is the colour BLUE
