How to organise a walk?

If you can’t find a walk local to you, why not organise your own Great Global Greyhound Walk? Anyone is very welcome to.

We have a really helpful guide GGGW Rules  which you can download.  If you still have questions then do visit our group on Facebook … lots of organisers are there to offer help and advice or we can link you up with a mentor.  You can also contact us by email [email protected] with any questions.  Then when you’re ready to go for it simply register your walk online, there are just a few common sense rules we ask you to stick to.

What types of walks are there?

There are three types of walk you can do

  • Greyhound & Sighthound Only – just as it says;  no messing.
  • Greyhound PLUS – greyhounds, sighthounds and other breeds from a greyhound family (companion dogs).
  • Little Local Walk – you can’t get to one of the large organised walks but still want to be involved?  Then register with us and walk with your hounds and you’ll be a part of this exciting day.  You’re just as important!

Whether you use a megaphone, Hi-Viz coat or a stall it’s good to know who’s in charge.

 What happens after you register?

  • We’ll approve your registration and your walk will then be added to the map and be on the ‘The List’
  • Your walk will be promoted through the website and Facebook
  • Our volunteers are here to help you with any part of your walk from general moral support, ideas for making it a bigger event to helping to do a Risk Assessment if you’re asked for one
  • On walk day, we’ll text you and wait for you to text us back with your hound numbers
  • Whatever type of walk you’re doing during walk day we’ll be texting organisers and updating Facebook and Twitter  so that you’re updated with the national/international total.
