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.

Great Global Greyhound Walk

Each Great Global Greyhound Walk is organised by a local volunteer. And, to make a day of it, the walks are often followed by a social or fundraising event: picnics, BBQ’s, mini dog shows, awareness stalls etc. to help promote the hounds even more and hopefully raise some much needed funds for those still waiting for homes.

Originally starting in the UK, it is now very much a global affair. In 2022 the event welcomed Gibraltar, Portugal and San Marino, who all walked for the first time. In total of 10,620 Sighthounds walked 'together' across 432 walks in over 29 countries for the record breaking 2022 event. Well done everyone. Why not join them and show the world that Sighthounds make great pets.

Become a part of the Great Global Greyhound Walk family, join in the fun and help them beat previous years totals whilst promoting greyhounds and their sighthound cousins.
