The Great British Greyhound Walk is an annual dog-walking event that brings together greyhounds, lurchers, other sighthounds and their owners, to raise awareness and show members of the public just what wonderful pets greyhounds make.
Every year, large group-walks are held nationwide on the same day and at the same time; together, the groups walk concurrently as one huge family, promoting greyhounds one step at a time.
This is our brand-new website dedicated to giving you the most up-to-date information our walks, both past and present. Whether you’ve never been on a “Greyhound Walk” before, or you and your hounds are “regulars”: join in, share photos and come along to a Walk near you – you don’t need to book or “join”, just come along and introduce yourself – we’d love have you with us.
The Great British Greyhound Walk is a project of Greyhound Walks, a group of greyhound and lurcher owners who walk most weekends in Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk and Hertfordshire.
A little bit of a wait but the wristbands are now waiting for you to order them and for them to be sent off.
In addition to the outside print of Great British Greyhound Walk 2013 on the inside we have a very subtle message “Rainbow Bridge Hounds – Always With Us”

Greyhound Rescue Wales are not only doing a Great British Greyhound Walk in Bute Park, Cardiff, but they also have a sponsored walk on 5 May 2013 in Tredegar, this is in memory of Last Hope.
“Last Hope was a greyhound found left for dead, badly injured and with both ears cut off on a mountainside in the Rhymney Valley in South Wales. He was discovered lying on rubbish with a hole in his forehead on 2 May 2004 by a walker, and was later humanely destroyed
But out of such cruelty can come some good. Greyhound Rescue Wales set up a ‘Last Hope Fund’ and holds an annual sponsored walk to raise money for the fund. This money has been used to resuce, treat and rehome especially desperate greyhounds or lurchers for whom the only other option would have been euthenasia.
The costs of such treatment are huge, but the number of dogs saved increases year on year.”
