Grey’t day out! 1,000 Greyhounds - Guinness World Record Event for largest single breed dog walk.
Come along and join us and be part of this great event. There is a campsite available if you want to make a weekend of it, as well as dog friendly accommodation. All dogs welcome to take part in the walk but only greyhounds will be counted.
Greyhound owners from all four corners of the UK will come together later this year in an attempt to break the Guinness world record for the largest single breed dog walk.
Organisers hope to attract over 1000 Greyhounds and their owners to the event on 9 September. The previous record was set in 2010 by 700 Labradors in Warsaw, Poland, in an event organised by Kimberly-Clark, owners of the Andrex brand.
The Greyhound Sanctuary, a small independent rescue in Devon, is organising the three-mile walk at Escot Park, Ottery St. Mary, Devon. It is hoped the world record attempt will raise the profile of the breed and alert potential adopters to the fact they can make fantastic pets.
Other charities and appropriate trade stands are welcome to come along – details and booking form can be found on the website (see below)
Entry is just £5 for each dog entered. The rules state only one Greyhound per person can be counted, so if you know someone with two, why not go along to offer a helping hand and get the numbers up. Under Guinness’ rules, all dogs taking part must carry documentation stating they are Greyhounds or Italian Greyhounds, for example a pedigree certificate or note from your vet. Unfortunately crossbreeds cannot enter the record attempt, but are more than welcome to join in and support the walk. Participants can also be sponsored for the walk, and can choose charity for which they would like to fundraise.
For more information, accommodation details, booking forms, sponsor forms and posters, visit www.greyhoundworldrecord.com email info@greyhoundworldrecord.com or call 07528 537 943.
