 Guide Dogs UK aim is to ensure that our services are based firmly on what blind and partially sighted people want. Our research programme enables us to gather the evidence we need to ensure that our policies, campaigns and services remain relevant to people with sight loss and allow them to get out and about on their own terms. The main areas of interest we carry out research in, either internally or with the help of external collaborators are listed below: 

Canine research - to support the behaviour, health and welfare of our dogs

Psycho-social research - to investigate how we can support the emotional well-being of our service users

Technology, orientation and mobility - to investigate how technology can help our service users to improve their independent mobility when out and about

Policy Research - to investigate barriers to independent mobility and wellbeing within the environment, in order to develop best practice guidance and inform campaigns

Market and Customer Insight - to increase our understanding of the people we engage with (people with sight loss) and the environment we operate in (the market)

for more information please visit the website www.guidedogs.org.uk

The cost to enter is £12.50

£5 of each runner will be sent to Guide Dogs UK just giving page on behalf of DB12Run

Due to covid-19 and facecoverings we will be sending every person who enters the event a custom unique one of a kind Guide Dog snood ( Buff ). This is a multi-functional and antibacterial snood thats easily washable / constantly reusable as a face mask for coronavirus. This tube-shape snood can easily be pulled up over the mouth and nose in shops or out and about.

So how does it work?

A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) cycle from any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk and even cycle on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill at the gym or on the track where ever you can do it. You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself if you wish. 

for swimming we recommend using an indoor pool... its november! tad chilly now..
