Organiser's Description

The Race:

We are a group of friends who are fundraising Guide Dogs. Sight loss can be devastating, by participating in this virtual run you are helping to give a new life to those people who are afflicted. 

All you have to do to become a guide Dog Hero and claim a beautiful guide Dog Medal is cover 5k or 10k at your own pace; using your own method (run,walk, jog, cycle) whenever is best for you to do it. For example, many of the 2018 participants nominated their Parkrun and others organised a run with their running club on a training night. Some cycled, while others walked 5k with friends. it can be done as slow or as fast as you like at the time and place that best suits you. You can either use it as a personal challenge, have a friendly and chatty walk or jog with your friends, or anything in between. However you do it, you will be helping to support a great cause.

The Route:

As a virtual run No matter where you are - you can participate!


Starting now and it will run till August 31st.


To claim your reward, you can email with your nominated 5k or 10k, and your name and address. If you can, please include a selfie for our Guide Dog Hero collection. If you live in the local East Neuk area, you can receive your medal at Parkrun, or I would be happy to come to your club night and award them there, otherwise I can mail it to you.


Every participant will receive a 5k or 10k medal with massive thanks for supporting this great cause.
