Guide Runner Running Blind

Why run?

Running is a great way to get fit, enjoy the outdoors and meet other people. England Athletics and British Blind Sport have created Find a Guide to help blind and partially sighted people start, get back to or stay running. If you are 18 or older simply search for guide runners near you using your postcode. Our friendly guide runners have all attended a Sight Loss Awareness and Guide Running workshop, are DBS checked, passionate about running and are waiting to help support you whether it’s your first time running or you’re a seasoned runner just looking for more support.

Finding a guide runner could help you to:

  • Go for a run – any place, any time, any distance, any speed.
  • Join a club or running group – a great way to meet new people and socialise.
  • Take part in an event or race – an opportunity to set goals and challenge yourself.

If you’re interested in Find A Guide, for yourself or someone you know, then watch our Find A Guide video or listen to the Find A Guide audio file (this will open in a new window).
