It is thanks to the support of guide runners that our blind and visually impaired runners are able to take to the streets and roads; as such, we are deeply appreciative of the wonderful contribution of our volunteer guide runners in enabling our members with a visual disability to do what they do. It is not complicated to be a guide runner – on the contrary, it is fun. As a first time guide, we will pair you with an experienced team at a group run so that you can see guide running in action before trying it for yourself.
For a tutorial on how guide running is done, United in Stride has developed an excellent resource and we encourage you to take a look!
We hope you’ll consider giving guide running a try. Please complete a Guide Information Form or download a pdf of the paper form and mail it to us. If you would prefer the form be emailed to you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
