How can I become a Guide Runner?

If you would like to become a Guide Runner, a good place to start is by attending a Sight loss awareness and guide running course run by England Athletics.

Attending this course is your first step to becoming a licensed Guide Runner, once you are licenced you can be listed on British Blind Sport's Find a Guide database.

You can still be a Guide Runner without getting a license, approach your local society who might be able to match you up with someone who is looking for a guide. You can find your local society on the Sightline Directory, by entering your postcode and the search words 'local society'

Further information can be found in British Blind Sport's guide to guide running and our How to be a guide runner factsheet:
