United In Stride
United in Stride is an online tool for runners who are blind or visually impaired to connect with sighted guides across North America. Founded by a joint effort from VI athlete Richard Hunter and MABVI, it is hoped this resource provides the much-needed information so a VI runner can connect with a sighted guide close to home, or when traveling to another part of the country. We believe that a robust, interactive sighted guide database will create more opportunities for the next generation of visually impaired runners.
Please unite with us by sharing this resource with others who share your passion to run and volunteer, and with those who want to share the sport, they love. The goal of United In Stride is to provide information so runners can connect with guides. Learn more at the United In Stride website
