Feel immense and run every sense

Use Your Senses is Guide Dogs very own family friendly 5K event series with 5 sensory experiences. Whether you want to take part with your family, friends or work colleagues, this event is suitable for everyone, so you can run, jog, skip or walk it.

5K not for you? You can sign up to our Mini Use Your Senses instead. A shortened route, with all the sensory experiences.

Get ready to visit our Sense Stations where you can:

  • TASTE a delicious treat and tantalise your taste buds
  • SEE an explosion of colourful powder
  • TOUCH the suds as you take on our foam pit
  • SMELL the aroma of scented bubbles
  • LISTEN to live music

Use your senses and change the lives of families living with sight loss.
