This October, meet our guide dogs at the finish line.

We will be taking over Sutton Park in Birmingham on Sunday 30 October with our sponsored run; The Guide Dogs 5K. 

Run, walk or jog to be greeted by our pawsome guide dogs at the finish. Now that’s what we call motivation.

Turn our 5K into a date for the whole family

We’ve got lots lined up, including music, inspiring talks, face painting and dog demonstrations to show you how we work.

  • Adults (over 16) – sign up for £15pp (plus booking fee) and start fundraising to hit your £125 target.

Caitlin and her guide dog Honey

Your donations will help children like Caitlin

Caitlin was born with congenital glaucoma and underwent almost 50 operations before her fifth birthday.

Caitlin says: “I knew a guide dog could help me be even more confident and independent, but I never expected to gain a best friend as well. Honey puts a smile on my face every day with her puppy eyes and wagging tail. She’s my reason to get out of bed in the morning and have a great day. We’re a perfect match.”
