Custom House Quay, Dublin
10 km, 5 Km
Run in the Dark 2018 kicks off in Dublin on 7th November at 8.00pm. Join the Mark Pollock Trust and thousands of fellow runners as we light up the night and take over the streets of the city centre for Dublin’s largest night run, passing landmarks such as Custom House Quay and the Samuel Beckett Bridge.
Every November, as darkness sweeps the globe, thousands of people in 50 cities across the world will pull on their running shoes and red flashing armbands and hit the streets to Run in the Dark.
You can choose between running 5km or 10km… and if your running shoes are a little dusty, you can even walk the 5km route.
The Dublin event will leave from CHQ, Dublin city centre at 8.00pm.
We know there are lots of running events out there, so why choose Run in the Dark?!
Apart from being a unique night run taking place in iconic locations around the world, there’s also an important cause fuelling this fundraising run. Run in the Dark is a global running movement helping to cure paralysis in our lifetime.
Run in the Dark is organised by the Mark Pollock Trust, named after blind Irish adventure athlete Mark Pollock. Unbroken by blindness in 1998, Mark Pollock suffered a catastrophic spinal cord injury in 2010 when he fell from a second story window that left him paralysed. As Mark strives to walk again, his most complex journey is ahead of him – to find a cure for paralysis.
By taking part in Run in the Dark you are enabling ground-breaking collaborations and research which could change the lives of millions of paralysed people around the world.
Every donation, every step, every study, moves us towards a cure for paralysis and enabling people to walk again.
