WHY WE RUN IN THE DARK

As darkness sweeps around the globe from 9th – 16th November 2022, 25,000 people worldwide will get up from their armchairs, slip on their red flashing armbands and pull on their running shoes to complete a 5k or 10k. 

Connecting runners both physically and virtually across 4 continents, this global movement will light up the night as people hit the road to help cure paralysis in our lifetime.
