Every November, as darkness sweeps the globe, thousands of people from over 50 cities will pull on their running shoes and red flashing armbands and hit the streets to Run in the Dark.
As runners flow through the streets and light up the night, they join the global movement helping to cure paralysis in our lifetime. Join us for a 5k or 10k run in one of our 5 official locations – Dublin, Cork, Belfast, London, Hong Kong, or join our volunteers in pop-up events in cities worldwide.
Run in the Dark is the main fundraiser for the Mark Pollock Trust. Funds raised by Run in the Dark events helps the Mark Pollock Trust to run a lab focused on running research studies and clinical trials aimed at developing meaningful therapies for people with paralysis.
Unbroken by blindness in 1998, Mark Pollock suffered a catastrophic spinal cord injury in 2010 that left him paralysed. As Mark strives to walk again, his most complex journey is ahead of him – to find a cure for paralysis.
