WHY WE RUN IN THE DARK
As darkness sweeps around the globe in mid-November, 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.
Running separately while connecting socially across 7 continents, this global movement will light up the night as people hit the road to Run in the Dark for the Mark Pollock Trust and donate or fundraise for our charity partner (to be announced in September) to help cure paralysis in our lifetime.
RUN IN THE DARK VIRTUAL
Run in the Dark is back with a virtual facelift! With the impact of COVID 19, we can’t run side by side at mass participation events this year, so we’ve built something different for our Run in the Dark community so we can still light up the night together on Wednesday 11 November.
From September, you can download our new app with fitness and training plans, exercise tutorials, healthy recipes, and wellness content on topics like sleep and anxiety. Most importantly, you’ll track your Run in the Dark and join the global leaderboard on 11 November, along with 25,000 runners around the world.
Sign up by 31 August to receive your free tech top, medal and also a phone holder with flashing lights – perfect for carrying your phone, or car/house key with you when you train.
