Key information about Run in the Dark Virtual

  • Before setting out on your Run in the Dark, please refer to your local public health guidelines and adhere to any restrictions regarding running in groups, keeping within a certain radius of your home, exercise time limits or curfews.

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 to donate or fundraise for Collaborative Cures, whose mission is to bring people together to cure paralysis in our lifetime.


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 18 November.

You’ll track your Run in the Dark on the night through our app and join the global leaderboard on 18 November, along with 25,000 runners around the world.

Each sign up receives a medal and also a phone holder with flashing lights – perfect for carrying your phone, or car/house key with you when you train.



You can be part of Run in the Dark wherever you are in the world, from Sydney to San Francisco. Enter now, and then track your time and distance using the Run in the Dark app to join thousands of others walking or running 5k or 10k on Wednesday 18 November at 8 pm local time.


  • Every participant receives a phone holder with flashing lights and medal.
  • Complete a 5k or 10 k individually or in small groups – subject to Government restrictions.
  • Access our online wellness hub from September with training, fitness and nutrition plans.
  • Track your time and distance using our app to join the leaderboard on Run in the Dark.
