RUN IN THE DARK CHICAGO

Fundraising infographic US Dollars.jpg

Join us in Chicago on Wednesday 15th November, 2017 for a 5k/10k run at 8pm.

Your $30 donation will play a big part in helping the Mark Pollock Trust to reach its $600,000 fundraising aim this year to fast-track a cure for paralysis, which will change the lives of millions of paralysed people around the world.

There are a limited number of places available so make sure to sign up early so you don't miss out!

THE CHAMPION:

This year’s pop-up run will again be championed by James Dolan.

The Route: 

The start and finish line will be located in downtown Chicago at Millennium Park (on Michigan Avenue) . The run will wind through park and extend from Randolph (north border) down to Roosevelt (south border) before winding back up Michigan Avenue to where we started. We have used part of this route in prior runs, and the skyline, Cloud Gate, and Art Institute offer a great backdrop for a "brisk" run in November. The 5km run will finish back where we started near Michigan Ave and Washington, while any committed stoic 10km runners loop around one extra time while braving the November Chicago winds

THE AFTER PARTY:

After the race has finished all runners are encouraged to reunite at Monk’s Pub (205 West Lake Street) for an obligatory post-run pint (or Irish night cap for those that want to come out and not run) and of course to raise a toast to Mark. 

Your FAQs answered: 

Your entry fee of $30 will be donated to the Mark Pollock Trust mission to find and connect people worldwide to fast-track a cure for paralysis.

You will receive  a run entry, Run in the Dark buff and flashing armband.

Refreshments will be distributed to all participants at the finish line.

Chip-timing is not in operation for our pop-up events.

It is important that you arrive 15 minutes in advance of the start time (8pm) so that you can receive your buff and flashing armband.

A group photo will be taken with all participants in advance of the run.

Registration will close at 6pm sharp on Tuesday 14th of November.
