Event: 10k and 5k Chicago Run in the Dark
Date: 14th November 2018
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.
Join us in Chicago to Run in the Dark on the 14th November 2018 and support our ongoing research to find a cure for paralysis in our lifetime.

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.
