As darkness sweeps around the globe from 9th – 16th November 2022, 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.

Connecting runners both physically and virtually across 4 continents, this global movement will light up the night as people hit the road to help cure paralysis in our lifetime.

  • Each entry includes a run number with timing chip and flashing armband to light up the night as you run.
  • Receive a limited edition Run in the Dark long-sleeved tech top if you sign up by 16th September.
  • Your run pack will be posted to you in advance.
  • Join thousands of others taking part in official locations Dublin, Cork, Belfast and London, to receive your official time.
  • Receive your medal at the finish line and download your digital certificate to mark your achievement!
