Event: 5k Edinburgh Run in the Dark
As darkness sweeps around the globe in mid-November, 25,000 people in 50 cities worldwide will get up from their armchairs, slip on their red flashing armbands and pull on their running shoes to complete a 5k run.
Together, from Sydney to San Francisco, they will light up the night as they hit the road to Run in the Dark.
Join hundreds of fellow runners in Edinburgh to Run in the Dark on 13th November 2019. The run will take place at The Canon’s Gait Pub at 7pm.
And if your running shoes are a little dusty, you can even walk the 5k route.
Through Run in the Dark, Mark Pollock aims to inspire people to build resilience and collaborate with others so that, together, they achieve more than they thought possible. For some that means gathering a group of friends or colleagues to train hard and get fit with a 5k run. For others it means building a team of experts to perform better. For us, at the Mark Pollock Trust, it means supporting Mark to deal with the ongoing physical, psychological and financial impact of his catastrophic spinal cord injury, while also allowing him to pursue his personal mission to cure paralysis in our lifetime (Click here to learn more about Mark’s mission).
This year’s pop-up run will be championed by Nicole Wright.
