Gaisce – the President’s Award
About Run in the Dark
Run in the Dark 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 or 10k run. For others, it means pushing themselves outside their comfort zone and trying a new activity. For Gaisce participants, it means training on a regular basis to build up fitness and feel healthier, no matter what point where they’re starting from.
Run in the Dark Gaisce Challenge Partner
Run in the Dark facilitates Gaisce participants to complete the Physical Recreation challenge by providing a specialised training programme, which will enable participants to improve their fitness levels from basic level to being fit enough to run 10k, or to assist participants who already run to make gains in their training.
Find out more about Run in the Dark training plans, including downloads for beginner/intermediate and advanced runners.
Setting a goal – Run in the Dark on 13th November
Gaisce participants will have the option to sign up to take part in Run in the Dark virtually on Wednesday 17th November 2021, giving them a goal to work towards, and to feel part of a community of 20,000 around the world taking part to run 5k or 10k.
Setting up a school run
Run in the Dark will also facilitate participants to combine this challenge with the Personal Skill challenge by supporting them to set up and managing a Run in the Dark in their school or local area. Participants will learn how to organise and manage an event, manage volunteers, and a run social media campaign.

About Run in the Dark
Run in the Dark is the Mark Pollock Trust‘s principal fundraising event.
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 or 10k 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).
