Event: 5k Run in the Dark in Inch Beach, Kerry
Date: 13th November 2019
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 on Inch Beach to Run in the Dark on 13th November 2019. The run will take place on at 8pm.
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).
There are a limited number of places available so make sure to sign up early so you don’t miss out!
This year’s Inch Beach run will again be championed by Mike O’Shea. Mike O Shea is a Kerry based adventurer with a passion for the great outdoors and also for fundraising for great causes. Owner of WK Fitness gym in Dingle, Mike is delighted to help bring Run in the Dark to Kerry.
