Event: 10k and 5k Kilkenny 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 Kilkenny to Run in the Dark on the 14th November 2018 and support our ongoing research to find a cure for paralysis in our lifetime.
Your €25 donation will play a big part in helping the Mark Pollock Trust to reach its €500,000 fundraising aim.
Every donation, every step, every study, moves us towards a cure for paralysis and enabling people to walk again.
There are a limited number of places available so make sure to sign up early so you don’t miss out!
This year’s pop-up run will be championed by Máire Griffith.
In return for your donation, you will receive a run entry and Run in the Dark flashing arm cuff.
Refreshments will be distributed to all participants at the finish line.
Chip-timing is not in operation for our pop-up events.
Registration will close at 6pm sharp on Tuesday 13th November 2018.
Whether you are completing the 5km run or 10km run, please aim to arrive at 19.30 (7.30pm) so that we can ensure everyone will receive their arm cuff and have a group photo before we go running!
The 5km route starts from the Castle gate, down the canal walk back, into loop a section of the Medieval mile to the last mile down Kieran street.
The finish line takes you back to the Castle Gate.
Those wishing to complete 10km may loop around once more. The route will have signs and ushers to guide you along the scenic route.
