Event: 10k and 5k Melbourne 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 Melbourne 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 $38 donation will play a big part in helping the Mark Pollock Trust to reach its $600,000 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 event will be championed again by Niall Galvin.

The reception team will meet you at P.J. O’Brien’s Irish Pub in Southbank half an hour before the start of the run to complete your registration and hand out the flashing armbands. Please feel free to leave your bags and clothing with the team in the bar.
The start and finish line will be located at Southbank Promenade. The run will continue along the banks of the Yarra River to Punt Bridge and then back along the far bank to Southbank Footbridge. The 5km run will finish at the Southbank Promenade. While the stoic 10km runners will loop around once more.
After the run participants are invited back to P.J’s for a nightcap.
