Join us in Old Buckenham on Wednesday 15th November, 2017 for a unique 5k & 10k run in the dark!

Your £21.50 donation will play a big part in helping the Mark Pollock Trust to reach its £420,000 fundraising aim this year to fast-track a cure for paralysis, which will change the lives of millions of paralysed people around the world.

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 again be championed by Chris Clarke, from Belfast, who lives in Old Buckenham. 


The start and finish line will be located outside the Ox and plough Pub.  The 5km route will go past the Old Buckenham Windmill, through the village of Stacksford, along Fen Street and then back to the Ox and Plough Pub . Those wishing to complete 10km may loop around once more.  

The After Party:

After the race has finished all runners are encouraged to reunite at the Ox and Plough pub for the obligatory Irish night cap and of course to raise a toast to Mark Pollock.  
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 flashing armband and buff and have a group photo before we go running!
