Event: 5k Old Buckenham 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 Old Buckenham to Run in the Dark on 14th November 2018 and support our ongoing research to find a cure for paralysis in our lifetime.
Your £21.50 donation will play a big part in helping the Mark Pollock Trust to reach its £440,000 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 again be championed by Chris Clarke, from Belfast, who lives in Old Buckenham.
YOUR FAQS ANSWERED:

Old Buckenham Route
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.
After the race has finished all runners are encouraged to reunite at the Ox and Plough pub for the obligatory night cap and to raise a toast to Mark Pollock.
Whether you are completing the 5km run or 10km run, please 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! There is some parking available outside Old Buckenham Church, or in the road onto Old Buckenham High School.
