RUN IN THE DARK SYDNEY

Event: 10k and 5k Sydney Run in the Dark

Date: TBA

Time: TBA

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 or 10k 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 in Sydney to Run in the Dark on 13th November 2019. The run will take place at Barangaroo Reserve at 8pm.

You can choose between running 5k or 10k… 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 or 10k 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).

After the race has finished all runners are invited to PJ O’Briens for post-run sociables to refuel and raise a toast to Mark.
