Notice: Run in the Dark in Cork City - Wed 13th Nov 2019

Following the success of last years Run in the Dark charity events, they will be repeated again this year in various cities like Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway. The date is Wednesday the 13th of November 2019.

Update 4th Nov 2019 :  Fewer than 200 places left now.
Update 8th Nov 2019 : SOLD OUT!!

From the organisers... Run in the Dark Cork – Join us for a 5k or 10k run on Wednesday 13th November 2019
Run in the Dark Cork takes place on Wednesday the 13th of November at 9.00pm. Every November, as darkness sweeps the globe, thousands of people in 50 cities across the world will pull on their running shoes and red flashing armbands and hit the streets to Run in the Dark.
We know there are lots of running events out there, so why choose Run in the Dark?!

Apart from being a unique night run taking place in iconic locations around the world, there’s also an important cause fuelling this fundraising run. Run in the Dark is a global running movement helping to cure paralysis in our lifetime.

Run in the Dark is organised by the Mark Pollock Trust, named after blind Irish adventure athlete Mark Pollock. Unbroken by blindness in 1998, Mark Pollock suffered a catastrophic spinal cord injury in 2010 when he fell from a second story window that left him paralysed. As Mark strives to walk again, his most complex journey is ahead of him – to find a cure for paralysis.

By taking part in Run in the Dark you are enabling ground-breaking collaborations and research which could change the lives of millions of paralysed people around the world.

Every donation, every step, every study, moves us towards a cure for paralysis and enabling people to walk again.

The Cork event last year attracted a huge number of runners and it looks likely that a similar number will want to take part in this unique event around the streets of the city at night this year as well.

More details can be found on the Run in the Dark website.
