Find out more at: RUN IN THE DARK DC

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/walk. 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 Washington D.C. area to Run in the Dark on the 13th of November 2019. The run will take place in National Harbor at 8pm.

Why are we doing it?

Run in the Dark is the Mark Pollock Trust‘s principal fundraising event.  Unbroken by blindness in 1998, adventure athlete Mark Pollock was left paralyzed in 2010. Now, he is exploring the intersection where humans and technology collide and catalyzing collaborations that have never been done before to cure paralysis in our lifetime.  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.    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.
