Run In The Dark

This event has ended

North Dock, Tuesday 14th November

As darkness sweeps around the globe this November, 25,000 people worldwide will get up from their armchairs, slip on their red flashing armbands and pull on their running shoes to run in the dark.

Events kick off in Dublin at 8pm on Tuesday 14 November before thousands of others take part on Wednesday 15 November in 50+ cities.

Run in the Dark offers both 5k and 10k options; walkers are welcome to take part in 5k. Start time is usually 8pm, although this may vary, depending on your location.

If you prefer to run your own route on your own schedule, sign up to the AppRun event and time yourself using the Run in the Dark app from 14-15 November.


Connecting 5k and 10k runners both physically and virtually across 5 continents, Run in the Dark is a global movement lighting up the night to help cure paralysis in our lifetime. All fundraising and donations go to our charity partner Collaborative Cures, whose mission is to cure paralysis in our lifetime.
