Date: Wednesday 14th November
Time: 8pm

About Run In The Dark: Grand Cayman will be representing the Cayman Islands and the Caribbean in this year's Run in the Dark championed by Hannah Foreman and Sarah Lewis.

As darkness falls on Wednesday 14th November 2018, thousands of people all over the world will be donning their running shoes and red flashing armbands to Run In The Dark For Mark. In over 50 cities worldwide they will be part of a living light show flowing through the streets like lava. There are 5 official locations - Dublin, Cork, Belfast, London and Manchester - and pop-up events led by volunteers in cities worldwide including Cayman. So as 8pm sweeps around the globe, 5 km and 10 km runs will unite a community of people helping to fast-track a cure for paralysis.

Check out how your participation in Run In The Dark will help by listening to this short radio documentary about the story and science behind the Trust's mission to fast track a cure for paralysis.

The Route: The run is one or two loops of a 5K circuit that starts and finishes at Margaritaville in George Town. 5K walkers/runners will do one circuit, those running the 10K will do two circuits.

From Margaritaville participants will run south down South Church Street for 2 km before turning left into Denham Thompson Way. At the end of Walkers Road turn left back towards Margaritaville. At the junction of Walkers Rd and Goring Rd, participants should take a left into Goring Avenue and left again towards South Church Street. After turning right onto South Church Street participants finish with the loop of Heroes Square turning right into Cardinal Avenue at the corner of Margaritaville, left up Edwards Street, left again into Fort Street and back down to Margaritaville.

Please aim to arrive at least 15 minutes in advance of the start time (8pm) so that we can ensure everyone will receive their flashing armband and buff before taking a group photo before we go running!

After Party at Margaritaville: After the race has finished all runners are encouraged to reunite upstairs at Margaritaville for a free raffle prize draw and of course to raise a toast to Mark.
