Run in the Dark is a global event that takes place in mid-November when darkness covers the planet. Around 25,000 people will take part in the race. In Luxembourg alone, 2,000 runners are expected this year. Tickets were sold out long before the event.
On November 15, on the banks of the river Alzette, the race will start at 5 and 10 thousand meters. The start of the event is traditionally at 8 p.m., but all participants will gather a little earlier: around 7:45 p.m. to prepare for the start and get into the atmosphere.
Run in the Dark aims to support people fighting against paralysis. This disease, which destroys not only the body, but also the soul, can be cured, and therefore all participants' contributions will be donated to Collaborative Cures, a charity dedicated to helping paralyzed patients.
