Dark Run 5k

October 31, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

It’ll soon be time for Telford’s second Dark Run 5k! This 5k family Fun Run, is open to all ages and abilities. Dark Run will take place here in Telford Town Park, starting and finishing at the Visitor Centre. The Visitor Centre toilets and café facility will be available for the duration of the event and a water station will be provided on the route. Sunset is at 4:42pm that evening, so allowing enough time for darkness to fall the start time will be 6pm.

Participants must bring a torch/head torch! You will be given a glow stick with lanyard and even a GLOW IN THE DARK MEDAL as part of your entry fee! Dark Run places will be on a first come, first served basis and are currently limited to 500 participants. All runners/walkers under the age of 16, will be required to stay with a parent/guardian for the duration of the event. The route will be marked with glow sticks and marshalled at all junctions, but please do bring a torch/head torch as the park is VERY dark.

So what is the aim of Dark Run 5k?

First and foremost, this is a Fun Run and not a Race. There will be no prizes for first place, or finish times for the event. Our aim is to have fun with friends and family, whilst lighting up the park! Most importantly of all… we want to put light into the lives of the children and their families, at Hope House Children’s Hospices. In addition to your entry fee, participants will be asked to try and raise a minimum of £20 in sponsorship for Hope House.

Hope House provide specialist nursing care and support to life-limited children, young people and young adults from Shropshire, Cheshire, North and Mid Wales.

Their support extends to the whole family – from diagnosis, throughout the lifetime of the child and beyond.


Please join us on 31st October 2015 and help us to raise lots of money for this fabulous charity, it’s wonderful children and their families.

We hope to see you there!
