Announce date ASAP so I hopefully don't miss it due to pre-booked hols 😄. Same weekend next year would be fine or afterwards.
I thought it was well organaised and enjoyed running it.
Hi guys. I would like to see our local radio station involved. Advertisements in the local papers, businesses that say they are going to turn up actually turn up for you. Activities for the children eg face painters with glow in the dark face paints. Also the mayor or the mayoress to come down and actually support the event also. Burger van or fast food vans when finished to get a hot drink and something to eat. Lastly a whole group photograph before and at the end of the race for people to be able to buy once they are ready.
Hi Jac! First of all, thank you SO MUCH for your amazing warm up for our participants! Secondly... We love your ideas! This year had a few (behind the scenes) hiccups, such as no catering facilities. The Really Good Pizza Company had offered to come along, but didn't. The Council had said there would be catering there, there was none. I absolutely love your ideas about a group photograph and face painting! We will try our very hardest to make this a reality, if we are able to go ahead next year! :o)
My previous comment is for what i would like to see next year. The event was a huge success and throughly enjoyed myself. Would love to be a part of it again next year
Hi Paul! Next year will only be able to go ahead if we are able to obtain local commercial sponsorship (fingers crossed). About 70% of this year's event was paid for by the wonderful local businesses who gave us their support. Without them we simply can't make it happen and until we have them on-board, we can't announce a date. We will of course announce a date, if personal circumstances allow us to put on an event next year! :o)
We thought it was really well organised. The warm up was fun, we'll marshalled great run and goody bag.we would love to run this again next year hopefully?
Make the Virtual Darkrun an option from the start for those of us who live at the opposite end of the country! We had great fun doing our own (pitch)dark run and earning an awesome medal :)
Please give us your feedback about Dark Run 5k and also let us know what you would do differently, thank you!
