It’s time to glow crazy on 22nd October and take in the stunning grounds of Chirk Castle – in the dark!

You can run, jog or walk, join with friends, take your family or do it solo  - the choice is yours.

We can’t wait to light up this incredible castle again and see everyone waving their glow sticks to support seriously ill local children.

Complete 4K over two laps amidst music, cheering spectators and finish your Dark Run in our medal arena where you will pick up your glow-in-the-dark medal and extra special goody bag.

Little/tired legs are more than welcome to complete one lap and enjoy their medal just the same.

There is no dress code but if you fancy going all neon or dressing up in Halloween-themed outfits then feel free. We always love the colourful scenes our Dark Run crowds create.

The evening will kick off with a warm-up Clubbercise to get you all warmed up at 6.15pm and at 6.30pm sharp the starter hooter will sound and you'll be on your way!

Sign up today and help ensure we can continue to be there for every child that needs us.
