THOUSANDS of runners took part in the Run In The Dark event in Dublin city to raise funds for the Mark Pollock Trust trying to find a cure for spinal cord injury.

The Life Style Sports Run in the Dark was established in response to Mark's paralysing accident in 2010.

He became blind at the age of 22, and despite then becoming paralysed it has not dented his hunger for adventure.

Runners could choose to do 5km or 10km in a run that started in darkness at 7.30pm last night at Grand Canal Dock and took in the north and south quays.

People took part in the annual runs that are held in Dublin, Cork, Belfast, London and Manchester, as well as pop-up events worldwide.
