This week members of BLBC took time out of training for Cambridge Winter Head to volunteer their time at Run in the Dark on the 15th November 2017. It is an event where thousands gather in Battersea Park to run 5 or 10k for charity. Run in the Dark plays a vital role in funding The Mark Pollock Trust’s mission to find and connect people around the world to fast-track a cure for paralysis.

12 members of the club, freshers and seniors got together to help the event run smoothly. We were in charge of marshalling along the course for the 2400+ runners to ensure they were all safe in the dark, having a good time and going the right way! In addition to this we also had several volunteers on bag drop and just being of general assistance in the chaos leading up the run.

Everyone did a great job, a big thank you to all who helped out!
