Car Sharing to the raceThis year we are using a car sharing website developed by a runner that aims to save you money, and reduce the carbon footprint of the event:
We would be most grateful if EVERYONE coming to the Dark Skies Run @ Galloway race could try out the site (even if you don't expect to car share). It only takes a minute and is completely free to use. As well as saving you petrol money, it will ease the parking headaches for us at the race.
