The Lost Lectures

Charlie Dark (Run Dem Crew)

View the talk

Charlie Dark is the shadowy figure behind Run Dem Crew. His story starts with a series of solitary night-time runs. He chose night to hide his ineptitude (years travelling the world as a DJ and partying with the Beastie Boys had ransacked his stamina). Soon, he became rather good at running, but stuck to the same format; touring the streets under the cover of darkness proved to be a liberating experience that he believes saved his life. He decided to share this positive discovery and founded Run Dem Crew, a growing family of runners that fly by night, using the exercise to inspire social change, empowering some of the city’s most vulnerable residents. He insists that Run Dem Crew is not ‘cool’…we’ll let you lot be the judge!
