Here’s When the Ninth Running of the Gnomes Happens in WoW

It’s almost time for one of World of Warcraft‘s best philanthropic community events. The Running of the Gnomes 2018 has gotten all of its most important details like date, server, and start time.

This year’s event will be held on Saturday, October 13th on the Scarlet Crusade US server starting at 7pm EDT. The event will once more benefit The Cleveland Clinic’s Tuohy Vaccine, a vaccine that can prevent triple-negative breast cancer, a hereditary and particularly lethal form of breast cancer. Last year’s event brought in over $16k for the clinic.

Instructions to join in are much like previous events: login to the specified server and join in with one of the variety of guilds specially created for the event. Unfortunately, the event cannot support cross-realm invites, so those who want to join in will have to create an alt on Scarlet Crusade. Participants are asked to arrive well in advance for guild invites, or join in the official Discord.

If you’d like to donate to the cause, you can do so here. Additional details about the run can be found here.

Our Thoughts

We wish the runners of the event the best of luck and hope that this charity smashes its prior record. All of the love to the myriad pink-haired gnomes of Azeroth!
