WHAT MAKES THIS EVENT SO UNIQUE?
The Wings for Life World Run is a truly unique and global race for both runners and wheelchair participants. Instead of a finish line, competitors race side by side to keep ahead of the virtual Catcher Car. Meet up with your friends, download the Wings for Life World Run App and join all the other people running until the virtual Catcher Car catches you of course. The race starts at exactly 21:00. The virtual Catcher Car takes off 30 minutes after the start at 15km/h and steadily increases its speed until the last athletes have been caught.
The most important point to make is that 100% of all proceeds raised goes towards spinal cord research.
It’s not a matter of ‘if’ spinal cord injuries can be cured, it’s a matter of ‘when’ and the more people that attended the event the more money we can raise.
