Wings For Life World Run
Are you a hard-core athlete, a wheelchair user or a once-a-week jogger? Do you want to wear fancy dress, or do you plan to give the Catcher Car a serious challenge? Perfect! Everybody is welcome in the Wings for Life World Run! Together, we’re running for those who can’t.
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. Now in its ninth year, on May 7, 2023 Wings for Life World Run participants in Kenya can also run together in Nairobi.
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 2023-05-07 14:00:00. The Virtual Catcher Car takes off 30 minutes after the start at 14 km/h and steadily increases its speed until the last athletes have been caught. 100% of all donations and the entry fees go directly into spinal cord research projects.
