The Wings for Life World Run is a global charity run to raise funds to find a cure for spinal cord injury. All participants start on May 5, 2019 at exactly the same time worldwide. The little twist of the global movement is that runners not running towards a finish line but away from the finish line which is a catcher car and chases runners from the back.

RACE FOR EVERYONE
The Wings for Life World Run is for runners and wheelchair users of all abilities, from beginners to professional athletes. Everyone runs side by side for those who can’t.
A UNIQUE RACE FORMAT
There is no static finish line, no set distance to cover, no set time to beat. Thirty minutes after the start the virtual Catcher Car begins to chase the participants. The Catcher Car is the moving finish line. The goal is to stay ahead of it as long as you can. When the Catcher Car catches up with you (virtually for all World Run App runners), your race is over.
