Wings for Life World Run
Location:Other / Virtual App Run, TX
May 9, 2021 / 6:00 am - 10:00 am
The Wings for Life World Run is an annual global charity run that takes place this year on May 9, 2021. The race is built around a unique format that allows all participants across the globe to run together simultaneously and virtually via App teams.
The run is designed for participants to run as long as they can with no predetermined finish line. How does this work? 30 minutes after the race begins, a virtual Catcher Car starts moving and chasing participants. It gradually picks up speed and catches one participant after another until the winner is left standing alone. For those caught by the Catcher Car the race is then successfully completed. In 2020 the global winner was able to run a total of 43.4 miles in 4 hours and 12 minutes before getting caught.
Registration for the eighth edition of the Wings for Life World Run – including the Texas-based App Run – is now open at wingsforlifeworldrun.com. The first 10,000 registered participants will receive an official Wings for Life World Run shirt. Additionally, 100% of all entry fees and donations will go to fund spinal cord injury research via the Wings for Life Foundation.
Hello! I would love for this event to be added to Luke's Locker event calendar. It is a global run that my organization helps promote and I would love to answer any questions that you may have. We also have graphics and social assets for your FB or IG if you would like to post about it. Thanks! -Ross
