    Wings for Life World Run is a global race for runners taking place on 7 May 2023. 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.

    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 & entry fees go directly into spinal cord research projects.
