Wings For Life World Run

In 2014, a new race format was born. Runners of all abilities – fun runners and fanatics, young and old – from 164 nations ran at the very same time on six continents and in 34 locations before the very last runner, Lemawork Ketema (Ethiopia) was overtaken after 78km by the "Catcher Car".

The 2015 edition of the Wings for Life World Run will be on May 3, 12pm with new tracks and entirely new countries. Registration is now open for everyone. Starting almost 40.000 participants at exactly the same time, worldwide, is one challenge, but the Wings for Life World Run goes one step further and changes the face of racing altogether: thirty minutes after the athletes start, the "Catcher Car" will begin to follow them. Driving slowly first but increasing its speed at given periods in time, the "Catcher Car" is the moving finish line. It will pass the athletes, registering their digital chips on its way to the leaders. The last athlete to be caught worldwide is the global champion
