The Wings for Life World Run is made up of multiple simultaneous road running races around the world. All participants, in all event locations, regardless of age, or gender will start at the same time (7.00 a.m. EST on May 7, 2017). There is no set race distance, time, or finish line. The finish for all participants will be reached when each participant is overtaken by the Catcher Car that will be on course at each event location.

CATCHER CAR

At exactly 3:30 p.m. local time, the Catcher Car will cross the start line and drive the Race Track.  Each Catcher Car in every Event Location will start at the same time and maintain the exact same pace. Over time, each Catcher Car in every Event Location will increase pace simultaneously until the final Participant is passed and a global winner is declared. (See chart below for details regarding the pace of the Catcher Car). The overall winners of all races worldwide will be the final female and final male Participant who covers the greatest distance before being passed by the Catcher Car. Local winners will also be determined. Provisions for local and global winners are set forth in the Terms of Participation.
