The majestic Niagara Falls will give runners in Canada a truly awe-inspiring backdrop to start their World Run journey. Not only one of the nation's most cherished landmarks, Niagara Falls is officially recognized as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of North America.
An average seasonal temperature of 14' C make for ideal running conditions; not too hot and not too cold. With an average monthly precipitation of 75mm, it is definitely the regions 'wet season' so runners should prepare with light rain gear just incase.

It’s a fun 5k race, a 10k race, it’s a marathon race, it’s whatever distance race you want it to be. It is your race. On May 7, 2017, at exactly 11am UTC, the Wings for Life World Run will simultaneously start the world over. Then, 30 minutes later, the Catcher Cars will set off, chasing runners until the last female and male running are caught. 100% of all the registration fees go straight to Wings for Life-funded spinal cord injury research projects.
Everyone! Anyone! No experience needed! However, you must be 16+ years old to race. Join the thousands of other runners and wheelchair participants on the starting line and share in this global running race.
At 11.30am UTC, thirty minutes after the start, a Catcher Car sets off at each location. As long as you stay in front of the car, you stay in the race. When the Catcher Car passes you, your race is over. Men and women, young and old, everyone is out there, running for those who can’t, having fun, racing family and friends, near and far for one great cause: the Wings for Life foundation.
There will be buses following the Catcher Car and will pick up runners at each feed station. The feed stations will be every 5 km apart and will include Red Bull, Cytosport Isotonic and water.
