What is the Wings for Life World Run?

2017 will see the fourth edition of the Wings for Life World Run. The motto is the same as before: We run for those who can’t. It’s not a matter of fitness at all. From absolute beginner to competitive runner, from wheel chair athlete to power walker: Anyone is invited to be part of the run.

The goal of the event is to raise money for the Wings for Life foundation who expedites spinal cord research. One hundred percent of all entry fees go towards projects that all have one common aim: One day, there has to be a cure for spinal paralysis.

Entry fees

  • May 8th 2016 – December 31st 2016: 45.- CHF
  • January 1st 2016 – March 31st 2017: 55.- CHF
  • April 1st 2017 – registration deadline: 65.- CHF


These entry fees include VAT. The revenues from the entry fees go entirely into the Wings for Life fund. 


All participants have to be at least 16 years of age. Wheel chair athletes and runners start side by side in the same race. Sole provision: Wheel chair athletes have to use their everyday wheelchairs for the race.

Important note to everybody: It is not allowed to wear earphones during the run because runners thus risk not hearing the catcher car approach.
