ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW FOR THE WINGS FOR LIFE WORLD RUN 2016

The race day is just over the corner! Although we always try to get all the information available, its always a good idea to make a compilation with the basic info so during the race you only have to worry about the Catcher Car. Let's go!

 

What's the starting time and the place where we begin? Can we see the route on detail?
As you know, the race will start on Sunday 8 May at 13: 00h (Spain local time). The start line will be placed at the garden of Turía, close to the Hemisfèric of the City of Arts and Sciences of Valencia. Check this map to see the points of interest.

Find out here the full route details.

What is the deadline for registrations? Where and when can I pick up my run number and runner bag?
On the website until May 4 , after that day both actions (registration and to collect the runners number) you will need to go to the Puma store at "El Corte Ingles Pintor Sorolla" from Valencia , 5th floor, during the following schedule:


Thursday 5th, 14: 00 - 21:00 pm
Friday 6 , 1:00 p.m -  9:00 pm

You can also sign up for the race and pick up your race number at the event itself. During the morning before the event starts. Between 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 am. However we truly recommend you to do all these steps previously so you don't miss your opportunity to join the race.

Can we sign up and run the race as a team?
Of course! Once you're registered for the race, all you have to do is create your team here and invite your friends to join you and run with you .

When does the race finish?
This race is so different from others that here you won't find a finish line, but depends on you. The race will finish as soon as you are overlapped by the "Catcher Car".

What's on the free runner bag? Will there wardrobe ?
Just for running we will give you a free running bag where you will find : A technique Puma shirt for the race, a Garmin headband, a BFGoodrich cap, a wrist strap from Renault , informative Flyers and a  Red Bull. About the wardrobe, there will be room to store your bag or other belongings close to the starting point. As recommendation please not to leave valuable objects here.

There will be some free food and drinks after the race?
Sure! All participants will have available a serving of paella to regain strength. And also some water or a fresh Red Bull.

Where can I park my car?
The starting point is close to the downtown, so if it's possible we encourage you to come by foot or using the by public transport service. Anyway, if you have to use the car, the "Aqua" parking mall is the closest to the starting point . There are not special rates for runners .

Where can I sleep?

How could I go back to the starting point?
We have located buses along the route that will pick the runners from the race to the starting point in the following kilometers:

Bus 1: km 5 (El Corte Inglés Nuevo Centro)
Bus 2: km 11 (Avenida Maestro Rodríguez)
Bus 3: Km  15 (Same place as bus 1)
Bus 4: Km 23 (Av. dels Tarongers)
Bus 5: Km 27 (Port, astilleros MSC building)

There will be two extra mini buses driving from km 35 for all the runners who reach this point.

Can I run in a different location?If you can not join the official location in Spain, you can download our App "Selfie Run" and run at the same time as the rest of the world but from wherever you want. You can choose your route and of course you will have your personal virtual Catcher Car that will drive at same pace as the official car. 

If I'm not running, can I track my family and friends who are running?
Yes! There will be a live streaming on the Wings for Life website but as there are many locations running simultaneously they will probably not be on the screens the time we would like. What you can do is tracking your family and friends and follow their race on the map. All runners will carry a GPS to show their current location.

Where can I see the race results?
Once the global race finishes, we will publish the results on the Wings for Life World Run website. Here you could see how far you get and your position on the global ranking. If you are part of a team or are selfie runner, you will be in a special section where you could also check out your results.
