The catcher car

The Catcher Car is the "moving finish line" of the Wings for Life World Run. You get a head start, and 30 minutes later it begins pursuit. Once it passes you, your race is done. There’s nothing like the adrenaline surge you get when the Catcher Car approaches!

Wings for Life World Run App

The Wings for Life World Run App, available for iOS and Android, is perfect if you want to run your own course and still race at exactly the same time as everyone else worldwide, sharing the experience right down to a Virtual Catcher Car and your name on the Global Result List.
