The Wings for Life World Run is a truly unique and global race for both runners and wheelchair participants. Instead of a finish line, competitors race side by side to keep ahead of the virtual Catcher Car. Now in it’s fourth year, on May 7th, 2017 Wings for Life World Run participants in Denmark can run in Aarhus. No official Wings For Life World Run this year, but that does not mean there won’t be any running. Meet up with your friends, download the Wings for Life World Run APP and join all the other people running around the beautiful Aarhus until the virtual Catcher Car catches you of course. The race starts at exactly 1:00 pm local time. The virtual Catcher Car takes off 30 minutes after the start at 15km/h and steadily increases its speed until the last athletes have been caught. 100% of the Wings for Life World Run entry fees go directly into spinal cord research projects.
