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 fith year, on May 6, 2018 Wings for Life World Run participants in Australia can also run in Adelaide. Meet up with your friends, download the Wings for Life World Run APP and join all the other people running until the virtual Catcher Car catches you of course. The race starts at exactly 20:30. 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 all donations and the entry fees go directly into spinal cord research projects.
The Adelaide App Run will be held at Victoria Park Race Course and will consist of a 2.1 km, flat, bitumen, wheel chair friendly loop around the Adelaide 500 V8 race track.
Our track is open to both runners and wheelchair participants.
An Energy Station will be at the event providing participants with Red Bull, water, muesli bars and fruit. A BBQ will also be available for a cold coin donation which will provide a more substantial meal post race.
You will receive your personal race number via email and it’s also available next to your starting number on the website a couple of days before the race.

The virtual Catcher Car takes off 30 minutes after the start and as soon as it overtakes you you will get a sound signal and your phone will vibrate.
