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 with each other to keep ahead of the virtual Catcher Car. On May 7th, 2017 Wings for Life World Run participants can join the run in Malaysia. Meet up with your friends, download the Wings for Life World Run APP and join all the other people running around University Malaya until the virtual Catcher Car catches you! The race starts at exactly 7:00 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.
The Wings for Life World Run in Kuala Lumpur starts on 7 May 2017 at exactly 7:00 pm local time.
The track is located at the University of Malaya, the oldest university in Malaysia. The pre-determined track is a combination of walking paths and access roads that connect the faculties. Our track will be 6.6km and the entire course is on a nice gravel road so it's suitable for participants of all levels.
The APP Run in Kuala Lumpur is free of charge.
On 7 May 2017 wheelchair participants and runners start side by side at the Wings for Life World Run - APP RUN Kuala Lumpur. All participants start together – just like it should be! The only requirement: wheelchair participants have to start in everyday wheelchairs.
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 Wings for Life World Run App is your time tracking tool. When you are registered the app will start automatically on the event day.
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.
Please make sure to have a fully charged phone on race day.
We will make sure you enjoy the run and have the best experience onsite. Therefore, we will also set up refreshment stations along the track. We will share more detailed information soon.
We are happy to have Kyserun Krew, a Kuala Lumpur based running crew with the aim to inspire others to enjoy the sports we all love, RUNNING, as partner.
Together We Attain Great Miles.
