The perfect venue for the Wings for Life World Run!
The event is located at the Chasséveld, Breda. You can gather at this place while enjoying some music, a snack and a drink or a live feed from the run. Your team has its own mark at the starting grid if you’re running in a team with more than 100 runners. You’ll have to move to the start area no later than 12:30.
The event area will be open during the event and will still be open upon returning after the race. There will be several food trucks and there will be a big screen to follow the event, both nationally and globally.

The start of the event will take place at the Claudius Prinsenlaan. Start boxes are open from 11.30 AM. The route towards the start is marked by signs. The number on your starting number corresponds with the number of the start area. The warming up will start at 12.40 AM, so make sure you’re on time. The race begins at 1 PM and it’s up to you to stay in front of the Catcher Car as long as possible.
DURING THE RACE
Because of safety reasons and possible obstacles we strongly recommend to keep right as much as possible during the race.
There will be a care post every 4-5 kilometers. Thus, there will be water, Red Bull, Cola & bananas in order to provide you with new energy.
First aid will be near all day long at the start area and every care post. Always warn the emergencies in case you, or someone else, are suffering.
Your race will be over as soon the Catcher Car passes you. Those who won’t make it further then 4 kilometers are expected to walk back to the start area. Make sure you walk past the exit stop of the shuttle buses to receive your well-deserved medal. There are a variety of busses available for those who are running more than 4 kilometers. Make sure you’ll follow the track forward to the next bus and never go back.
WHEN WILL YOU GET CAUGHT?
Check it here with the goal calculator.
During the Wings for Life World Run, wheelchair participants can compete with runners. We will always try to meet the wishes of wheelchair participants. But due to the international character of this run, there are certain rules to obey. For example, handbikes are not allowed due to the speed they can easily reach. Because of that the safety of participants can not be guaranteed. Simplified: only a day-to-day wheelchair (with a small wheel as absorber). If you have any questions about this, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Breda has a reputation as one of the Netherlands' most hospitable cities, and its magnificent historic center was proclaimed the best in the country in 2009. Three years later, the city also won the prize for the country's best hospitality industry. On top of that, the rivers and forests surrounding Breda make it a very green environment. Basically, Breda has got what it takes to make the Wings for Life World Run an experience you'll never forget!
