Run through the historical centre, lovely nature and local villages

Here you'll find all the actual information for runners and wheelchair participants.

Also in 2017, we run for those who can’t. And, of course, this year as well, in Slovakia in the heart of Europe . On the 7th of May 2017 in the centre of Bratislava, another Wings for Life World Run will take place. The starting signal will be fired at 1 pm sharp, CET and the start will be located in front of Eurovea shopping centre. Half an hour later, at 1.30 pm, the Catcher Car will begin its pursuit of the runners: when the car passes a runner, their race is over.

The whole entry fee goes entirely to the foundation Wings for Life. The goal is to collect donations in order to find a cure for spinal cord injury.

Map of the run is located on the end of this page.
