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. 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.
Registration opened on the 20th of September 2016.
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.
Don't hesitate to register now, as the starting fee will rise towards the event and the participants limit of this run is set to 4000 runners.
