Keep running: Wings for Life World Run 2018 is coming!

Here comes the fourth edition of the biggest street race in the world

Location and Course Description

Wings for Life World Run will return to Brazil for the fifth year, but now we have new home for 2018: Rio de Janeiro!


In our unique event concept, all wheelchair participants are part of the global Wings for Life World Run and can compete with the runners. We will try to accommodate all participants in wheelchair but due to the global character of the race special rules will need to be enforced to obtain a valid result (see Rulebook)

Timing and Race Number Handout

You will receive a race number that contains a timing tag that is activated when you pass the Catcher Car at the start line. This tag then registers your result when the Catcher Car passes you at the end of your race. Race number handout will happen the week leading up- and on the event weekend. More information will be provided in the months before the event. 

Information about kit's delivery will be updated soon!
