WHAT IS THE WINGS FOR LIFE WORLD RUN

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 side by side to keep ahead of the virtual Catcher Car. Now in its sixth year, on May 5, 2019 Wings for Life World Run participants in Switzerland can also run together in Basel. Meet up with your friends, download the Wings for Life World Run App and join all the other people running until the virtual Catcher Car catches you of course. The race starts at exactly 13:00. The virtual Catcher Car takes off 30 minutes after the start at 14 km/h and steadily increases its speed until the last athletes have been caught. 100% of all donations and the entry fees go directly into spinal cord research projects.

TRACK

The meeting point is at the end of the Mittleren Allee of the sport facility St. Jakob (behind the athletics stadium). From there we walk together to the start which is at the beginning of the Birsstrasse, located between the beachvolleyball fields and the river Birs. The circular route goes along the Birs, passes the power plant Neue Welt up to the crossroad Baselstrasse / Hauptstrasse / Mühlemattstrasse. From here we go on Mühlemattsrasse back to Birsstrasse.

WHEELCHAIR PARTICIPANTS

Unfortunately this track has sections which will be difficult for wheelchair users. Please check out other App Runs close to you or start as an individual participant wherever you want.

REFRESHMENT STATION AND LOCAL SET UP

There won't be any refreshment stations along the track - so make sure to bring your own drinks and snacks if needed.

TIMING AND RACE NUMBER

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.

The virtual Catcher Car takes off 30 minutes after the start and as soon as it overtakes you, you will get clear signals via the App.

Please make sure to have a fully charged phone on race day.
