The children will show the grown-ups how it’s done on May 2, 2015

The first Wings for Life run was impressing. Especially astonishing was the number of children who wanted to participate. They wanted to be part, when, for the first time in history, the entire world ran for those who can’t – this year, we finally fulfilled this wish.

On May 2, 2015, children, competing in wheelchairs or running, will take the global Wings for Life World Run into the next generation and keep the focus on finding a cure for spinal cord injury.

In Switzerland there will be the following standardised runs for kids and teens:

  • Kids in the category I (6- to 7-year-olds) and II (8- to 9-year-olds)
    1000 m Children’s run for the 6- to 9-year-olds and all children and teenagers in wheelchairs
  • Kids in the category III (10- to 11-year-olds) and IV (12- to 13-year-olds)
    3000 m Children’s run for the10- to 13-year-olds
  • Teens in the category V (14- to 15-year-olds)
    5000m Teenager’s Run for teens between the age of 14 and 15 years


For the young participants, the race starts at 5 pm: they will be running against time in three categories. Who will be the first to reach the finish line? Only those who are 15 years and younger at the day of the race are allowed to participate. Those who are 16 years and older can already join the main race on Sunday!

Everybody is welcome – are you coming as well? For the first time, you can race against friends from all over the world and be part of a truly global event. Get your class together, grab your friends and show the grown-up’s how it’s done. The entry fee is 10 CHF. Of course, here also, 100% of the entry fee goes to the foundation Wings For Life. Register here and be part of the official Children’s and Teenager’s run for Wings for Life Run in Olten!

Challenge your friends to the race of a lifetime
