This year, all Wings for Life World Run participants start alone with the App. Our tip: A virtual team with friends or colleagues takes the fun factor even higher. Here are a few ideas for an extraordinary community experience.
COME UP WITH A SPECIAL NAME
Of course you can simply name your team after yourself. But maybe you have a creative idea for something unusual. An experience that connects you and your friends. Your company name. Or an insider tag that only you and your team members will understand.
CHOOSE BETWEEN PRIVATE AND PUBLIC
Your virtual team can stay private so only your loved ones can join. Or you can make your team public and give people worldwide the chance to start under your team name.
TELL YOUR STORY
What inspired you to be part of the Wings for Life World Run? A personal experience? Your desire to run? The fun? Tell your story and motivate others to join your virtual team. The hashtags #wingsforlife #worldrun help you to reach as many people as possible.
CREATE YOUR TEAM LOOK
A shared look for your virtual team strengthens the sense of community. Decide together about what’s right for you. T-shirts with a unique message, a special color, fancy costumes, colorful wigs – there are no limits to your creativity.
STRENGTHEN THE TEAM SPIRIT
Start a Facebook or WhatsApp group to stay in touch with your team. Here you can motivate yourself, exchange ideas and push each other. Photos from training and selfies on race day will strengthen your team spirit even more!
