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 eleventh year, on May 5, 2024 Wings for Life World Run participants in Switzerland can also run together in Neuchâtel. 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 1:00:00 PM. 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 course will take place on the route of the BCN Tour de Lignières stage, giving participants the opportunity to do stage reconnaissance. An incredible view of the three lakes will give way to forest trails on this 10.1km loop with 225m of positive ascent, to be completed as many times as possible.

Wheelchair participants

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

Refreshment station and local set up

Yes, this track has a refreshment station! You will find the following on site: Drinks, fruit and refreshments will be available at the start and halfway through the loop.

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.
