This run is truly for everyone

We do not have a fixed distance. In the Wings for Life World Run, you get chased by a moving finish line – the Catcher Car. You can run as far and as fast as you want. Once overtaken, you are a finisher! At the very same time people from all around the globe are running, walking or rolling with you. Wherever they want. Either with the App or at a Flagship Run. Together, we run for those who can’t. For people who can’t enjoy the freedom of moving their body. We run to help find a cure for spinal cord injury.
