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 it’s fith year, on May 6, 2018 Wings for Life World Run participants in Norway can also run together in Bergen. 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 15km/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.
The track consists of a 60% gravel, 40% road path arranged around the Store Lungegårdsvannet lake. There is no crossroad and clear marking will indicate the optimal and safe way around the lake. Each loop is about 3 km long.
On May 6, 2018 wheelchair participants and runners start side by side at this track. The only requirement: wheelchair participants have to start in everyday wheelchairs.
Fruits, snacks, and drinks (eater, Red Bull and Tailwind) will be provided at the refreshment station. Some music will be played to motivate runners and supporters.
The aid station will be placed somewhere around the lake, not far from the swimming pool.
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 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.
