All runners around the world will have the chance to join the movement regardless of location, thanks to a unique and innovative App Run concept. Since December 2017, participants have had the option to create their own Run in any place they wish to run. By downloading the Wings for Life World Run App from the iTunes Store or Google Play, eager participants can set up their own run to be part of the global movement on May 6, 2018. As with the classic events at set locations, 100% of all participants’ entry fees go to the Wings for Life foundation.
2018 is set to see the rise of the App Run, with even more compelling locations appearing around the globe, including the original wing-shaped track at Slovakia’s Vysoké Tatry race.
With the Wings for Life World Run App, the possibilities are endless – train hard and run to become the world’s number one in your favorite racetrack using the App’s free training mode, or get creative by organizing the most original App Run with your friends. Last year, stunning locations such as the historic Egyptian pyramids, the tropical Seychelles islands, and New York’s iconic Central Park provided stunning backdrops for App Runs, as participants pitched themselves against the race’s moving finish line.
Businesses can also enter a company team and benefit from taking part in an unforgettable team building experience. Your run can be as serious or as fun as you choose – get kitted up to race for a personal best, or opt for fancy dress. You can even run backwards – the only limit is your imagination.
The App Run will also offer participants the perfect chance to meet their heroes, with the official organized App Runs playing host to a long list of celebrities, including actors, athletes, musicians, and artists.
For those who prefer to opt for the classic event location, join the starting line from a choice of awesome locations around the world, including Munich, Rio de Janeiro, Melbourne, and Kakheti.
