The Wings for Life World Run Ambassadors

The Wings for Life World Run Ambassadors

Around the world, hundreds of ambassadors from a vast range of sport disciplines are stepping up to run alongside everyone else running for those who can't.

From international Formula One names like David Coulthard and Max Verstappen to winter sport greats like Luc Alphand and Marcus Hellner, big names both nationally and internationally will line up alongside thousands of regular runners both in 34 official locations and Selfie Runners taking to their own tracks.


Who will you run next to? Which big name will be your Catcher Car driver?



Online registration for the Wings for Life World Run locations closes at 11am UTC on May 4, 2016. Whether you're an elite runner or an absolutely beginner, sign up and you could be running alongside some huge names on May 8. 

100% of all entry fees and donations go directly to spinal cord research projects. .

The fact that you were being chased by a Catcher Car with a celebrity in it was also VERY COOL.

Running is so much easier when you know it's for such a good cause!

Kenny Belaey, Ieper, Belgium

To run, to do something for a better tomorrow and to run with people that I love. It is something special because it is not about winning the race...but winning in life itself.

It's hard to find so many satisfied faces in one place anywhere else :)
