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 it’s sixth year, on May 5, 2019 Wings for Life World Run participants in United States can also run together in Kansas City. 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 06:00. 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

This scenic and fully handicap accessible route runs through Berkley Riverfront Park just north of River Market in Kansas City, Missouri. Runners will be along the Missouri River taking Riverfront Heritage Trail to the eastern edge of the park. From there, runners will turn around and cross underneath the Heart of America Bridge and continue until they circle back towards the apartments at the Town of Kansas City Observation Deck.

WHEELCHAIR PARTICIPANTS

On May 5, 2019 wheelchair participants and runners start side by side at this track. The only requirement: wheelchair participants have to start in everyday wheelchairs.

REFRESHMENT STATION AND LOCAL SET UP

There won't be any refreshment stations along the track - so make sure to bring your own drinks and snacks if needed.

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. When you are registered the App will start automatically on the event day.

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.

Please make sure to have a fully charged phone on race day.
