Palm trees and sunny weather
The 6th edition of the Wings for Life World Run returns to Sunrise, FL May 5th, 2019. As the only Flagship race in North America, we are excited to welcome back the running community as well as fun runners, charity minded people and of course YOU!
This run will take place among palm tree-lined streets in the scenic South Florida community of Sunrise. Runners can expect moderate temperatures and flat terrain leading through suburban landscapes. The Sunrise race will begin at 7:00 a.m. Eastern Time at the BB&T Center and wind through the beautiful city of Sunrise before making a northwesterly turn along U.S. 27, which leads runners northwest into the Florida Everglades.

The Wings for Life World Run is a truly unique and global race for runners, walkers and wheelchair participants. It starts on May 5th, 2019 at exactly 7:00 AM ET and only ends when the last runner worldwide has been caught by the so-called “Catcher Car”. Thirty minutes after the official race start, at 7:30 AM, the Catcher Cars will start chasing the runners: for all those who get caught by the Catcher Car, the race is over.
Step up to the challenge, nominate your friends, invite your family and run together for those who can’t. Wherever you are, 100% of all entry fees for the Wings for Life World Run go directly to the Wings for Life foundation – a not-for-profit foundation with a single mission: finding a cure for spinal cord injury by funding life-changing research projects and clinical trials around the globe.
The official Sunrise start time is 7:00 AM ET on May 5th, 2019.
