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 its sixth year, on May 5, 2019 Wings for Life World Run participants in South Africa can also run together in Cape Town. 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 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

The Sea Point Promenade stretches the length of Mouille Point and Sea Point. A broad paved sea-side contour path copies the coastline curves with views of the sea and small beaches. The panorama of Table Mountain, Signal Hill and Lions Head make appearances from different angles along the shorefront. This ±7km stretch is flat and popular for strolls, brisk walkers and joggers. Crowd-pleasing before and after work with professionals enjoying outdoor workouts and on weekends with families.

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.
