Race Information

This event is made up of multiple simultaneous virtual road running races that happen all over the world that start at the exact same time. 

Runners are chased by a pace car (catch car), once the car passes a runner their race is finished. The last male and female runners left running in each location are the local champions, the last male and female runner left running on Earth get the esteemed title of global champ (and all the fortune and glory that come with it).

Woah... I have to outrun a car!? That sounds intense

Ya, it is. However, the car doesn't start chasing you down until 30 minutes after the race start, meaning that runners of all abilities can come out and see how far they can make it.

This event is being run as an organized app run, meaning that you 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 virtual Catcher Car takes off 30 minutes after the start at 14km/h and steadily increases its speed until the last athletes have been caught. 

The Wings For Life World Run is a unique concept in racing produced by Red Bull and held in partnership with the Wings For Life Foundation (a not for profit foundation dedicated to spinal cord research). 100% of all donations and the entry fees of these events go directly into spinal cord research projects.
