Woohoo, it’s that time of year again when you register to run for those who can’t.
184,236 participants in 195 countries took part in the 2021 Wings for Life World Run, but we know 2022 can be even BIGGER. Enter: you.
We're a bit different to other races, we don’t use a finish line for starters. Instead, our Catcher Car chases you. Sounds fun, right? And whether you’re running or rolling (in a wheelchair), you choose your own distance. The best bit: 100% of your entry fee goes directly to the Wings for Life foundation to help fund spinal cord research. Win-win.
There's more; wherever you are, you’ll be joining tens of thousands of runners all over the world, all racing at the same time. You can take part with friends, either in real life or virtually, or go it alone. Whatever your vibe, register now directly on our app.
Actually, our shiny new app has a bunch of great features:
- Virtual Catcher Car
- Goal calculator and Preparation Run Mode (incl. simplified Audio Experience)
- GPS tracking
- Sharing functions for your mates
- We also speak 14 languages
On May 7, we run for those who can't at the same time all over the world. Please download the latest app version as it includes final optimizations and bug fixes. Report any feedback to https://www.wingsforlifeworldrun.com/help.
Ratings and Reviews
The most fun!
The run started at 4am my time, on a Sunday morning. Not going to lie I was mostly cursing myself while getting ready. But the narrator and the ‘catcher car’ (she was so funny!) absolutely kept me motivated. I even found myself sprinting UPHILL at the end to just get a little farther. I’m an average runner at best but that was probably the most fun I’ve had at a race. Will definitely sign up again next year!
Love the “live” encouragement. Only thing to improve would be to have the catcher car give more “warnings” as they approach. This was done last year (2020) but I didn’t hear the catcher car until it was on me this year. Still all for an extremely important cause!
Fun race app works well
I can’t believe they got Catherine O’Hare to be in the catcher car! It could have only been better if she spoke in her Moera voice the whole time.
Great cause and super cool format. I’m very happy to have been a part of it.
