On May 4, 2014 one of the biggest and most unique running events ever staged will take place: the whole world will be the venue for the ‘Wings for Life World Run.’

The race has no fixed distance and every runner around the world will start at precisely the same time. Thousands of runners will set off off at 10pm NZT along routes in up to 40 different locations on six continents in varying light and weather conditions.

This is all in aid of Wings for Life’s mission: to find a cure for spinal cord injury.

There is no traditional static finish line, rather competitors will run in front of an advancing ‘catcher car’, every car governed by the single, global race schedule. Half an hour after the runners start, the catcher car at every race will begin behind them at a set speed. Once a catcher car overtakes a runner their race is over. This will continue until there is one male and one female athlete in the world left running. Only they will be crowned the Wings for Life World Run Champions.

Every year 130,000 more sustain a spinal cord injury, followed by paralysis – the main cause being traffic accidents. The advances in research are largely based on private initiatives. Being a non-profit organisation, Wings for Life relies on support and donations to help fund this research. Wings for Life is set-up to ensure that a guaranteed 100% of all entry fees and donations it receives are used exclusively for promising research projects.

Competitors will not only be part of a truly revolutionary global sporting event, but will join the race to find a cure for spinal cord injury.
