Wings For Life World Run

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 ninth year, on May 8, 2022 Wings for Life World Run participants in United States can also run together in Atlanta. 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 07:00. 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. This will be a paved trail run along Atlanta's Westside Trail. The event will begin at the West End near Monday Night Garage and will allow individuals to run along the trail with limited street crossings. The Westside Trail is paved and can host wheelchairs. Participants can modify the loop dependent on their anticipated distance. Join us at Monday Night Garage for a complimentary beer when you finish your run.
