Yes, we love to go out, explore the world, see new things and take our bikes or other sport gear to the best places in the world. And that’s good.
Now I want to get your attention for people who can’t.
Wings for Life World Run takes off globally in 100 days
The world’s most spectacular running race ever will take place in exactly 100 days, on May 4th 2014, when thousands of runners will set off on a unique race staged simultaneously on up to 37 different courses in 35 different countries on 6 continents. The Wings for Life World Run aims to raise funds for spinal cord research and will start precisely at 10am UTC at the exact same time in locations across the globe - meaning that runners in some countries will be running from dawn to dusk while others will be racing from dusk to dawn.
800 runners form the Wings For Life World Run logo
Open to participants of all levels, shapes, sizes, abilities and ages, the outstanding feature of the first such global sporting event is that the moving finish line will be chasing the racers from behind instead of the racers running towards a set finish line. Exactly 30 minutes after the runners set off at some of the most spectacular locations around the world, official Catcher Cars will set off behind the packs in pursuit of the runners. When a Catcher Car passes a runner, their race is over. The last man and last woman running will be declared the winners.
