On Sunday 3 May at 9pm local time, global race with a difference, Wings for Life World Run will kick off next to the Fleet Steps at Sydney’s iconic Macquarie’s Chair. There is no finish line; instead runners and wheelchair competitors from beginners to pros race to keep ahead of a ‘Catcher Car’ to raise money for spinal cord injury.
Everyone around the world starts at the same time, whether it’s 9pm in Australia or 4am in North America. Tickets are on sale now for $15 with 100% of entry fees and donations going straight into research for spinal cord injuries.
Locals in Sydney can participate in the Organised App Run, using the Wings for Life app to keep ahead of a virtual catcher car that is synced up directly with real catcher cars around the world. Via the Wings for Life app, you can even run around the block with mates.
