Run for those who can’t anymore on Sunday May 9, 2021 in the Wings for Life World Run
Posted On March 22, 2021
For several years, Red Bull has been organizing the Wings for Life World Run. An international online race to support research into healing spinal cord injuries. Thanks to an app, run alongside thousands of other people around the world. The opportunity to take your shoes out of the closet and get some fresh air, all for a good cause. The international dimension makes the race exciting. You will be running alongside Japanese, Americans or even Brazilians at the same time!
What makes the Wings for Life World Run so unique? There is no physical finish line to cross, but an app on your smartphone with a virtual finish line that chases you to catch up with you.
You start wherever you want at exactly the same time as other participants around the world. In Belgium, it’s at 1:00 p.m., which means runners in Tokyo, for example, start their race at 8:00 p.m. 30 minutes after the virtual tee shot, the virtual finish line begins its pursuit. As soon as you are caught up, your race ends. The big winner of the Wings for Life World Run is the runner who is the very last (in the world!) To continue his race.
” Running for those who can’t Is the motto of the Wings for Life Global Race for a reason. Wings for Life World Run funds raised around the world will go entirely to the Wings for Life Foundation, which is researching the cure for spinal cord injury – a disease that our compatriot Marc Herremans also suffers from. He is the international sports director of the Wings for Life World Run.
” Research remains extremely important and produces results. And that’s exactly what we want to highlight with this event. The fact that the funds are entirely dedicated to the research of the Wings for Life Foundation is unique. And this is also the reason for the success of the Wings for Life World Run. “- Marc Herremans
