Wings for Life

RiverWalk Plaza

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 sixth year, Wings for Life World Run participants in Canada can also run together in Calgary on May 5, 2019.

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. The race starts at exactly 5:00AM. 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.
