What remains the same in 2015?

The good cause
100 percent of all entry and sponsor fees go to life-changing research projects aimed at healing the injured spinal cord.

The unique race format
Thirty minutes after the athletes start, the catcher car will begin to follow them. Driving slowly first but increasing its speed at given periods in time, the catcher car is the moving finish line. Once a participant is overtaken, his or her race is over.

All the fun
May 3rd will be again a day full of emotions. We will see happiness, elation, exhaustion, tension and pride on so many faces.  

What’s new for 2015?

No separate wheelchair races
Instead, wheelchair participants and runners will all start their race side by side. Please find more information in this article.

Start time change
The start time will shift from 10 to 11 a.m. UTC.

4 new host countries
Denmark, Japan, Russia and the United Arab Emirates will also host the Wings for Life World Run. A full list of all locations is available at
