Red Bull Wings For Life World Run
May 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmUS$23
New runners take note: the Wings For Life World Run is the perfect run for anyone who just wants to try out running. No specified distance, the possibility to run virtually and a great listening experience, all help push you towards a personal best.
Returning to Singapore for its eighth year, the Wings For Life World Run is a truly unique global race that is organised by Red Bull. Taking place on 9 May 2021, the race flags off globally at 7pm (SGT/ GMT +8) and is open to both runners and wheelchair participants.
100% of all entry fees goes to support the Wings For Life Spinal Cord Research Foundation, with the goal to find a cure for spinal cord injuries. Just as in 2020, the Wings For Life World Run will be held exclusively via the App. Even if all participants should run individually for themselves, the sense of of community and the fun factor at this run are unique. You run alone, but you’re still connected to the global field of participants via the App and the integrated listening experience.
How it works
To be part of the run, participants need to register for the race at http://www.wingsforlifeworldrun.com/ or simply download the Wings For Life World Run App (available in iOS/Android) and commence from wherever they please. The run will flag off globally with runners and wheelchair users starting at exactly the same time of 11:00 UTC (19:00 SGT) for a truly synchronised race.
Instead of a finish line, participants must keep ahead of the virtual Catcher Car within the Wings For Life app. The virtual Catcher Car takes off 30 minutes after the start gun and begins its chase of participants, starting at a speed of 15km/h. The Catcher Car increases its speed steadily until all the participants are caught, for a truly competitive and social marathon. It is game over for the competitor once the Catcher Car overtakes them. Once passed by the Catcher Car, participants have successfully completed the run. Everyone is a finisher in the Wings For Life World Run.
After registration, participants can join the Singapore team on the Wings For Life World Run app or via the link here to be part of the Wings for Life World Run Singapore Community.
