Wings for Life World Run


Wings for Life World Run is a charity run WUAXC are organising in partnership with Red Bull, taking place on campus. Wings for Life is charity that supports cutting-edge research worldwide with a goal to find a cure for spinal cord injury.

"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 eleventh year, on May 5, 2024 Wings for Life World Run participants in United Kingdom can also run together in Coventry. 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 of course. The race starts at exactly 12:00:00 PM. 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.
