Wings for Life World Run - App Run Saalbach
WITH FABIO WIBMER & MANUEL FELLER
WHAT IS THE WINGS FOR LIFE WORLD RUN
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 it’s sixth year, on May 5, 2019 Wings for Life World Run participants in Austria can also run together in Saalbach. 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 13:00. The virtual Catcher Car takes off 30 minutes after the start at 15km/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.
The track leads from the “Heimathaus” Saalbach, a rustic and very beautiful place, to Hinterglemm on the asphalted promenade. In Hinterglemm will be a refreshment station and also the turnaround back to Saalbach. The loop is slightly more than 4 km long.
On May 5, 2019 wheelchair participants and runners start side by side at this track. The only requirement: wheelchair participants have to start in everyday wheelchairs.
