On May 4th 2014, Sunday, running enthusiasts from around the world will be running simultaneously to support for research to find a cure for spinal cord injury.
In this inaugural Wings for Life World Run, almost 40 races will be taking place simultaneously in six continents. Whats unique about the race is that there is no specific distance to cover and no static finish line. All runners will start at the same time globally (10 AM UTC) and will start running on similar courses all over the world. 30 mins after the start a “catcher car” will start on course in pursuit of the runners. This car is the moving finish line..literally. Once the car catches a runner, his/her race is over. The final male and female to be caught world-wide will be the Wings for Life World Run Champions!
In India, the Wings for Life World Run will take place in Sonipat, Haryana, 1530 local time. The race will start from Rai Sports Complex and is expected to end at Karnal. The run is being organized under the Aegis of Government of Haryana and the Haryana Olympics Association.
