The Wings for Life World Run will take place on May 4, 2014 simultaneously in 37 locations worldwide including Sunrise, FL; Denver, CO; and Santa Clarita, CA. Runners around the world will start together at 10:00 AM UTC (6 AM ET/4 AM MT/3 AM PT). This global race utilizes a brand new race format where runners are pursued by the finish line. Once a runner is overtaken by the finish line attached to a “catcher car,” his/her race is complete and results will be shown by distance rather than time. This new format ensures that everyone from novice runners to professional ultrarunners is welcome to participate. Most importantly, 100% of entry fees go directly to spinal cord injury research.
