35 RACES. 6 CONTINENTS. 1 START. A MOVING FINISH LINE. THE WINGS FOR LIFE WORLD RUN RETURNS ON MAY 3, 2015

The only worldwide game of chase is back with three North American runs confirmed; 100% of registration fees dedicated to research to cure spinal cord injury

In a remarkable global race with 35 simultaneous starts and no finish line, the world will run again on May 3, 2015. In races across six continents, runners will attempt to stay ahead of pursuing ‘catcher cars’ driven to chase and overpass them. Produced by Red Bull in partnership with the Wings for Life Foundation, this innovative worldwide race with a “moving finish line” was first held in May 2014 to benefit spinal cord injury research and more than $4.1 million was raised in its inaugural year.

To kick off the return of the Wings for Life World Run to Sunrise, Fla., Brooke Thabit completed a dream of hers by skydiving with the Red Bull Air Force team at the BB&T Center, the official start location of the Florida race. Wings for Life World Run ambassador Brooke Thabit is hoping for a medical breakthrough in spinal cord injuries. This former surfer and outdoor enthusiast has been physically and mentally preparing for the day when she will walk again after a neck injury left her mostly paralyzed and wheelchair bound.

In North America next year on May 3, 2015, races will start in the early morning at three locations: Santa Clarita, Calif. at 4 am PST; Sunrise, Fla. and Niagara Falls, Ontario at 7 am EST. Worldwide, there are six new tracks confirmed in the world’s only global race with a synchronized starting line - in Japan, Russia, United Arab Emirates, Denmark, Canada, and a second track in Germany.
