On Sunday 9 May 2021, the eighth edition of the global charity run, Wings for Life World Run, was confirmed with registration for the UK event opened today HERE.

The 2021 event in the UK will be a Wings for Life World Run App Run with a virtual Catcher Car, allowing people all over the country to take part in a safe and convenient way. The Wings for Life World Run App Run allows each participant to run anywhere and be accompanied by an exciting audio experience as the virtual Catcher Car slowly speeds up to them and finishes their race. The app can be downloaded for free from the App Store or Google Play Store ahead of the event.

More than 700,000 participants from 195 countries have participated in the Wings for Life World Run since 2014, completing 7 million kilometres and raising almost EUR 30,000,000 for Wings for Life through entry fees and donations.  100 per cent of all Wings for Life World Run entry fees are used for spinal cord research.

Former Olympic medalist and Wings for Life World Run Sports Director Colin Jackson said “I’m delighted the Wings for Life World Run will return in 2021. We have been developing the Wings for Life World Run App for the past five years so a virtual run isn’t new territory at all and will allow each participant to have a premium experience.”

“It doesn’t matter if a participant plans to go 1 kilometre, 5 kilometers, a half marathon, marathon or even further; the special format allows everybody to run their own race and achieve something amazing.”

CEO of Wings for Life Foundation, Anita Gerhardter said, “The support we receive is just phenomenal. The Wings for Life World Run is an important event for our foundation. In these times of isolation, we’re delighted to unite people all around the world again in 2021 to run together for a good cause.”
