. Everyone will be able to create their own race and virtually join hundreds of thousands of runners around the world. The campaign’s goal is to find a cure for spinal cord injuries. All contributions will go to support research in this area.
The Wings For Life World Run is unique in that the participants run from the finish line and not to it.
Half an hour after the start, car finishes leave, which are gradually accelerating. As soon as the car catches up with the runner, the race ends for him. This year, such cars will work virtually: the application will send sound notifications about the dynamics of the virtual car. Each participant will be able to compete for the champion title. All results will fall into a single world ranking.
