What is the Wings for Life World Run?

The Wings for Life World Run is a truly unique and global race for both runners and wheelchair participants. Instead of a finish line, competitors race side by side to keep ahead of the Virtual Catcher Car. Now in its eleventh year, on 5. května 2024 Wings for Life World Run participants in Germany can also run together in Gelnhausen. Meet up with your friends, download the Wings for Life World Run App and join all the other people running until the Virtual Catcher Car catches you of course. The race starts at exactly 13:00:00. The Virtual Catcher Car takes off 30 minutes after the start at 14 km/h and steadily increases its speed until the last athletes have been caught. 100% of all donations and the entry fees go directly into spinal cord research projects.


The start is at Paradieschen. From there, the route follows tarmac cycle paths and paved country lanes via Höchst to the refreshment point in the Kinzigaue. We cross the Kinzig at Haitz and run through the Kinzig valley to Gelnhausen. There, a small loop leads us past the swimming pool back towards the Kinzigaue. Once there, the return route deviates from the outward route to form another loop at Höchst. This creates an approx. 5 km long loop between Höchst and Gelnhausen, which can also be run several times. However, it is also possible to run the loop at Höchst on the outward journey to shorten the 10km route to around 6km. From Höchst, as on the outward journey, the route then leads back to Paradieschen, where participants can enjoy refreshments after their run.

Wheelchair participants

On 5. května 2024 wheelchair participants and runners start side by side at this track. The only requirement: wheelchair participants have to start in everyday wheelchairs.
