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 mei 2024 Wings for Life World Run participants in Germany can also run together in Büdingen. 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.
Welcome to the historic town of Büdingen. The 4.5 km loop starts in front of the „Städtische Kindergarten“ (Über der Seeme 30) and leads over flat asphalt and gravel paths along the Seemen- and Wolfsbach. Ideal conditions to outrun the catcher car for a while. We meet at 12:30 for a social warm-up. Note on how to get there: There are no parking spaces in the start area or along the running track. We therefore recommend the “Parkhaus Büdingen” (Über der Seeme 3), which is only 300m away from the start.
Unfortunately this track has sections which will be difficult for wheelchair users. Please check out other App Run Events close to you or start as an individual participant wherever you want.
Refreshment station and local set up
Yes, this track has a refreshment station! You will find the following on site: The catering station is located in the starting area and can be approached on every lap. We serve water and isotonic beverages. Own catering can be deposited.
