Event's details

At this very moment, as your eyes scan these words, a life is changing irrevocably due to a spinal cord injury, leaving someone paralyzed, bereft of sensation, and reliant on others. In the face of this, Wings for Life, a dedicated charity, champions groundbreaking research in pursuit of a cure.

The Wings for Life World Run is a unique event where participants worldwide synchronize their start at 11:00 am UTC, be they seasoned pros, casual joggers, or those in wheelchairs. The twist? A 'Catcher Car' sets off 30 minutes later, marking a roving finish line that ends the race once it overtakes you. Every dirham of the entry fees and donations fuel research efforts.

The World Run shatters conventions. Runners from London to Los Angeles toe the same global start line at disparate local times, united in a collective stride for science. Whether you aim to trot 5 km or surge past 60 km, it's the distance that counts, not speed. Curious about your target pace? A Goal Calculator is at your service. This year, the event unfolds at Expo City on May 5th, at 3:00 PM, beckoning all to make strides towards a world without paralysis from spinal cord injuries.

Spectators are free to watch and enter the venue.
