About the App Run:
No matter where you are on May 7, 2017, you can hit the road simultaneously with tens of thousands of runners worldwide to help find a cure for spinal cord injury, thanks to the Wings for Life World Run App. The 2017 edition of the App offers participants more options than ever, and this year, when you use it your name will appear on the Global Result List.
A unique aspect of the Wings for Life World Run is its moving finish line: the Catcher Car. At event locations in cities across six continents, a Catcher Car gives runners a head start on a pre-determined course, then begins a slow pursuit. Once a runner is caught, his or her race is finished. Using the Wings for Life World Run App on your phone enables you to run anywhere with a Virtual Catcher Car.
