Wings For Life: We Ran For Those Who Can’t

Yesterday, in Munich, Bratislava, Zadar, Dubai, Dublin and 30 other cities around the world, more than 101,000 runners laced up to run for those who can’t.

The whole world united in one race, the Wings for Life World Run, and with one common goal: finding a cure for spinal cord injury.

We obviously were up for running for a good cause and sent a team to the starting line in Austria, home of both the Wings for Life Foundation and Runtastic. Our team of runners ran anywhere from 8 km all the way to 27 km before they were caught by the Catcher Car – and we’re more than happy to contribute to finding a cure for spinal cord injury by donating our fees.

The atmosphere during the race reflected the charitable motto at every moment. We ran every single kilometer with enthusiasm and a smile on our faces.

All in all, it was a great & successful event! We can’t wait to run again next year. Are you in, too?!

By the way, the Catcher Car chased runner Ketema from Ethiopia for an incredible 79.9 kilometers. The winner from last year’s Wings for Life Run was able to beat his own record of 78.57 km. Wow!
