Are you ready to earn your wings with Black Girls RUN!?? Red Bull is hosting it’s first WINGS FOR LIFE WORLD RUN on Sunday, May 4!
The Wing for Life World Run is an entirely new type of event never before seen or undertaken in either running or any other sporting field. Why? Because it is a truly global adventure, encompassing up to forty locations, in which everyone runs at the very same time all of the world! 100% of the proceeds from the event will go to the Wings For Life Foundation, which funds research into curing spinal cord injury.
The format of the Wings For Life World Run is a first in not only in running but also of all sporting events. Routes will be defined but runners will not be running a set distance, as unlike normal races the finish line is chasing them rather than them running towards it; in short you know where you start, but you do not know your finish. This is how it works: half an hour after the start signal sounds and the first runners leave the start line official catcher cars will simultaneously set off at each course, pursuing the runners. This pace will accelerate at determined intervals to a rigid global schedule. When the catcher car passes a runner their race is over and its time to catch the shuttle back to start area and celebrate.
When: Sunday, May 4; 6 a.m. start
Where: Sunrise, Florida
Registration Fee: $50 (Race deadline is April 20) ****DON’T FORGET TO LIST BLACK GIRLS RUN! AS YOUR TEAM!****
