‘CATCHER CARS’ IN GLOBAL CHASE RACE READY TO PURSUE RUNNERS
AS WINGS FOR LIFE WORLD RUN RETURNS TO SUNRISE
Ground breaking global charity run for spinal cord injury research looks to surpass participation, distance and contribution records
Sunrise, Fla. (November 10, 2015) – The chase is on when the world’s only global race with a synchronized starting line – and no traditional finish line – returns on May 8, 2016.
Thousands of runners of all abilities will again converge in Sunrise, Fla. at the BB&T Center in the remarkable global run. Runners set off at 7 AM Eastern Time in races across six continents in 13 time zones, attempting to stay ahead of pursuing ‘catcher cars’ driven to chase and overpass them. Produced by Red Bull in partnership with the Wings for Life Foundation, this innovative worldwide race with a “moving finish line” was first held in May 2014 to benefit spinal cord injury research with the goal to find a cure.
Because every runner will eventually be caught by the pursuing finish line (the Catcher Car), beginners to dedicated athletes to competitors in everyday wheelchairs are guaranteed to finish the race and make a difference.
