Registration is now open for the eighth edition of the unique global running event, Wings for Life World Run.
The Wings for Life World Run raises funds for the not-for-profit spinal cord research foundation and offers participants the opportunity to run with people all over the globe with the same start time worldwide. This year's event takes place on Sunday, May 9 and is open to everyone, regardless of whether you are a professional athlete, a fun runner, or a total beginner.
Red Bull Athlete and Olympian Thomas Barr, who will be supporting the Irish running community for this year’s run said that "at a time when we are all missing that crucial sense of community, joining a run like this is such an uplifting and motivational thing to do. I would encourage runners of all levels to get involved. It can be as easy or as challenging as you make it, and you are helping to support this incredible cause that is Wings for Life."
First organised in 2014, the Wings For Life World Run is a great way to run together for those that can't. Since then, 700,000 people from 195 nations have run, walked and rolled seven million kilometres, raising €30 million for the Wings for Life foundation.
This year, it all kicks off at 12pm Irish time on Sunday, May 9 and you can register via this link.
