Running for those who can’t at The Wings For Life World Run - here’s how it works. Will you beat last year’s records?

On May 3, thousands of runners across the world will all set off at the same time. They won’t only be competing against each other: they’ll be running for those who can’t run themselves. The Wings For Life World Run is the largest global charity event dedicated to spinal research. To take part, visit wingsforlifeworldrun.com

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS
