Now in its sixth year, Wings for Life World Run participants in the United Kingdom can also run together in Motherwell. Meet up with your friends, download the Wings for Life World Run App and join all the other people running until the virtual Catcher Car catches you of course. The race starts at exactly 12:00. The virtual Catcher Car takes off 30 minutes after the start at 14 km/h and steadily increases its speed until the last athletes have been caught. 100% of all donations and the entry fees go directly into spinal cord research projects.


The race will be held near New College Lanarkshire (Motherwell Campus) and will be held on an asphalt cycle path where wheelchair users will also be able to compete. There will be volunteers at the crossings to ensure the safety of the runners. The route has a 5-kilometre loop and is flat with slight corrugations.


Wheelchair participants and runners start side by side at this track. The only requirement: wheelchair participants have to start in everyday wheelchairs.


Yes, this track has a refreshment station! You will find the following on site: Water, tea, fruit, sweets, etc.
