Hawthorn East, Melbourne

Organised by:
College of Sport & Exercise Science Society


On May 8, 2016, over 100,000 participants in 34 locations worldwide will start the Wings for Life World Run at precisely the same time - whether that’s dawn in North America, the middle of the day in Europe, or at night here in Australia. The Melbourne start time is 21:00 making for an exciting night running experience! Your race pack includes a LED LENSER headlamp (RRP$47) and a PUMA technical race t-shirt (RRP$35).

The Catcher Cars take off 30 minutes after the start at 15km/h and steadily increase their speed, precisely synced across the globe, until the last participants have been caught. Set yourself a distance goal with our handy Goal Calculator on our website and see how far you can run to make spinal cord injury curable.

This year, we have an all new flatter and safer course for Melbourne which allows quicker transport back to the race hub where the live broadcast from all 34 locations will be waiting for you!

100% of your entry fee goes to spinal cord research.
