About this app

Woohoo, it’s that time of year again when you register to run for those who can’t 🙏

161,892 participants in 165 countries took part in the 2022 Wings for Life World Run, but we know 2023 can be even BIGGER. Enter: you.

We're a bit different to other races, we don’t use a finish line for starters. Instead, our Catcher Car chases you. Sounds fun, right? And whether you’re running or rolling (in a wheelchair), you choose your own distance. The best bit: 100% of your entry fee goes directly to the Wings for Life foundation to help fund spinal cord research. Win-win.

There's more; wherever you are, you’ll be joining tens of thousands of runners all over the world, all racing at the same time. You can take part with friends, either in real life or virtually, or go it alone. Whatever your vibe, register now directly on our app.

Actually, our app has a bunch of great features:

- Virtual Catcher Car
- Goal calculator and Preparation Run Mode
- GPS tracking
- Sharing functions for your mates
- We also speak 15 languages

Such a great goal and such an awful app. After receiving all the possible permissions (far beyond the app could possibly need) it still forces me to go to "battery optimization screen". And it is impossible to skip (even if I'm theoretically okay with the risk of loosing some of the data because of failing to choose correct settings and permissions. Moreover, the app link takes me to the wrong settings screen (not the one where required permissions could possibly be adjusted). Just can't use app

I didn't put 5 stars only because of the help this cause brings to others, but because it's genuinely a good app. Every km you get an update in the language you chose, of how you're doing. The commentator is the voice of a known person from the country you chose. It's entertaining to hear the comments together with the music you choose

I love the idea and the cause and was really pumped for my run. Let's just say, I was disappointed. First, I wasn't able to press start. It took 20 min of me trying everything, including restarting my phone, for it to finally work. I future, just give people their 30 min headstart once they press start. But only having a 10 min headstart wasn't the end of it, the app crashed after me running only 2.4 km and didn't document the rest of my run. I had a nice run, it just wasn't for wings for life.
