34 different locations and the whole World will be running with one mission only “to cure spinal cord injuries”.
Formula 1 stars, presidents and even princes attend this race as can everybody else who wants to.
In a short period like only two years the running event took place in more than 40 different locations with 136 thousand and 677 runners which lead to 7 Million Euro donation for the spinal cord injuries cure research.
Wings for Life World Run CEO Anita Gerhardter has developed a catching car which will announce the finish time for the runners. Whenever the car catches you, you are out of the race.
All data, pictures and stories about the runners are collected in the Global Race Control Room and thanks to the Social Media, the interest is huge.
This year, the race will take place on the 8th of May 2016 and one of the locations will be İzmir, Turkey. Before, it was organized in Alanya.
UTC 11.00 (14.00 Turkish Local Time) runners will start from the Alsancak Gündogdu Square.
Everybody, both the runners in Wheel chairs and regular runners will be together until the car catches them.
If you are far from any location but do want to contribute no matter how, you can do your Selfie Run by yourself at the same time when the whole World runs.
