The Wings for Life global race is back in Saudi Arabia for its 10th edition. On Sunday, May 7, the Jeddah Corniche Circuit will host the Saudi leg of the race, which is expected to draw more than 280,000 participants from around the world. The event aims to fund research to find a cure for spinal cord injuries, and 100% of the entry fees go towards this humanitarian cause.
In partnership with Red Bull Mobile, the Saudi Motorsports Company, and the Jeddah Corniche Circuit, the race will be held simultaneously in major cities across 195 countries. What sets this race apart is its unique format: all participants, regardless of whether they’re runners or wheelchair users, race together. There is no physical finish line; instead, a Catcher Car starts 30 minutes after the race begins and overtakes participants individually. The race ends when the Catcher Car reaches each participant, ensuring everyone finishes.
