On Sunday, May 4, Florianópolis was the Brazilian host for the first edition of Wings for Life World Run. The main and noble purpose of this sporting event is to support the research of spinal cord injuries.  All of the proceeds from the run are put towards research.

This was not your typical charity run. The race was scheduled to start simultaneously at 10am UTC in 34 locations around the world.  It was truly a “global race”.

Each route was 100km, but the race had very different rules.  Basically, the challenge consisted of a dynamic race format where after 30 minutes an official “catcher car” progressed through the circuit following the runners.  If you were passed by the “catcher car” than your race was over. Consequently, the last runner overtaken by the “catcher car” was considered the world winner.
