Running Rainbirds at the Wings For Life World Run

Wings For Life Running Rainbirds

This coming Sunday we’ve a team of 8 Running Rainbirds taking part in the Wings for Life World Run in Melbourne. They’ll be joining over 100,000 participants in 34 locations worldwide for the start of the Wings for Life World Run at precisely the same time – that’s dawn in North America, the middle of the day in Europe, and at night here in Australia. The Wings for Life World Run is a global running and wheelchair race starting 11 am UTC across the globe on May 8, 2016 and finishing when the last person is caught by the Catcher Car. The Melbourne start time is 21:00 making for an exciting night-time running experience.

100% of the Wings for Life World Run entry fees and runner donations go straight to the Wings for Life, a non-profit foundation that funds research into finding a cure for spinal cord injury.

Our Running Rainbirds include Neil, Emily, Pamela, Brett, Nicole P, John, Tanya, and Nicole T. The team is going to run in the elements for those that can’t – rain, hail or shine. Proving that the elements shouldn’t get in the way of living life and having fun. They believe that nothing makes them feel more alive than the freedom to explore, experience and challenge themselves.

Each Running Rainbird will have their Rainbird StowAway Jacket with them for pre and post race, and maybe even during if the weather requires it – it is Melbourne after-all!
