The Wings for Life World Run is an innovative and amazing event where thousands of runners from around the world come together to raise funds for spinal cord research. It’s an innovative race where, in locations around the globe, racers start off and are followed by a chasing car, eliminating them as they go.
Over the weekend, a host of Irish athletes like Dublin's Bernard Brogan, Galway's Joe Canning and Siobhan Fleming of the Irish women's rugby team all took part, along with a number of ultramarathon runners, as well as people who just wanted to support the cause.
In Ireland alone there were 600 participants, while all over the globe, 35,000 people in 32 countries across 13 time zones took part in the race. Among those already mentioned were JJ Hanrahan, fresh from Munster's victory over Edinburgh on Saturday evening, as well as four time All-Ireland medal winner with Kerry Seamus Moynihan, Paddy McKenna & Mark McCabe of 2FM and model Alison Canavan.
With Red Bull taking care of the organisational costs, the race fee goes directly to the charities involved, so check out the footage to see who were the last man and woman standing here in Ireland, as well as who the global winner was.
