TICO, the official Red Bull distributor for BVI, will send the top male and female BVI resident finishers of this year´s KPMG Tortola Torture to compete in the Wings for Life World Run (WFLWR) in Sunrise, Florida on May 5, 2019.

The WFLWR is a global charity event which takes place in 222 cities and over 50 countries. Everybody starts at exactly the same moment – 11am UTC – whether it’s day or night, bright sun or pouring rain and the finish line chases the runners.

A half hour after the race starts, a moving finish line, the “Catcher Car” chases runners along the course, gradually getting faster until each one is caught. The first runners passed after a few kilometers are the first to celebrate their accomplishments, while the last man and woman to be caught are declared Global Champions with 92.14 km the current record!

100% of all entry fees and all donations raised through fundraising campaigns go directly to life-changing spinal cord research projects and clinical trials at renowned universities and institutes worldwide. The nonprofit Wings for Life Spinal Cord Research Foundation is a driving force behind the mission, and Red Bull covers the foundation’s administrative costs in full as well as costs for the Wings for Life World Run.
