Wings for Life World Run | Philips sports headphones

Proud partners of Wings for Life World Run, supporting each step towards a cure for spinal cord injury.  


Run wild and free with thousands of others worldwide and all at the same time. Go as far as we can until you hear your Philips GO headphones tell you when the catcher car catches up with you - doing this not just for yourself, but for a good cause, as all of the entrance fee goes to spinal cord research.

See how we run

This is all about running with others in mind. Putting your best foot forward. And letting yourself go. So when the run happens at the same time around the world, it means if a participant in Sweden starts at 13:00, then another runner in Finland would start at 14:00, in Florida at 7:00 and so on.

Beat your PB

It’s not just you personal best run, this is the personal best that you can achieve for others. You see, a virtual car within the app begins its pursuit 30 minutes after you start your race at 14 km per hour, and it steadily increases its speed until the last of the runners have been caught. Once the car catches up with you, it means you’ve finished your race.
