Red Bull’s Wings For Life charity are offering the chance to compete along side Mark Webber and other stars as part of the foundation’s World Run, whilst the top 50 fund raisers will receive a tour of Red Bull’s Milton Keynes factory.

The World Run, which takes place on May 4th, will see thousands of runners compete concurrently in thirty-five different locations around the world, all starting at 11am GMT, to raise funding for the spinal cord injury charity.

The UK host will be Silverstone, where along with Webber, International rugby players George North and Thom Evans will do their best to evade the World Run catcher car. The catcher car moves at a gradually accelerating pace, passing runners one be one until the fastest man and woman are left.

The factory tour will be undertaken by the 50 competitors that raise the most money for Wings of Life, where they will be able to see the design, production and engineering facilities of Red Bull’s 2014 RB10.

“I love the concept behind the Wings for Life World Run. It’s incredible that you can compete against your friends in countries all over the world at the very same time,” said Sebastian Vettel. “Silverstone is the perfect location for the UK stop – an iconic racing track which will please runners but also Formula One fans. So swap your tyres for trainers, support Wings for Life and get training for this special global event!”

To enter simply visit www.wingsforlifeworldrun.com and sign up to the race nearest to you. The entry fee of £40 is donated wholly to Wings for life.

    I’m only racing if I have clear number one status.

    1. jack says:

      LOL!!! You’ll only ever be not bad for a number 2, Andrew!

    2. Random 79 says:

      Sounds fair, but just to be sure I tied Mark’s shoelaces into diabolical knots while he wasn’t looking – should take him days to undo ;)

      1. Gaz Boy says:

        Knowing Mark’s luck, then the soles of his shoes would either combust, shred apart suddenly or need replacing after a few hundred yards!
        Let’s hope his shoes are not those new V6 turbo Renault manufactured ones either!

      2. Luke says:

        It’s the Pirelli rubber on his soles he has to worry about!

      3. Pat M says:

        Well that sucks, one of my shoes failed and I was hoping the team would switch Mark’s shoes to my feet :)

    3. Henry says:

      Chances are, Mark will bogged down with clutch issues off the line and get passed by the catcher car into the first corner…

    4. Tyemz says:

      Multi 21 Mark, multi 21. Wings for life! I like the sound of that.

  2. luqa says:

    Kudos to Mark, Seb and RedBull for supporting such a worthwhile cause!

    1. Lew says:

      Quite so!

  3. jack says:

    Luv all this! Gold! C’mon james, jump in! Give us something… Good God, man!

    This one is so good, it go on forever!

    We could see the comments record absoulutely smashed with this little gem. Firestarter…

    1. jack says:

      The reocrd for the least amount of comments it would seem… disappointment, bloggers?!? What a fizzer!!!

  4. Brace says:

    If it’s a standing start, I’m as good as winner already! :)

  5. Marcelo Leal says:

    Sure Vettel will do…
