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!”
