WINGS FOR LIFE WORLD RUN
MAY 7th, 2017
Thanks for visiting NEFF.run, the athlete page of Calum Neff. You have reached my special landing page for the Wings for Life World Run on May 7th, 2017 taking place simultaneously in 25 locations across the world. 100% of the registration and donations go to spinal cord injury research, an important and personal cause for me having a couple friends that have experienced paralyzing spinal cord injuries.
In 2014 at the inaugural race I was the last man running of all five North American races, completing over 36mi/58km in 4 hours through Sothern California's hills before I was eliminated by the catcher car in a global game of chase. In 2015, competing in the amazing country of Turkey, I improved to 39.95mi/64.3km for an extra 19 minutes despite struggling late in the race with frustrating heat cramps. In 2016 in my home country of Canada I was in hot pursuit of the leader around mile 40, well ahead of the catcher car, but was directed off course and the catcher car never did find me leaving unfinished business the with WFL World Run!
In 2017 the race is back for a 4th time and plan to go after the 50 mile / 80 km mark running the everglades of Sunrise, Florida. Below you can find information on the race and how you can join me from anywhere in the world. Also links to donate to the WFL foundation via my athlete profile and personal fundraising campaign "Spread Your Wings and Run" - why I am running & the reason this is a special race for me. Also I will be updating information on real-time tracking and watching live on race day.
Be sure to follow @calneff on social media for frequent updates while I travel.
Thank you and good luck on Sunday May 7th!
