Red Bull Athletes From Kuwait Joins Wings for Life World Run

Three Athletes pausing in front of Kuwait Towers

On May 4, three Red Bull Athletes from Kuwait (Mohamed Jaffar, Mohamed Al Attar and Mansour Al Safran) will join tens of thousands of runners around the world in a simultaneous global race for charity in Georgia.

Runners of all ages and abilities from 136 nations will take part in the first-ever Wings for Life World Run. The top prize will be an extraordinary month-long trip around the world for the best male and female runners.

The remarkable feature of the first global sporting event of its kind is that a moving finish line will be chasing the runners from behind instead of the runners dashing towards a fixed finish line. It will start at precisely 10am UTC and will end hours later when the last male and female runner is caught by one of the Catcher Cars.

Those amazing athletes will be crowned global winners of the first Wings for Life World Run. They will win an unforgettable highlight-filled journey that features stops in Salzburg, Istanbul, Cape Town, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Sydney, Fiji, Los Angeles and Rio de Janeiro. The red carpets will be rolled out for the winners at all these stops with priceless experiences ranging from aerobatic flights to meetings with sporting and business legends.

The aim of this truly global happening is to raise funds for spinal cord research. Although the run is open to participants 18 years or older of all levels, shapes, sizes and abilities there are several favorites to win the race like Takahiro Sunada, a Japanese Ultramarathon runner who holds the world record for 100 kilometers (6:13:33) as well as three-time Ultramarathon world champion Giorgio Calcaterra of Italy. Sunada will be running in the race in Austria while Calcaterra will be running in Italy. And they will not be the only ones battling for a win.

  1. There are also good places in Kuwait that is not known to people like the one that they are building in Al Khiran which I guess already in Phase 4. That is under La’ala Al Kuwait Real Estate Co. I know the owner of this firm is Mr. Fawaz Al Marzouq. We have to be greatful of this kind of evolution in our construction industry. They were also featured in Discovery Channel’s Building the Impossible.

    Here is the website if you like to watch the discovery episode:
