This event won’t be the downhill skating race, Crashed Ice, the energy drink company did a few years ago in winter.
This new event is called “The Wings for Life”. It is a global event and Niagara Falls will be the only site in Canada where the race will be held. No date has yet been set but it will occur during the warmer months of the year.
Here’s how it works. Participants will attempt to stay ahead of pursuing, “catcher cars”. The event debuted last year and raised just over $4 million for spinal cord injury research.
No route has yet been set for the race but it will start at Table Rock beside the Canadian Horseshoe Falls in Niagara Falls Canada.
The race is open to all runners from the novice to the marathoners.
