Abstract
Cilj je kroz ulogu menadžera sportskih događanja i općenito menadžmenta u sportu opisati karakteristike i specifičnosti utrke Wings for Life World Run koja je dio međunarodne neprofitne zaklade Wings for Life koja se bavi istraživanjem i misijom pronalaska lijeka za ozljede leđne moždine. Diljem svijeta se financiraju zdravstvena i klinička istraživanja, a globalna utrka humanitarnog karaktera veliki je dio tog uspjeha. Kao globalni sportski događaj, s organizacijskog i upravljačkog stajališta utrka je po mnogočemu vrlo zahtjevna i specifična jer je jedina na svijetu u kojoj svi sudionici (profesionalni trkači i rekreativci) startaju u isto vrijeme iz 34 zemlje svijeta i na 6 kontinenata.
