RaceRunning is a new sport in England being developed by Cerebral Palsy Sport. It is for children, young people and adults who cannot functionally run and rely on sports aids for mobility and balance.
RaceRunning is a three wheeled frame where the athlete is supported by a saddle and body plate. The athlete propels against the frame using their feet, and steers using the mobility within their hands and/or arms.
People with physical disabilities in other countries already participate in RaceRunning – including Scotland.
In 2014, Cerebral Palsy was successful in securing Sport England Get Equipped funding to purchase a number of RaceRunning bikes and to run a series of RaceRunning Taster Days.
These taster days have led on to a number of children taking up RaceRunning regularly and taking part in competitions.
