CP Sport announce two RaceRunning taster sessions in the South East

We are pleased to announce two RaceRunning taster sessions coming up in April 2017 in the South East of England.

RaceRunning is a still quite a new sport in England and is 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 on 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.
