Frame Running Competitions

Frame Running Competition Pathways

There is a number of competition opportunities for Frame Runners to take part in competitive events. Events range from 40m to 3000m. Competitors are classified based on their disability and race against other competitors in their class.

Cerebral Palsy Sport’s Athletics Series provides a season long series of events in which Frame Running is included. More details of the series can be found here. Athletes are requested to check which events have electronic timing and photo finish provided.

There is is also a number of other competitions that Frame Runners are able to compete in. Each year Cerebral Palsy Sport will promote these opportunities with our partners and British Athletics.
