RaceRunning is a new and upcoming World Para Athletics event. It allows people with Cerebral Palsy & similar disabilities to sprint with support. A RaceRunner looks like a tricycle without pedals - participants lean on a chest support and this puts the body into a natural sprinting position. It is ideal for people who have limited hand control, meaning that they would struggle to propel a racing wheelchair, but are still eager to get competitive down on the track! It is a very special and unique sport as you see athletes who are unable to walk unaided, and athletes who are confined to wheelchairs, being able to move independently and at a considerable speed.
