RaceRunning gets World Para Athletics Status!
World Para Athletics announced on Wednesday, 25 October, the inclusion of RaceRunning events for athletes with severe co-ordination impairments in competitions from 2018.
A selective RaceRunning programme will be included at the Berlin 2018 World Para Athletics European Championships, scheduled to take place from 20-26 August.
Currently governed by the Cerebral Palsy International Sports and Recreation Association (CPISRA), RaceRunning was first introduced over 25 years ago in Denmark for athletes with high support needs. Competitors use a three-wheeled frame to provide support as they race around the track.
Quest 88 brought RaceRunning and the RaceRunner to the UK 14 years ago and is delighted with the news and is proud to have played its part in helping to grow the sport in the UK, alongside RaceRunning Scotland, CP Sport and the growing number of clubs spreading across the UK.
