Track and Road
If you’re interested in challenging yourself in a tough, demanding and thrilling sport, then wheelchair track and road is for you! Using specially designed racing chairs, athletes get to compete in a huge number of events and distances, from the 100 metres to 10,000 metres on the track, and anything from 5km to full marathons on the road. Athletes propel the chair by pushing small round pushrims attached to each large wheel.
There are specific rules relating to the chair, but most event rules are the same as able-bodied racing.
If testing your strength is more your thing, then perhaps the field events are more for you! Field athletes sit on specifically designed throwing frames to execute their throws in the discus, shotput and javelin events.
WS NSW Track and Road Group Training – The group train most Saturday’s throughout the year from 8am-10am at Sydney Olympic Park. If you are interested in getting involved please contact Mark Wilson on 02 9809 5260.
