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 100m to 10,000m on the track, and anything from 5km to full marathons on the road.
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.
