RaceRunnning

 

 

 


RaceRunning is an international disability sport in which children and adults compete with running bikes on an athletics track.

Events range from 40m to 3000m. Competitors are classified based on their disability and race against other competitors in their class. There are 4 categories RR1 through RR4. In the above medal award photo you can see an RR1 boy, RR2 boy and an RR3 boy.

 

Following a suggestion from a physiotherapist at Bobath Scotland, Gavin tried a Running Bike at age 5. Straight away Gavin was able to travel much faster than on a traditional 3 wheel trike where his legs needed to be strapped to supports.
