Disability Compete

We compete in several competitions through the year:

The athletes are encouraged to enter the Cambridgeshire County open T&F events in the spring and summer – there are usually three events – and the County T&F Championships.

We also encourage our athletes to enter the Eastern Regional Disability T&F Championships where there are competition opportunities for athletes with most types of disability (e.g. amputees, Cerebral Palsy, visually impaired, learning difficulties etc).

Athletes can also progress to other Disability event series such as those run at Stoke Mandeville on a regular basis, or those run by disability specific organisations.

For wheelchair athletes favouring longer distances there is:

  • GEAR (Great East Anglian Run) which is a 10k in King’s Lynn in May in the past – it’s a big event, probably the biggest 10k in the region
  • Great Eastern half marathon in Peterborough in September.

We have previously had winners in both events and we are currently trying to find a few more appropriate road races.

For the national competitive events, the current 2019 list is here.
