Have you seen para-athletics on TV, at the world championships or Paralympics? You may have heard these athletes referred to as ‘super-heroes’ or ‘super-human’ – well they’re not! They are just ordinary people who try extraordinarily hard to get stronger and fitter, and have a lot of fun and success in the process. 

Whatever your abilities, why not give para-athletics a try? You may have sensory, physical, or intellectual challenges but if you want to achieve, come and talk to us.

We cater for all forms of track running, including ambulant running, frame running and wheelchair racing.

We have regular sessions on Sunday mornings, and at other times by  arrangement.

For further details and to discuss your specific requirements contact Bob Purcell at or phone on 01452 417990.
