We are keen to welcome more wheelchair users to participate.

Wheelchair Racing Academy
The Northants Wheelchair Racing Academy, based at Corby AC, welcomes disabled athletes who wish to try out this exciting para-athletic event. We have 6 different sized chairs belonging to the club, and an assortment of wheelchair racing gloves and helmets. If you have seen wheelchair racing and would like to try it out, please get in touch. You will need to be self propelling, so you can reach the push rims, and able to lean forward. Contact Sue Rey on email@example.com or Alan Wymant on firstname.lastname@example.org.
The indoor track and field season runs from October to the end of March. This includes open meetings, regional championships and sport hall athletics. The Midland championships are held in February, and the National championships in February/March (requiring qualification).
