Race Running / Frame Running

  • Anyone can run! Frame Running also known as Race Running is an innovative sport for people with a physical disability who have impaired balance and may not be able to functionally run. This sport can be enjoyed by any age.
  • The Frame Runner trike is a custom built three-wheeled mobility frame.
  • The runner is fully supported by a saddle and leans against a chest support, propelling themselves forward by their feet (one or both), while using the hands and/or arms to steer.
  • Participating in Frame Running provides each individual the freedom to move and run in a supported and balanced way without a walker, wheelchair or similar device.
  • Frame Running is a liberating sport for those who have impaired balance, for example cerebral palsy, brain injury, high leg amputations, and many other balance impairments.
  • Our therapists are happy to deliver an introductory "have-a-go" Frame Running Session at Chamwell if you want to have-a-go.

The sport of Olympians! Chamwell’s own Boccia club started in the summer of 2021 (generously supported by the charity Sense) initially as a trial, but the response has been so positive we are planning to continue the club.  We are lucky to have local Boccia Champion Archie Eaton as our lead coach for the sessions.

Boccia (pronounced 'Bot-cha') is a Paralympic sport introduced in 1984

Players throw, kick or use a ramp to propel a ball onto the court with the aim of getting closest to a 'jack' ball

It is designed specifically for athletes with a disability affecting locomotor function

Our Boccia Club runs on Saturdays from 2pm – 3:30pm. We request a contribution of £4 each session attended.
