The wheelchair racing section was established in October 2018 when confirmation of a grant of £10,000 from the Eileen Alexander Legacy Fund was received. This enabled the purchase of 3 racing chairs and other training equipment. More recently it has received £550 from England Athletics to enable it to be set up as a satellite section of Bedford and County AC, and a further £550 from The proceeds of a local Rotary Clubs event, ‘A Celebration of Disability Sport’ held in May 2019.
Successes to date include:
Varun Bandi – 3rd in his age group at the London mini marathon in April 2019
Hugo Cracknell – reduced his 100m PB from 34 secs to 27 secs in his first race.
