Frame Running Clinic (4yrs +)

For TVCC clients, 4 yrs and older, who have cerebral palsy or other neuromuscular disorders.

What to Expect

Frame Running is an athletic discipline for people with cerebral palsy or related neuromuscular disorders.

The Frame Runner is a wheeled frame with a saddle, body support, and no pedals. The athlete steers the structure using their hands or arms.

Athletes can run long distances in a secure and stable bike-like structure. It gives the athletes the opportunity to move freely on their feet without the risk of falling.

Frame Running has recently been added to the World Para Athletics program and could potentially be included in the 2024 Paris Paralympic Games. -OCPSA
