The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) announced today that RaceRunning is to be introduced as a World Para Athletics event. This is fabulous and very exciting news. Over the coming weeks CPISRA will provide further information. 

 

Below is copy of the announcement by Ryan Montogomery, IPC Summer Sports Director and also below is a link to the World Para Athletics: RACERUNNING paper jointly released by World Para Athletics and CPISRA.

 

"Dear NPC President, Secretary General & National Athletics Federations,

 

As part of the IPC and World Para Athletics commitment to developing para athletics opportunities for athletes with high support needs we are pleased to inform you of the latest developments with regards to the integration of RaceRunning into World Para Athletics.

 

World Para Athletics and CPISRA have been in discussions for some time about increasing the participation of athletes with High Support Needs in World Para Athletics track events. The basis of this discussion was to allow for the recognition of RaceRunning within the para athletics programme to occupy the current T31 and T32 classes, classes which over the course of the last years have had no representation or participation in para athletics.

 

World Para Athletics believe this development addresses our strategic agenda of providing athletes with high support needs further opportunity and enhances World Para Athletics diversity and inclusion in line with the objectives of the Paralympic Movement.

You will find attached a detailed introduction to RaceRunning and its future within the family of both World Para Athletics and CPISRA.

I kindly ask you to circulate this information to the relevant national bodies within your community

 

Best Ryan"
