Young athletes who use wheelchairs or have a physical or sensory impairment can take part in the TCS Mini London Marathon championships in the following categories:
- Under-14 Boys and Girls Wheelchair
- Under-17 Men and Women Wheelchair
- Under-14 Boys and Girls Ambulant
- Under-17 Men and Women Ambulant
Wheelchair waves: To be eligible for the wheelchair event an individual must be physically disabled. They can use a racing chair, sports chair or lightweight chair and must self-propel themselves around the 2.6K-course within a time limit of 35 minutes. Participants must wear a helmet and gloves.
We will have two class of athletes - T33/34 and T53/54, Male and Female. If a participant is new to wheelchair events and do not have a classification, they will be entered into the T53/54 category.
Ambulant waves: To be eligible for the ambulant event an individual must have:
- a physical impairment that affects their lower limbs
- a visual impairment (visually impaired athletes can request a guide, if required)
- an arm amputation or lack of movement in one or both arms
Ambulant participants must be able to complete the course in 45 minutes.
An athlete with an intellectual impairment must have a T14 classification.
All other impairment groups do not have to have a classification but will be referred to classification if British Athletics deems them to fit into the Para Athletics pathway.
Any participants who are hearing impaired or those with a learning disability can enter the TCS Mini London Marathon championships via their region/borough Details can be found here.
