The British Wheelchair Athletics Association (BWAA) in collaboration with the BWRA, holds a series of Grand Prix events at Stoke Mandeville Stadium during the summer months. The events comprise of shot, discus, javelin and club in the field and 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m and 1500m on the track. There is a wide range of competitors from people new to the sport to Paralympic medallists, and all are most welcome. Please note that as the games are held under IPC rules the minimum age for athletes is 11 years.
Races are graded according to times so, if you are brand new, you will not find yourself next to someone whose last race was in Tokyo! Competitors should be classified but if not you can compete as a guest and guidance will be given as to how you can gain a classification. All officiating is of the highest order with all officials being UK Athletics level 3 or above and International coaches will be in attendance to offer help and advice if needed.
