Volunteer With Frame Running

Frame running (formerly race running) originated in Denmark in the 1990’s. It is an athletics event in which individuals with impaired mobility can walk or run using a special running frame called a racerunner. The running frame is a three-wheeled frame with handlebars, a chest support and a saddle but no pedals. Those taking part in frame running range from children to adults, and they train for track events from a 60m sprint up to a 1500m distance event.

Aberdeen Amateur Athletic Club are looking for volunteers to help with this training group, Mondays 4.30-5.30pm at Aberdeen Sports Village. No prior knowledge of coaching is necessary as the club will offer training and mentoring support. You would provide one-to-one support and encouragement to athletes and help deliver the training programme developed by the lead coach. Knowledge of basic bike maintenance would be useful and a PVG from Disclosure Scotland is required.
