About us

I wanted to make a sport equipment, where people could run all out, using their full physical and mentally potential. Just like I did in my racing wheelchair. It should be stable, maneuverable at high intensity. It has worked beyond our expectations and attracted a lot of kids and teenagers with cerebral palsy and other challenges

We started as a very small business in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1990.Right from the beginning in 1990 our first product the PETRA Running bike challenged stereotypes of what people having Cerebral Palsy could or should do! The very first was made for Dane Mansoor Siddiqi who wanted to do roadraces like CPH Marathon.

A lot of young physical challenged athletes were running on our RaceRunners and in a short duration of time our prototypes had brought us so much positive feedback that we gradually we realized how popular RaceRunning could become. That is when we started to re-design and construct different sizes to find the best combination for the most athletes.

With a motivated team, we strive to be the creative minds that bring a smile to your face. That’s why we’re always looking for innovative new ways to get the best to you.

To develop the structures and rules for RaceRunning A lot of Danish and international persons have done a fantastic job to over the years, but the main stakeholder is those who have kept the Danish practical sports activities running and the international network and co-work with CP-ISRA in development.
Now in 2018 RaceRunning official enters the program of World Para Athletics, with strong endorsement from IPC to WPA to further develop the discipline for final inclusion on the Paralympic athletics event in the coming years. It is not a free buffé but a game we have to win in competition with many other events.
