Para athletics

Starting this year CUAC is looking to expand the number of students with disabilities within the club. Whether you’re a seasoned para-athlete or just looking to get into sport CUAC has something for everyone. All the coached training sessions throughout the week are integrated sessions with the able-bodied athletes. If you have any questions, see the Field, Endurance and Sprint training pages or speak to the para sport representative Nils Rehm (rehmnr@cardiff.ac.uk).

 

Classification

Whilst you do not need a classification to be a part of the club or for training you will need a classification in order to be able to compete in para-competitions and races. You are still able to compete in able-bodied competitions with or without a classification. For information on the UK Athletics National Classification process, please refer to the information available on their website.

 

BUCS

BUCS has a wide range of events available for athletes of varying disabilities and a fantastic opportunity to compete against other para-athletes. Events range from ambulant sprints, jumps, throws, wheelchair races and seated throws letting you compete regardless of your disability. BUCS is one of the biggest events of the university calendar. If you have questions regarding BUCS see the BUCS page or speak to BUCS Captain James Heneghen (heneghanjm@cardiff.ac.uk).

 

Facilities

The facilities at NIAC include an indoor and outdoor track, and equipment is available for a full range of para-athletics events.
