20TH Wheelchair Half Marathon
An unmissable event
Created in 2001, the Wheelchair Half Marathon has now become an important part of the Serge Vigot La Rochelle Marathon week-end. Last year, there were 10 wheelchair athletes from all over France in this half-marathon, which has become one of the biggest such races in France. The organizers want to offer the best welcome to the wheelchair athletes and so we propose them free of charge : The Saturday night Pasta-Party, accommodation for the Saturday night, a windcheater jacket, a basket of oysters Marennes Oléron, a medal and an official certificate, prizes for the first 10 finishers (Refer to ‘Prizes’ on page 9). We only ask for a 15 € registration fee.
This year, the wheelchair half marathon celebrates its 20th edition ! For this event, the sport committee for the disabled will present its different actions in favor of an insclusive sport and the various activities offered in Charente- Maritime department and in France.
