They have local chapters throughout the United States, whether your ultimate goal is to participate in wheelchair marathons or you're just looking to try out the sport. You'll have access to one sponsored organized workout a week to help keep you motivated. In addition, there are regularly scheduled long distance running events and a division for children as well.
