Get Kids Going! wheelchair racers performed brilliantly in the recent Brighton Half Marathon, one of the first UK road races of 2022.
Paralympian athlete Moatez “Mo” Jomni won the men’s wheelchair race with a time of 62 minutes and 15 seconds.
We were also delighted that Eden Rainbow-Cooper won the women’s wheelchair race with a time of 73 minutes and 18 seconds.
After the race Mo said “Me and “Nub Nub” @edenlilit54 (Eden) good start to the season. Tough conditions had me questioning why am I racing on a Sunday ! Glad I did it”
Fabienne Andre also came second in the Brighton Half Marathon. All three athletes are from the Weir Archer Academy which was set up by our President David Weir to train young wheelchair athletes.
Alongside the elite races, thousands of charity runners took to the streets of Brighton, raising money for our charity and many other local and national charities. Please visit this link, if you would like to take part in the Brighton Marathon 2022 which takes place on April 10th.
We wish Mo, Eden and Fabs all the best for their future races this season.
