To add to the spirit of Ainsley's Angels of America, we call these adaptive racing chairs “Chariot’s” just as the Romans did in their olympic games of days past.
"Chariot racing was one of the most popular
ancient Greek, Roman, and Byzantine sports."
The Chariot is designed to help keep the Angel Athlete-rider safe, as well as safety for the runner, while giving the competitive ability to endure distances ranging from a 5K or 10K to a half, full, or ultra marathon road race.
The options on design lend themselves to the special needs of the rider. There are racing chair builders such as Team Hoyt Racing Chairs and others that understand the needs of both the rider and the runner. The end result is designs that ensure the highest safety level while allowing the team to be competitive. These builders continue to improve their design as the popularity and participation of these athlete’s continue to grow.
Ainsley's Angels of America is excited and stands ready to assist you with getting either the brand new Freedom Push Chair by Advance Mobility, the Axiom Racer Conversion by Adaptive Star, or the Team Hoyt Blade for your Angel Athlete-rider!
