More about us

The support and commitment that Achilles NZ provides enables numerous kiwi's with disabilities to enjoy the delight and self-satisfaction of participating in mainstream running events.

Achilles welcomes and encourages anyone with a disability or physical challenge to RUN!

In Achilles parlance, running means many things. It means conventional running, of course. But it also refers to walking, wheeling, hopping, or swinging through crutches. In other words, any form of locomotion that gets you through the route!

Physical challenges include, but are not limited to, amputation, cerebral palsy, cancer, multiple sclerosis, organ transplants, paraplegia, stroke, traumatic brain injury, and visual impairment.
