Run with Hippocampe Marathon
“I myself had already converted a sport wheelchair into a running push wheelchair for Falco. I took this with me at work to be able to run with other clients. I then had the opportunity to purchase a Hippocampe Marathon and Trail wheelchair for the clients to participate to running.
After having ran with a normal wheelchair for years, it was a very pleasant surprise for me and therefore an improvement. So the transition went very easy!”
Gerrit and the Hippocampe wheelchair today
“Today it is a valued addition for the clients to go outside a little more. I can safely say that running with a Hippocampe wheelchair is very easy for me. Of course it works differently than when you’re not running with a wheelchair. But I’m so used to it that it takes no effort and I enjoy taking clients with me during my run. I run three days a week at work with the wheelchair Marathon and then switch with different clients in between.
Unfortunately, I no longer use the Marathon wheelchair on the weekends, sadly Falco passed away a short while ago. I would have liked to run another marathon with Falco, but unfortunately that will never be possible again… 🌠”
