National Learning Disability Week


England Athletics (including Run England groups) are working with Mencap to support National Learning Disability Week.

Learning Disability Week 2013 will take place from the 19 to 25 August and England Athletics are encouraging running groups, as well as affiliated clubs and networks, to get involved.
