Build a Track with Shauna

My name is Shauna Bocquet, I am 16 years old and was born with Spina Bifida. I took up wheelchair racing when I was 8 years old and I am a member of Craughwell Athletic Club in Galway.

Last year, I became U17 Junior World Champion at the IPC Junior Worlds in Nottwil, Switzerland.
I am now working towards qualifying for the U20 Junior World championships in 2021 and the Senior European Championships in 2022.
My long term goal is to qualify for the Paralympic games to be held in Paris in 2024 and a track would go a long way in helping me making this dream come true.

I am currently training on the gravel track in Craughwell and I travel to either Athlone or Ennis to spend time on a tartan track to get ready for competitions. This puts a big strain on my family and myself as those tracks are only available at certain times and, very often, late in the evening.

The Dublin Marathon has been called off but I will challenge myself to run the Marathon Distance on Sunday 25th of October around the roads of Craughwell. I am looking for your support and sponsorship to raise funds so we can build a running track in Craughwell.

You can support by either directly sponsoring me or by joining the virtual event and run the marathon distance, individually or as a team, over the October Bank Holiday Weekend and get your friends and family to sponsor you!

Alternatively, you can join our 42 Challenge by simply donating online and completing your activity over the October bank holiday weekend. 

Be it 4.2Km, 4.2 Mile, 42km, 42 Mile or 42 minutes! Swim, Walk, Crawl, Jog, Wheel, Skate, Bike!

Join the fun, get active and support me!
