Hoyt Running Chair
New racing chair available for public use
Dick Hoyt pushed his handicapped son in more than 1,000 races including marathons, triathlons and six Ironman races.
Prairie Striders Running Club has purchased that same style of chair.
It debuted Oct. 29 with nonhandicapped riders in the Hobo Day 5K, where Chris Gruenhagen pushed his son, Otto, and the Hobo Day parade, where Addison DeHaven was the pusher.
If you would like to be a pusher at a 2023 race or know of a disabled person who would enjoy experiencing a road race as a participant, please contact Prairie Striders at firstname.lastname@example.org.
