On your marks, get set...
THE Dubbo Regional Disability Carnival is just over a week away and competitors are tackling the track at No 1 Oval to taste the atmosphere.
The Carnival is hosted by Break Thru People Solutions in conjunction with the Dubbo Athletics Club, Dubbo Regional Council and One Mob Dreaming.
According to Break Thru's Tas Touvras, the carnival provides the opportunity for people across the region who have a disability to meet up with people from surrounding communities and participate in a fun and safe day of athletics.
Events include sprints from 50 m to 200 m, long jump, shot putt and novelty activities including male and female Turbo Jav!
A 25km walk will bring the carnival to a close as male and female competitors join with those in wheelchairs for a frantic finish to what promises to be a fundamentally friendly day.
