Track includes races in the standing and wheelchair racing categories at distances of 100 meters, 200 meters, 400 meters, 800 meters, 1500 meters, and a mixed classification 4 x 100 meter relay.

Athletes with lower function and/or impaired balance use specialized equipment, such as a wheelchair racing chair.
