Handcycle & Wheelchair Entries In Races

I'm interested to find out which marathons, half-marathons, etc allow entries from wheelchair racers (apart from London). Also does anyone know of any races that accept entries from Handcyclists ?

    I think there are quite a few races that allow entries from wheelchairs. The Bournemouth 1/2 at the end of April is one I know about in the Dorset area. I think you'll find that most big races allow entry. Not sure about Handcyclists though. Sorry can't be of any more help.

    Ramsey hosts a half marathon and 5 mile race together and they had both wheels and hands thre last time i ran it. It's in early June i think.
    Corby 5 in mid-late May is willing to host both.

    Inverness half marathon has a wheelchair section, although I don't think there have been any competitors the last 3 years (since I started running). I have no idea about hand cyclists, but I'm sure the organisers would be happy to discuss it. has contact details.
