Five media teams -- representing Channel 4, BBC Radio 5 Live, France, Brazil and photographers -- lined up for the race organised to celebrate the French National Paralympic Committee donating seven low cost Motivation racing wheelchairs purchased from the IPC's Agitos Foundation to French speaking African countries.
The race took place at the 2013 IPC Athletics World Championships, which was hosted in Lyon, France, between 19-28 July.

The Agitos Foundation develops and promotes physical activity and sport for people with a disability as a tool for creating positive social change throughout the world.
It harnesses sport's unique potential to build confidence, change perceptions and drive social inclusion to improve the lives of the world's one billion people with a disability.
Overall, the Agitos Foundation plays an important role in sustaining and delivering on the Paralympic Movement's global objectives: to help create a more inclusive society.
It does this by increasing awareness, forming partnerships and securing the necessary resources to implement programmes covering four key areas:
• Sports development
• Awareness and education
• Advocacy and inclusion
• Knowledge and research
The Agitos Foundation extends the philosophy of the Paralympic Games, whose athletes are role models of human potential and act as leaders of change.
