We are delighted to be an official partner and proud supporter of the Superhero Series, a mass participation inclusive sports event giving total beginners through to elite athletes the chance to find their inner superpower and achieve inspirational goals.
Superhero Series, founded by Paralympian, Sophia Warner, are holding their inaugural event, the Superhero Tri, on 19th August 2017 at Dorney Lake, Windsor.
The not-for-profit event offers the opportunity for all potential athletes with disabilities – from absolute beginners to seasoned sportspeople – to channel their own superpowers in a variety of athletic events.
By removing the restrictive rules and regulations that deter or exclude the majority of people with disabilities from existing mass-participation events, Superhero Series has broken down many of the barriers to disability sport participation.
We are one of the event’s official partners and are supporting the Superhero Tri as part of our Don’t Quit, Do It campaign to encourage more of the UK’s 12 million disabled people to get involved with sport.
The Superhero Series includes a variety of events such as:
- Mass participation triathlons and triathlon relays over three distances (Sprint, Half and Full) – friends and family without disabilities can participate in the relay provided one relay member has a disability.
- Sidekick Tri – a unique triathlon where those with disabilities can receive additional support from their Sidekick, particularly towing them round the swim and pushing around the Bike or Run stages.
- Celebrity Superhero Tri with Team Captains recruiting team mates to join them on a triathlon relay team.
- Elite Para-triathlon race.
Team captains in the Superhero Series events include Paralympians Anne Dickens, Sophie Christiansen OBE and Megan Giglia, as well as disabled TV presenter, artist and model, Sophie Morgan and former Royal Marine and Paralympics presenter, JJ Chalmers.
