Superhero Tri

Superheroes here, there, everywhere

It’s big. It’s bold. It’s gutsy. It’s the UK’s one and only disability sports series for the Everyday Superhero.

Superhero Tri took place at Dorney Lake in August and encourages anyone with a physical or mental disability to take part. Entrants can use any equipment they need to get as far as they feel able to around the course.

It’s not about winning, it’s about taking part together.

The event, now in its second year, was started by Paralympian Sophia Warner. It aims to remove some of the restrictive rules which often deter people from challenging themselves in sports events.

Everyday superheroes, who perhaps have had to face some of life’s toughest challenges, compete alongside amateur sportspeople and Paralympians in a challenge which sees all participants as equals.

We are proud to support such a special event and searched up and down the country to bring together ‘Team Irwin Mitchell’.

Our Superhero squad was packed with incredible clients with inspirational stories, some of which you can read about throughout our website.

Wheelchair tennis superstar Alfie Hewett captained our team and took part in the celebrity race alongside famous faces like Adam Hills and Jonny Peacock.

It was a truly inspirational day and one that we’d encourage everyone to be a part of. The next big event by the Superhero Series team is Winter Wonderwheels - read more about the Superhero Series.

Our partnership with the Superhero Tri is 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. This event is a perfect way to achieve this and celebrate how lucky we are to know so many everyday superheroes.
