Superhero Tri

  Date:   19th August 2017 - 9:00am

Superhero Tri

We are looking for superheroes to run, walk, push, pedal, hand cycle, swim or tow in the first ever superhero tri and help change the lives of sick, disabled and disadvantaged children all throughout the UK.

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

Join #TeamVariety on the start line on Saturday 19th August and take part in one of three uniquely designed triathlons (swim, bike and push/run) that let you do as little or as much as you like. Team up with disabled and non-disabled family and friends to take on one stage each, or fly solo and do all three! Cape optional.

There are three ways to take part:

1. Team Up

For those who like to roll with a crew. This lets you unite with family and friends (disabled and non-disabled) to do a stage each. Perfect for those who might smash one or two stages but the last is like a big lump of kryptonite.

2. Grab a Sidekick

We're introducing a world first - the Sidekick Tri! This race is a unique chance to power your Superhero around the entire course. Prepare to tow them in the water and pull and push them around the bike and push/run sections. You can both be sure of a hero's welcome when you cross the finish line.

3. Fly solo

For those who want to see the mission through from start to finish. Pow! But 'flying solo' doesn't mean you have to do it all alone. Every Superhero needs a Sidekick sometimes and, as with all our challenges, you're welcome to bring support for one or more stages.

There are 3 events available:

  • Sprint Superhero/Sidekick Tri: swim 150m; bike 3k; push/run 1k
  • Half Superhero/Sidekick Tri: swim 400m; bike 10k; push/run 2.5k
  • Full Superhero/Sidekick Tri: swim 750m; bike 20k; push/run 5k
