We’ve got a brand new and inclusive event this summer, and are looking for some superheroes to join.

The Superhero Tri is our fully accessible flagship event for 2019; your participation can help raise vital funds to support people with ataxia and fund medical research.

What is it?

 The Superhero Tri is part of a series of events for the ‘Everyday Superhero’ and their friends and family. This event is a triathlon, with three different distances for participants to choose from (see below).

This event is truly one of a kind, as its participants are people with disabilities. People without disabilities are welcome to take part as a team member or as a sidekick of a participant.

The Superhero Tri 2019 is set to be a day packed full of fun and action – there will be food for all, and the event will be shown on Channel 4 and presented by Clare Balding!
