Why we love the Superhero Series:
The Superhero Tri is the UK’s only mass-participation sportsseries dedicated to the nation’s 14.1m people with disabilities - we think thisis awesome!
We also love that they have thrown out cut-off times andequipment restrictions so everybody can take part and have the best timepossible.
The emphasis of the event is very much on the fun so masks,capes and pants over tights are positively encouraged!
Sophie Warner, Paralympian and Superhero Series Founder said
“We believeeveryone deserves their chance in the spotlight, especially the EverydaySuperheroes who boldly face the challenges life throws at them.”
We couldn't agree more with Sophie and her team at theSuperhero Series and that is why we have the DSUK team available for you tosign up for.
