Get sporty with Paralympians and TV stars ahead of Superhero Tri’s Celebrity Challenge

Last year’s Superhero Tri was an astounding success. So, it’s no surprise it is back for another year and you could be in with the chance of teaming up with superstars from sport and screen.

As part of the UK’s one and only mass-participation disability sport series, Superhero Tri is calling on budding sports enthusiasts to team up with some familiar faces.


Participants – or Everyday Superheroes – are already suiting up and digging out their capes for this year’s tri challenges set to be held at Dorney Lake on 17 August.

Discarding cut off times and equipment restrictions: anyone can get involved in the Superhero Tri.

Do you want to get involved? Well, now is your chance.

The Superhero Series is launching their celebrity competition next Thursday (7 March) as part of the Celebrity Challenge.

You have the chance to team up with a famous team captain to take on a stage of the Sprint Superhero Tri.


Sophia Warner, founder of the Superhero series, explains: “Our past winners have ranged from two to 82 and have come from all walks of life!

“What they and their families all shared was a strong Superhero spirit that saw them face this and many of life’s challenges with great passion and positivity. 

“Once again we’re looking for entrants with the same super spirit.”

Sophia continues: “All you need to do is share your story and tell us about your own unique superpower for a chance to win a place.

“All winners are welcome to bring a ‘Sidekick’ to guide, push or simply accompany them on the course if they wish and all types of ‘gadgets and gismos’ are welcome, from day chairs, handcycles, buggies and trikes to tandems, race runners, blades and adaptive bikes.

“These events really are for everyone.”


Past Team Captains have included JJ Chalmers, Billy Monger, Kadeena Cox, Jonnie Peacock and many more famous friends.

This year’s celebrities are still top secret but our snooping has assured us that, of the 50-plus Celebrity Team Captains, we’re sure to see some of our past favourites returning, alongside some new captains.

The excitement is almost too much to handle.
