The Superhero Series, powered by Marvel, has launched the next phase of the UK’s only mass-participation sport series dedicated to people with disabilities
With Covid19 keeping everyday heroes inside, this year’s Superhero Tri event due to take place at Dorney Lake will be replaced by At Home Superheroes. The event will consist of a flexible 20K challenge spread over 15 June and 15 July and can be completed anywhere.
From the living room, garden or neighbourhood where each participant (Superhero!) will be able to walk, run, push, wheel, canoe or swim their way to the finish line.Participants can also fly solo or unite with family and friends in their household, or remotely using a dedicated app from event entry providers RaceNation to share the challenge. Anything goes!
Staying true to the fun of Superhero Tri, participants are encouraged to dress up in full Superhero costume for their home triumphs and stay connected by sharing their progress and pictures on the app. An array of Celebrity Team Captains, from eight-time Paralympic equestrian gold medallist Sophie Christiansen to three-time Invictus Games medallist, JJ Chalmers, will be jumping into the action.
Channel 4 will be capturing the action by focusing on four teams from around the nation for a one-hour highlights programme to be aired on 15 August, presented by Clare Balding. The perfect partner for a mission that is about inspiring participants to unlock their inner superpower, Marvel will bring the epic energy of its iconic Super Hero characters to participants’ homes and neighbourhoods through lots of downloadable games, signs and dressing up ideas, to help participants feel like a true super hero.
At Home Superheroes will also receive a race pack with all the super accessories of a regular Superhero event, including race number, medal, finisher’s T-shirt, and finish line tape, so they can still experience their own personal finish-line moments.
