Help superpower the UK’s only mass-participation disability sports series!

We're still collecting donations

On the 16th August 2019 we'd raised £41,500 with 61 supporters in 92 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

Who are Superhero Series

Superhero Series is the UK’s only mass disability sports series for the Everyday Superhero!. We have two epic annual events to choose from Superhero Tri in August and we also have a festive extravaganza, Winter Wonderwheels in December.

Our mission is simple. To create fun, full-throttle mass-participation challenges where people with disabilities call the shots and don’t have to worry about cut-off times or equipment restrictions.

For all our sporting challenges you can either fly solo or team up with family and friends to do as much or as little as you wish, with as much or as little support as you need. If you want flippers or floats in the water or need to use your powerchair, we make it possible. In fact, as far as we’re concerned anything goes!



For our summer event, Superhero Tri, we chose triathlon challenges because swimming, cycling and running are the three most popular disability sports. You can do the whole thing if you wish or choose to do just one or two stages as a relay with family and friends.

Alternatively, Superheroes can be powered round the entire course by their chosen Sidekicks in our unique Sidekick Tri events. We also have a fantastically festive event every December, Winter Wonderwheels, where you can run, walk, cycle, push or be pushed around Dorney Lake to help keep you motivated through the colder months!



Superhero Series is hoping to raise £65000 to support this truly inclusive sporting event. To bring a day like no other to all our Everyday Superheros to participate in sport whether you have a hidden or physical disability. The raised funds will, through our rewards, put more Everyday Superheros on the course that otherwise wouldn’t have the opportunity.

Helping specialist schools & organisations with low financial resources, activate team places that otherwise wouldn't be available. So from donating towards the cost of a medal to becoming a Superhero Series partner we can, along with our current supporters, release the inner Superhero that's in us all.



How & Money

Each Individual donation made to our Crowdfunding rewards allows Superhero Series to subsidise the participants on our course. Providing every Superhero and Sidekick with a medal, T-shirt, Superhero goody bag, water support through our Superhero dinghy and a place on the Superhero Series course.

Superhero Series also have Charity and Corporate Friends rewards, creating a fundraising platform at our events so they can raise money and awareness to further the fantastic work they do already. Superhero Series will invest the funds to support the day as a whole.

Providing a bespoke ramp to help participants in and out the water, suitable changing and toilets facilities, ensuring every participant has a seamless experience on the day.

Our founder – Sophia Warner

Paralympian Sophia Warner was given access to a whole world of sporting opportunities as an elite athlete. But as any everyday person with a disability looking to do sports events for fun she’s found it a real struggle.

Her own experiences combined with meeting so many sports lovers who are crying out for opportunities are the inspiration for this Series.



“I know first-hand what a hugely positive impact sport can have on a person’s life and I believe everyone should have the chance to work towards and achieve a momentous sporting goal. With your help, we can give even more people the chance to be a Superhero for the day.”


Thank you to our Superhero supporters
