The Superhero Triathlon is a disability sports series for the everyday superhero! The idea is simple: to create fun, full-throttle challenges where people with disabilities call the shots and don’t have to worry about cut-off times or equipment restrictions.

Meet the superheroes

Motivation has four teams in the running this year – two led by para-athlete Chloe Ball-Hopkins, one led by Max Thomas, and one led by City of Birmingham Rockets wheelchair basketball team captain, Andy Craddock.

You may recognise Chloe - her recently launched jumpsuit with online retailer ASOS has made the headlines for being inclusive and fabulous. As a Motivation ambassador, she’s organised a quiz night with Pieminister pies to raise money. Chloe has got two teams competing for us at the Superhero Triathlon, and it’s a battle of the sexes with girls vs. boys! You can donate to her teams’ JustGiving page here.

Andy has already done two sponsored events for us this year – the Birmingham 10K and the Birmingham Half Marathon. He’s also fundraised at Birmingham New Street station and held raffles on his Just Giving page to raise money for Motivation. Prizes have included a weekend stay in Antwerp!

Celebrity captains

Andy and Chloe were lucky enough to be chosen to join celebrity teams! Andy is joining Laura Turner - a former GB goalball player, professional dressage rider, blind-footballer and British national track cyclist. Chloe is joining Frank Gardner -  the award-winning BBC journalist - for the celebrity triathlon.

We can’t wait to cheer on our heroes and we will update this page on how it went. For now, you can follow developments on our Twitter or donate to our JustGiving page.
