SUPERHERO TRI  –  17th August 2019

SSIT has places for 6 Teams or 18 individual sprint places

Teams – Unite with friends, family or other SSIT Beneficiaries to create your team. Each team can have as many Sidekicks (helpers to push, pull, swim or ride with you) as you need.

Teams decide on which option they wish to enter:

  1. Sprint Superhero Tri – 150 m Swim, 3 km ride and 1 km run
  2. Half Superhero Tri – 400 m Swim, 10 km ride and 2.5 km run
  3. Full Superhero Tri – 750 m Swim, 20 km ride and 5 km run

Remember even if you can’t swim, ride or run – a SIDEKICK can pull, push, pedal or ride with you.  A Team must have one member who considers him or herself as being disabled.

FLY SOLO – The same options as above – you choose – but you have to take part in each of the disciplines (you can still have SIDEKICK ASSISTANCE)

WINTER WONDERWHEELS – 1st December 2019

SSIT has 6 Individual Places for Superheroes to Go Solo or to roll with a team of 4 or a family of 5.
