The Gung-Ho 5k, an inflatable obstacle race which includes Europe’s largest inflatable slide, will be in nearby Milton Keynes as part of a tour of eight major cities in the UK next year.
The event is scheduled for Saturday, July 9, and is open to 5,000 participants. As well as the race itself, the event will bring top DJs, and delicious food and drink stalls to the city for competitors and spectators to enjoy.
CBeebies presenter Alex Winters, who came up with the idea for Gung-Ho!, is bringing the course to the city which is the closest venue for thrill seekers from our area.
Alex said: “People have really embraced Gung-Ho! so we’re now rolling the event out across the UK. It’s a really fun challenge and it’s been great to see the smiles as people clamber, leap and bounce over the obstacles.
“Next year we’re taking Gung-Ho! to the next level, so start setting your fitness goals for 2016 by securing your place at next year’s event… that’s if you’re Gung-Ho! enough.”
Race entry costs £30 if you book by April 1 and increases thereafter to a maximum of £60 on race day. Registered participants will receive a Gung Ho! T-shirt, race bib, headband and free spectator tickets.
