IF YOU have ever wanted to dress up as your favourite superhero and try your luck round a fun and competitive obstacle course then now is your chance.

The Martlets Kapow event will be held at Preston Park, Brighton, on Saturday, September 14.

The event, now in its third year, encourages participants to dress up and their favourite superheroes or villains and tackle the gruelling five kilometre inflatable obstacle course, which runs for two loops of the park.

Ten giant, bouncy, obstacles make up the course and entrants can run individually or as part of a team.

The course is open to anyone who is over the height of 1.2 metres and youngsters must be accompanied by a paying adult.

Participants are encouraged to sign up in advance but stations will be set up on the day for those who decide to take part after a spur of the moment decision.

Those signing up in advance can also get 25 per cent off their ticket until July 31 thanks to a special Martlets promotion.

A general adult ticket for the Kapow run costs £25 but with the deal it can be purchased for £18.75.

Until the end of the month under 16s tickets cost £12.75 and a family ticket, for two adults and two children, is £54.

Mum-of-two, Katharine Spalding took part last year and loved it.

She said: “I tackled the Kapow course last year with my two children, Joshie and Maisie, and we had such brilliant fun together – from planning our superhero outfits to climbing up and then jumping down huge inflatables.

“I would 100 per cent recommend it to anyone. You’ll be smiling for days afterwards and it’s all to support a fantastic charity.”

As well as enjoying the course runners will be doing their part to raise money for the Martlets Hospice.

Money raised will go towards helping Martlets continue to help people across the Brighton and Hove area and across Sussex.

The Martlets is hoping to get about 500 people to the event to take on the course and aid them in the fundraising efforts.

The Kapow run starts at 11am and ends at 1.30pm.

The 25 per cent of tickets deal ends on July 31.
