Last chance to sign up for a 20% discount on registration from September 1 to September 14!

IT’S the final chance to join the fundraising fun with Martlets KAPOW! their superhero-themed 5k challenge course of ten huge inflatables to squeeze through, jump over and slip and slide around.

The event will take place at 11am – 3.30pm in Preston Park, Brighton on Saturday, September 14, 2019.

To celebrate the news that Martlets Ambassador Norman Cook has booked his place to attend again this year, tickets are being offered at a special 20% discount from September 1-14 at or on 01273 747 455 using code NORM2019.

KAPOW! is a child-friendly event – anyone over 1.2 m can enjoy climbing up and jumping down the huge inflatables – if accompanied by a paying adult.  Runners are encouraged to dress up as their favourite superhero and tackle ten enormous inflatables – from the ‘Stairs of Doom’ rope slide, through the Twisty Tunnels and the Mangle – and ending up at the ‘Splat’ foam station.

Everyone taking part will be doing their bit to be a fundraising superhero for Martlets, a local charity providing free care to people living with terminal illness and their families.

Katharine Spalding, who took part with her children last year is urging others to sign up.

She said: “Joshie and Maisie can’t wait to take part in KAPOW! again as we had so much fun as a family last time.  They have been getting their superhero costumes ready and have decided to be Martlets superheroes as the hospice team looked after my dad so well when he was ill and we want to show our support.   I would recommend KAPOW to anyone, you will have a great time – it’s impossible to do the course without a huge smile on your face and you’ll be helping a great local charity.”
