Are you a Superhero? Then put your powers to the challenge!

Hospice at Home West Cumbria are bringing a fantastic new fundraising event to Cumbria this summer.

The KAPOW! Superhero Challenge is a giant inflatable obstacle course set around a 5k route.  Run, climb, duck, slide and dodge as you tackle the unique obstacles, mazes, tunnels and slides.


Test your skills at the Cockermouth Rugby Club on Saturday 6th July where your superhero effort will change lives as you raise funds for Hospice at Home in West Cumbria.

The Hospice provides palliative and end of life care to people in their own homes or community setting from Maryport to Millom and needs to raise over 1 million pounds each year to deliver their vital services.  This is the Hospice’s main fundraising event for the year.

It’s great fun for families, friends and colleagues looking for a team challenge so don your favourite superhero outfits and enter into the spirit of KAPOW!.



Tackle hurdles and barriers in the ‘Dip n Duck’, keep your balance in the bumpy ‘Alternator’, biff the bouncing bollards to bash through the ‘Biff Baff’ and scramble through ‘The Mangle’.

Stella Walsh, Senior Fundraiser for the charity said: “This event is going to be so much fun. Superhero costumes are not essential – but are encouraged!  It’s time to ditch the office suit and transform into your inner superhero. KAPOW! will replace our annual Colour Run and it is perfect for groups.  So assemble your very own squad of Wonder Women, Supermen or Incredibles and become Hospice Heroes this summer.”

Tickets are already on sale, this will be a popular event so get your teams together quickly and grab your tickets at

Early bird tickets prices are available until 31st March.

Superpowers aren’t compulsory but you need to be at least 1.2 metres (4ft) tall and all under 16s must be accompanied by a participating adult.

Entrants will be sent off in waves throughout the day so if you wish to run with friends and family you MUST purchase tickets together to ensure you are in the same wave.
