How can I raise money for charity through the event?

There are two ways you can help raise money for the partnered event charity. Click on the charity tab on the product details page for more details on who has sponsored or partnered with this event and how to donate to them.

You are responsible for getting the money to the charities directly after the event.

Can I fundraise for another charity that is not partnered with the event?

Most of the events only have a partner agreement with the charity, so if you wish to raise money for another charity that is fine however if you can raise money for the chosen charity that would be great!

With partner agreements none of the entry fee goes to the charity with this basic partner agreement, they raise money via sponsorship. 

Do I have to wear a head torch?

Yes, you do have to wear a head torch for your safety. Most of the course is well lit but there are parts that are unlit and parts of the course can be uneven, so you must have a torch to light up your way. You can buy these in our shop! Click Here

Maybe, in the foam zone you may get a bit damp from the foam and in the paint zone we spray water paint at the entrants. There will be a no play route around the zone if you don't want to get wet. It is advisable not to wear your best clothes, event T-shirts are available at the event shop or online from £5. Click Here
