TEAMS are being sought to tackle a giant inflatable obstacle course at Temple Newsam in Leeds.

Kapow! Superhero Challenge is a new fun-filled obstacle course event taking place at Temple Newsam Estate on June 30.

You can run jog or walk around a course with 10 giant inflatable obstacles, lots of foam and a few more surprises along the way.

Families, friends and colleagues are being encouraged to dress up as their favourite superhero and take part just for fun or raise money for a charity.

It is being organised by the type 1 diabetes charity JDRF in collaboration with eight other charities including Martin House Children’s Hospice, Children’s Heart Surgery Fund, Brainstrust, Leeds Hospital Children’s Appeal, RSPCA Leeds & Wakefield Branch and Yorkshire Cancer Centre Appeal.

Sadie Munro of JDRF said: “Eight local charities have come on board to help make this event happen, so we’re set for a super day that will raise thousands for local causes.

“We’re encouraging people to dress up as their favourite superhero too, so whether you are an Avenger, X-Men or Justice League fan all are welcome to take part and be heroes.”

Obstacles include a four metre high slide, inflatable tunnels, foam walls and a maze.

Ellie Barker of Martin House Children’s Hospice, said: “This is a really exciting event to be part of. It’s brilliant to be able to collaborate with so many other local causes to make the event really special.’”
