Q: Can I walk the course or skip an obstacle?

Yes to both!

You can tackle the course however you like – run, walk, cartwheel or a combination of the above!

If you would rather not take on an obstacle you will be able to go around, just follow the marshall’s instructions.

Is there a minimum height requirement?

Yes, participants must be over 1.24m / 4ft tall.

Under 16s must be accompanied on the course by a paying adult.

Please check the event Terms and Conditions for full details.

Will I get wet?

Some courses do have a fun foam station at the finish.

But this depends on the venue, so check with your event organiser.

Of course we can’t control what might fall from the sky…

Can I buy a ticket on the day?

This depends on the event organiser.

To avoid disappointment we do suggest that you book your tickets in advance, as tickets sold on the day can be quite a bit more expensive.

Will I get covered in paint?

No!

There’s no coloured powder or paint used at KAPOW! events

Is there a minimum age?

The giant obstacles can be challenging for younger superheroes, so whilst there’s no specific age limit everyone using the course must be over 1.24m tall.

And all under 16s must be accompanied on the course by a paying adult.

Please check the event Terms & Conditions for more information.

Q: Is the race timed?

No, KAPOW! events are not timed.

You don’t have to be a runner, and you’re not racing against the clock.

Once you’re on the course you can take your time tackling the obstacles.

Can I bring my dog?

Dogs are not allowed on the course.

This is for the safety of all our participants.

Please check the event information about information on whether dogs are allowed at the venue or in the event village.

Can I get a refund?

Please check the booking information for your event.

Can spectators attend?

Yes! The event will be open to spectators but it won’t always be possible for spectators to follow you around the course.

Please check the booking information for your event.

Can I wear fancy dress?

Absolutely!  This is your chance to show off your full superhero splendour!

Seriously though, please make sure that any capes or other attachments to your costume are not going to cause you or others to trip.

Capes etc. should also be easily detachable – e.g. use Velcro fastenings.
