Dig out the trainers from the back of the wardrobe for a 5K obstacle course which returns to Crystal Palace for a fifth successive year this summer.
On the Gung Ho! giant inflatable obstacle course you can run, jump, climb, dodge and slide your way to victory over a 5km challenge which has been Inspired by TV shows like Total Wipeout and It’s A Knockout.
Gung Ho! returns to Crystal Palace Park on June 6 and registration is now open.
The obstacle course includes an opportunity to tackle a range of gargantuan obstacles including ‘The Wall’ and ‘Danger Zone’ before conquering the ‘Final Countdown’ to successfully complete this heart-thumping assault course.
Organisers say they are gearing up to make the 2020 Gung Ho! the best yet with new obstacles and its legendary fun-filled party atmosphere.
Event director Alan Brown said: “We love coming to London, which was at the top of list of places to go back to in 2020.
“We’re working extremely hard to make each event fresh and exciting, so that even if you have taken part before, going Gung-Ho! in 2020 will be even more exciting than it was the first time.
“Gung Ho! is like no other 5K event in the UK as it is not about speed, toughness and endurance, but about having fun and challenging yourself and we provide everything to make that happen.
“It also has huge appeal as it’s not a race, which does make a huge difference if you’re a first timer.
“Gung Ho! is the perfect event for people of all ages, size and fitness to find their inner ‘Gung Ho!’ and have an amazing day out.”
The event is perfect for families, friends and colleagues to take part together in completing the Gung Ho! Challenge, the only stipulation is entrants must be at least 4ft tall.
This year, more than 25,000 entrants are expected to take part at Gung Ho! events across the UK.
