Europe’s largest inflatable slide is coming to Leeds next year as it visits Yorkshire for the first time.

It’s all part of Gung-Ho!, a seriously fun 5k run which is hitting the region in 2016.

The event launched earlier this year with thousands taking part in three successful races across the country.

Now CBeebies presenter Alex Winters, who came up with the idea for Gung-Ho!, is bringing the course to the city.

Thrill-seekers from across Yorkshire are being given the chance to show how Gung-Ho! they are as the event, which features 10 huge inflatables, heads to Temple Newsam next May.

Alex said: “People have really embraced Gung-Ho! so we’re now rolling the event out across the UK. It’s a really fun challenge and it’s been great to see the smiles as people clamber, leap and bounce over the obstacles.

“Next year we’re taking Gung-Ho! to the next level, so start setting your fitness goals for 2016 by securing your place at next year’s event… that’s if you’re Gung-Ho! enough.”

The event takes place on May 14 2016.

Tickets are available at £30. For more details visit:
