Walkers can dress up as their favourite superhero and enjoy hero-themed fun zones as they walk their chosen 1km, 5km or 10km route in the beautiful countryside around the University campus which features a lake, woodlands, meadows, scenic views and a castle.

At the start there will be food and drink stalls, a merchandise stall selling superhero masks, capes and glow bands, some mystery guests will mingle with the crowds and a DeLorean sports car will be on show along with a Selfie Wall for photos.

Along the walking routes there will be a Music Zone by the lake, a snow machine in the Frozone plus a Bubble Zone you can dance through at Newton Farm Foods and a Ye Olde Hero Zone at the castle. There will also be a Memory Area to reflect and remember loved ones.

All walkers will receive a free gift before the walk and a free ‘superhero’ drink after the walk.

Spectators, supporters, walkers, staff and volunteers are invited to join the hero-themed after-party for a silent disco.

There will also be a raffle to win a luxury Mulberry handbag, delicious street food, a prosecco stall and drinks bar so bring your family along to cheer you on and enjoy the fun.
