This festive extravaganza is just the challenge to keep you super motivated through the colder months. Superheroes are invited to cycle, walk, run, wheel, push, or anything in between around Dorney’s spectacular lake. We have 1km, 5km and 10km challenges, so there’s something for everyone.

You can fly solo or unite your team to cycle, run, walk, push or be pushed around your choice of three scenic, lakeside distances. Anything goes! All we ask is that all solo entrants and at least one member of each team considers themselves to have any kind of disability to enter.

Don’t forget to register everyone taking part – Superheroes and Sidekick buddies – when you sign up, as only those registered as a full team member will be allowed on the course on the day. Each and every teammate will receive a T-shirt, medal and Super Kit Bag when they cross the finish line!

There are no cut-off times and all types of gadgets and gismos are welcome on the course, from day chairs, handcycles and trikes to tandems, race runners and bikes.

We’ll be turning up the festive fun to the max, so add plenty of Christmas bling to those Superhero costumes!

Fundraising : We ask that individuals raise a minimum of £100 / teams commit to raising £200
