Gung-Ho! is the idea of CBeebies presenter Alex Winters who was the first to try out the huge 53m long slide called ‘The Thriller’ - which is higher than three London buses.

The 5k course features ten huge inflatable obstacles including a gigantic ball pool, massive foam pit and mammoth climbing wall.

Alex said: “To actually see and have a go on ‘The Thriller’ has been a real buzz. Gung-Ho! is gearing up to be a huge event with thousands already signed up. People across Berkshire have really got behind the event and we’re very excited about it. Of course, if people don’t want to actually take part in the race, it’s also a great spectacle and there’ll be loads going on to entertain the crowds.”

The Gung-Ho! event will raise funds for Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service to provide respite, palliative and end-of-life care for children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions.

The event takes place at Royal Windsor Racecourse on 26 September and intro tickets are available for £40 until 21 August and £45 after this date. F
