Funky Planet Leicester route

Funky Planet is a fun run like you've never experienced before. As you blast off the start line, you will orbit through four themed 'worlds', each of which includes an epic inflatable obstacle, and an added element of foam, water, colour powder or slime for a truly out of this world experience.

The course will be two laps of the 2.5km route, totalling 5km, passing through each of the worlds twice, climbing, crawling and sliding your way over 12 themed obstacles.

The 4 worlds you will explore will be:

Over the Rainbow: add a splash of colour to your summer as you are covered head to toe in colourful powder

Jungle Fever: the UK's first and only slime run will see you journeying through an inflatable jungle oozing with sticky slime

Life's a Beach: transport yourself to the seaside as you splash through beach-themed obstacles

No Place like Foam: burst your way through this bubbly world, facing the craziest obstacles on the course while being blasted with foamy fun

Funky Planet is not a race, and participants are encouraged to run, walk, jog or dance their way through this journey of discovery.
