Online tickets for this event have now closed. However, you will be able to purchase them on the day (we suggest you bring cash)

Challenge yourself in 2019 by taking part in our zip-slide at Portman Road, Ipswich from the top of the football stadium to the bottom.

Registration is £35 to enter and £100 suggested sponsorship. 

Minimum age is 12 years old. Any participants under the age of 16 will need to have a parent or guardian present at the event to provide written consent.

A zip slide consists of a pulley suspended on a cable, usually made of stainless steel, mounted on a slope. It is designed to enable a user propelled by gravity to travel from the top to the bottom of the inclined cable by holding on to, or attaching to, the freely moving pulley. Zip slides come in many forms, most often used as a means of entertainment.

With a fully experienced zip slide team, to give you all the training you need in preparation for the challenge on the day.
