Calling all superheroes – WE NEED YOU!
Carlisle Racecourse has teamed up with Jigsaw, Cumbria’s Children’s Hospice to host a very special race on Easter Saturday, March 31.
Before the racecourse’s annual Easter Family Fun Race Day, superheroes of the two-legged variety will be welcomed onto the famous Cumbria track for a special half furlong (100 metre) dash.
All proceeds raised by competitors of the Superhero Stakes – who can be any age or running ability – will go to Jigsaw.
Superhero fancy dress is certainly welcomed but not essential for all runners. We just need you to bring your amazing super powers and help such a deserving cause!
There will be prizes for the fastest superhero home (both adults and youngsters), best fancy dress and best superhero pose as you cross the line – complete with full race commentary by our race day announcer.
Geraldine McKay, General Manager of Carlisle Racecourse, said:
“Our Easter weekend meeting is always hugely popular with families and this year we are going with a superhero theme.
“We have lots of entertainment, fun and games lined up and, this year, we wanted to do something really special.
“The half furlong Superhero Stakes dash will be a really fun race and we hope as many people as possible take part. All entry fees will go to Jigsaw which is such a wonderful charity and one that does amazing work for young people and their families.
“So, come on down, be a superhero for the day and do something really special for this fantastic charity.”
Entry for the Superhero Stakes is £10 per adult, free for under-17s. All money raised, together with any sponsorship will go to Jigsaw.
