Zip slide Imperial War Museum North, Manchester Saturday 4th October, 2014

Bupa Great Manchester 10k Run, Sunday 18th May, 2014

Fancy an exhilarating adrenaline rush?

Following on from last year’s incredible zip sliding experience, we’re thrilled to announce another daring 250m zip slide across the water of the Manchester Ship Canal with Zip Slides UK. Starting at the Imperial War Museum, you launch off the Air Shard at a height of 30m and land in front of the Lowry at Salford Quays

zip slide for barnabusLast year we had a lot of fun and a number of our daring zip sliding team turned up in superhero fancy dress. Barnabus staff and volunteers gathered to cheer on our team at the Lowry finish point. It was hilarious to see among others, Batman, Super Girl, Peter Pan and Batgirl laughing and screaming as they hurtled towards us making superhero poses!

There’s no previous experience needed. Zip Slides trained instructors soon put you at ease and inform you of everything you need to know on the day, they will kit you up with a harness and a helmet and send you on your way, for an experience you’ll always remember.

You can dress casual in sensible clothes and shoes or dress to impress in a super hero style fancy dress (whatever you choose to do, the emphasis is definitely on fun).

The registration fee to take part in this event is £45 and when it comes to raising funds for Barnabus, the sky is the limit but please aim to raise a minimum donation of £100.

A group are already zipping for Barnabus on Saturday 4th October in the 2.30am – 3.30am time slot; if you would like to zip with us, choose this time slot or alternatively choose another available time slot on that day or on Sunday 5th October.
