What should I wear?
Your Splash Out t-shirt, plus some sensible running shoes. Splash Out involves participants getting wet and potentially cold, please come prepared with a change of clothes and towel. Please also remember Splash Out is an outdoor event, so it is essential you come prepared for the English weather!

Splash Out T-shirt
Your Splash Out t-shirt is available to collect from the Fundraising department of Francis House Children’s Hospice prior to the event, (office hours only Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm) however, if you are unable to do this, you will be able to collect it when registering your attendance at the event.

Can we skip obstacles if they are too difficult?
Our priority is for all participants to enjoy the event. If you or any of your group are struggling with an obstacle, then it is not necessary to complete it. You can walk around all obstacles or move on to the next one.
