“It is different to the obstacles we already have and more challenging for people taking part.

“However, importantly it will still fit in with what Gung-Ho! is all about – it will be loads of fun and everyone will be able to conquer it, even if it’s with a little help from their friends.

“It is like something from the Krypton Factor where you have to dodge, climb, jump and slide your way across it. It looks so much fun and I want to be the first one to have a go on it!

“I really believe this will be a new favourite for people going Gung-Ho! in 2017. So come on, sign up and see if you can make it through the ‘Danger Zone’!”

Tickets are currently £31 and are available at www.begung-ho.co.uk.

This year, Edinburgh is the sixth stop on a fourteen-date tour of the UK.

Many runners will take part for charity, with thousands of pounds expected to be raised for good causes
