Are you ready to take on the mission? Book your tickets now!

Join East Anglian Air Ambulance this October for The Ultimate 5K! To celebrate being one of the first air ambulances in the country to fly to unlit sites at night and our incredible crews who overcome challenges day and night, we have launched Neon Night Mission and have combined your favourite parts of a 5K! #neonnightmission

The bases

Mission 1: Neon/Colour Foam Station. Cloud cover is low… Can the neon illuminations guide you through the foam tunnel?

Mission 2: Wind Tunnel. Are you strong enough to run through the helicopter downdraft? Enter into the wind tunnel where you will fight against the draft to cross the ‘H’ landing pad. Noise and flashing lights will be added to give an emergency experience.

Mission 3: Paint Station. Time to get glowing! Turn yourself 100% EAAA with your very own unique paint job. An inviting tunnel that will glow with lights. As you walk through the tunnel it will be raining yellow and red dry powder paint.

Mission 4: Neon Night party station! Can you find your way in the dark using your enhanced night vision? You will enter a tunnel of bright green swirling lights, walk across a carpet of neon signs and dance your way through the station!

Mission 5: The secret one. It’s time for landing – it’s going to be a bumpy ride. 

This 5K run is for anyone aged 12 and over who is looking for a fun challenge to complete while supporting EAAA!

Please note that missions may be subject to change due to factors beyond our control, but will be replaced with equally exciting missions.
