DAYTON – The Insane Inflatable 5K, a dynamic fun run series made up of inflatable obstacles and taking place in over 115 cities across the United States, is coming to Dayton on Sept. 17.
The event will kick off at approximately 8:30 a.m. with the first wave, and additional waves will run concurrently until noon or 1 p.m.
The Insane Inflatable 5K is designed to be accessible to everybody, from competitive runners looking for a different type of challenge, to weekend warriors looking for the next great obstacle run, and even those armchair athletes looking to try something fun and new.
The course is approximately 3.1 miles long and incorporates 11+ extreme inflatable obstacles throughout the unique terrain of Kettering Field.
The signature inflatables range in size and complexity, including “Mad House,” where runners climb, weave, and maneuver their way through an intricate and challenging new inflatable, “Jump Around,” a fan favorite and the largest inflatable of its kind with more than 70 feet of bounce pad, and “Finish Line,” where participants dodge wrecking balls, make their way past the tipsy towers, climb the rope ladder, and slide their way to victory.
Beyond the obstacles and the race, the Insane Inflatable 5k will also have a midway with games, food, beverages, merchandise, and swag from local vendors and sponsors.
The event will give a portion of the proceeds from the race to the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life movement. The Relay For Life movement is the world’s largest fundraising event to fight every cancer in every community, with over 6,000 events worldwide.
Registration fees, which include an event T-shirt and medal upon completion, range from $49 for advance registration to $75 for day-of-event registration. Children are welcome to participate, with a minimum height requirement of 42 inches.
