Insane Inflatable 5K
April 25, 2015 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm
The Insane Inflatable 5K, a new, dynamic fun run series made up of inflatable obstacles and taking place in over 70 cities across the United States, is coming to TUSCALOOSA, AL on APRIL 25th 2015.
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 miles long and incorporates 11+ extreme inflatable obstacles throughout the unique terrain of Griffin Farms Pumpkin Patch.
The 11+ obstacles combine imagination, creativity, and most importantly a large dose of fun, coupled with a touch of insanity. The signature inflatables (including five new obstacles added for 2015!) range in size and complexity, including “Pure Misery,” a 100-‐ foot obstacle testing strength, agility, flexibility, and endurance, “Jump Around,” the largest inflatable of its kind with more than 70 feet of bounce pad, and “Vertigo,” the most awe-‐inspiring inflatable of the event where participants climb to the top of the steepest slide in the industry (at 6 stories tall) and slide down to finish the race and claim their medals.
In the discount field, enter MCDONALD (case sensitive) and Insane Inflatable will donate $5 to RMHCA.
Beyond the obstacles and the race, the Insane Inflatable 5k will also have a “Midway” where participants can enjoy games, food, beverages, merchandise, and swag from local vendors and sponsors. Additionally, the event will give back to the community, designating a portion of the proceeds from the race to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Alabama. The Tuscaloosa event, taking place at the Griffin Farms Pumpkin Patch on Saturday, April 25th,2015 will kick off at 9:00 a.m. with the first wave, and additional waves will run concurrently until 1:00 p.m.
“We are very excited to bring the fastest growing 5K fun run to Tuscaloosa,” said Mr. Kaul. “This is a great event with something for everyone – families and friends alike – with the biggest takeaway being a few hours of healthy fun and camaraderie.”
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 suggested minimum age of 8 years old and a minimum height requirement of 42”.
