Make Memories To Last A Lifetime

From start to finish the Insane Inflatable 5K is like nothing you’ve ever experienced before. When we say INSANE, we mean it. As one of our participants said, “When you drive up and see the enormosity of the inflatables it’s crazy.” That’s what we were going for!

At the Insane Inflatable 5K it’s not all about running, what we care about most is you having a #CrazyFun day. Just show up ready to make some #CrazyFun memories with your friends and family, we’ll do the rest. When it’s time to take on our GIANT inflatables, feel free to be a kid again; you’ll laugh until you cry! Afterwards take a load off, crack open a cold beverage and reminisce in our Midway.
