There adventure race scene keeps innovating. The latest race is coming to Denver on May 31 at Dicks Sporting Goods Park. It’s called the Insane Inflatable 5k that– as you guessed– is made up of inflatable obstacles. It will hit 16 cities overall. The race is for everyone from runners coming out with the eye of the tiger to more chill groups that want to take it an easy pace.
When it comes to the obstacles, expect 12 in all. “Pure Misery” is a 100 foot long obstacle testing strength, agility, flexibility and endurance, “Jump Around” is the largest inflatable of its kind with more than 70 feet of bouncing. “Crazy Air” is the steepest slide in the industry– slide down, and catch air off the lip at the bottom which launches up and out, ultimately landing on an inflatable pad.
For racers under 14 there is a ½-mile long Junior Bouncers course.
A portion of the proceeds from the race to The Dumb Friends League of Denver, the largest community-based animal welfare organization in the Rocky Mountain region.
Registration fees: $75 for advance registration, $85 for day of. Junior Bouncers can register for $15. Each event will give back to the community, in which it is held, designating a portion of the proceeds of each local race to a non-profit organization. The race will not be timed- participants will start in waves that begin at 9:00 a.m., and run every half-hour until 1:30p.m. There will be two starting times for the kids’ course at 10:15 a.m. and 1:15 p.m.
