What a Day at The Inflatable Run & Festival Looks Like
When you arrive at The Inflatable Run & Festival, you won’t have to wait in the registration line because your items were sent directly to your door. So you stroll through the entry gate; you look around at all the inflatable attractions, and decide to start with your first 1-mile lap on the inflatable obstacle course. You head to the start line, and after a massive countdown, begin your run with your entire family. You make sure to high-five the MC as you leave the starting gate. You navigate each inflatable obstacle station like a champ, and your favorite is the slide at the end! Once you finish your lap, you decide to o enjoy some of the festival before you do your next lap. Although your kids are ready to do the next lap already, you’re not quite ready, so you check the schedule on the Facebook Event page and see that it’s almost time for the EPIC Water Battle. You rush to the battle area and enter it, not really knowing what to expect. What is a water battle?…

Instead of a typical 5K course, our course is only 1 mile long and each runner will be able to do three laps around the inflatable obstacle course (3 laps = 5K). There are three obstacle stations, each with three kid-friendly obstacles to choose from. The 5k takes place on paved roads. The course is not on dirt or grass due to the large number of strollers, which can not navigate on grass/dirt. You can choose a different obstacle each lap, or stick with your favorites! Please note that these are kid-friendly obstacles, to accommodate kids of all ages, so they are no larger than 13 feet high. There are also two water stations, so you are never more than half a mile from water.
