The Great Inflatable Race

The Great Inflatable Race is the wackiest, craziest, and bounciest fun run with inflatable obstacles spread out throughout the running course. The Great Inflatable Race is the first and original all inflatable obstacle fun run that uses giant inflatables spread throughout the running course. You'll start the race climbing one of our inflatables and then race your friends and family to the next inflatable obstacle. This bouncy course contains between 8-10 massive inflatables that will bounce, bump and slide you all over the place! You'll finish the race with a perfect photo op on our final inflatable, and after a nice refreshing drink, you can check out our awesome Inflatable Village. Check out our Inflatable Village page to see what the after party is all about! Our inflatables are one of a kind, and your whole family will enjoy this amazing run. Bring your kids and feel like a kid again yourself. Join us at The Great Inflatable Race!
