How It Works

What Is The Great Inflatable Race?

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!

When you join The Great Inflatable Race, you are joining a community, a movement. We want you to bring all of your friends and family so that you can enjoy this experience together! You'll share fond memories, laugh until it hurts and take that amazing pic of your friend tumbling down one of our inflatable slides. Not only that, but you will be a part of an event that brings your local community together. You can feel good knowing that by participating in The Great Inflatable Race you are supporting local charities and businesses and your community as a whole. 


The Great Inflatable Race partners with local charities in each of our race locations. We have partnered with organizations like Special Olympics, Girls On The Run, local food pantries and many others! The Great Inflatable Race donates a portion of our proceeds to each charity partner, and we also raise awareness of the charity's mission, goals and needs. We are grateful to our charity partners for all of their hard work in making our events successful and fun. We could not do what we do without them!

The Great Inflatable Race provides advertising and vending opportunities for local businesses. Food trucks are popular vendors with our participants. Runners love to grab some food after the race to refuel for the Inflatable Village!

Our races attract a lot of young women, millennials and families. This is a great advertising opportunity for local sports stores, dentists, chiropractors, restaurants, you name it!
