Insanely ‘fun’ obstacle race comes to Cloverdale

The Cloverdale Fairgrounds to host Insane Inflatable 5K in October

A non-competitive sporting event called the Insane Inflatable 5K is coming to Cloverdale early this Autumn.

Billed as the most “fun, wild and insane obstacle run in the world,” the event is slated for Oct. 1 at the Cloverdale Fairgrounds.

In the Insane Inflatable 5K, participants slide, bounce, climb and run through a course filled with giant, inflatable obstacles like the slingshot, waverunner, mad house and the mattress run. Picture a bouncy castle run amok.

Organizers are urging participants to register now. Prices start at a $59 early bird admission (until July 15), and rises to $89 on the event day. There’s also a $125 all access pass allowing participants to take part at any wave time (every 15 minutes starting at 8:30 a.m.).

Team registration is available, and costumes are encouraged.

There’s no minimum age, however note there is a minimum height requirement: 42 inches tall (3.5 feet), or 108 cm.
