Consider this event a throwback to childhood. The Insane Inflatable 5k Obstacle Race is coming to the Hudson Valley this August at the famous Dutchess County Fairgrounds. Taking place on August 1st and August 2nd, participants will experience 10 bouncy house obstacles, each crazier than the last. Along with the race there will be food vendors (and beer), music, and activities for the whole family.
Let’s Go– The humungous staircase in the starting line.
Levels– This bridge like structure takes you high and long. Bounce around to find the right path and move on to obstacle 3.
Tangled Up– Can you get past this web? Things get tricky in this bouncy house with it’s intricate tubing.
Pure Misery– Pace yourself! This 100 foot structure is inspired by a military course and is not for the faint of heart.
Bumpin Bumpin– Things get shaky in obstacle 5. Climb a 2.5 story wall and dodge bumps placed along the way to move on.
Jump Around– At 70 feet, this structure is what bouncy houses are all about. You’ll be all shook up before you find your way out.
Big Balls– The ball pit of your youth returns in this segment and FYI, these things fly. Get ready for the whackiest version of dodge ball you’ve ever encountered.
S.O.S– With 3 slides and a 2.5 story wall to navigate this structure will have you looking for assistance.
Mattress Run– You won’t sleep through this obstacle. Filled with holes you’ll feel like you’re running through a giant piece of cheese.
Wrecking Ball– Don’t expect to see Ms. Cyrus on this course. These pendulum like devices will be coming for you, so watch out. You’re almost there!
New Finish Line Coming Soon? Rumor has it that the geniuses behind this crazy race are working on a new finish line. All we can say is you better train up!
