Bounce Into Autumn
The Inflatable 5K series is heading to Manchester this September...
Release your inner child and bounce your way to Greater Manchester’s Ashley Hall Showground for the north of England’s only Inflatable 5K event. Scheduled for Saturday 4 September, organisers are promising something ‘bigger, bouncier and better than ever!’
Now with 28 humongous obstacles including new additions 'Oh! Balls!' and 'The Demon', there is plenty of fun to be had at the event which, despite its name, offers 2.5K, 5K, 10K and 15K distances. If you're up for a real challenge, the word is that the new 2.5km lap course means, less running and more obstacles!
Speaking of the series, an insider said: "These events may cause participants a great deal of fun, excitement and even in most cases laughter!"
And highlighting what a great day out the event is for the whole family, a previous entrant commented: "Absolutely loved it!! My husband and son joined me in this run and we all had a fantastic time."
If bouncing on giant inflatables sparks memories of childhood then, new for 2021, the 'Foam Zone' will perhaps invoke memories of the student union! In this 'sud-soaked' setting runners will have to battle their way through a massive foam zone, powered by the world's largest foam cannon. Sadly, a pint of Snakebite & Black will not be supplied to aid your endeavour!
Those taking part will however be rewarded with a special finishers' medal, neck buff, socks and certificate.
