Because the obstacle-course industry has become big business — national participation grew from 50,000 people in 2010 to 3 million in 2013 — it figures more would follow from events like the Spartan Race and Tough Mudder.

Thus cometh the Insane Inflatable 5K, a 3.1-mile course incorporating some 11 inflatable obstacles, to Falcon Stadium on May 9.
The 11+ obstacles combine imagination, creativity, and most importantly a large dose of fun, coupled with a touch of insanity. The signature inflatables (including five new obstacles added for 2015!) range in size and complexity, including “Pure Misery,” a 100-foot obstacle testing strength, agility, flexibility, and endurance, “Jump Around,” the largest inflatable of its kind with more than 70 feet of bounce pad, and “Vertigo,” the most awe-inspiring inflatable of the event where participants climb to the top of the steepest slide in the industry (at 6 stories tall) and slide down to finish the race and claim their medals.
There will also be a "Midway" section where people can eat, drink, and buy stuff. As of now, organizers are charging $54 to run the untimed, all-ages course, but that increases to $75 on race day. A portion of proceeds benefit the National Mill Dog Rescue.
