Our Frequently Asked Questions May Help.

The Great Inflatable Race or TGIR (pronounced: tigger) as we call it, is an obstacle fun run where you make your way through a series of giant inflatable obstacles spread throughout the race course. This fun but challenging race will not only leave you smiling but sweating as well!
The Inflatable Village is an area separate from the race course that contains additional inflatables and activities for you to try as many times as you'd like! The Inflatable Village adds even more bounce to your step after you complete The Great Inflatable Race. 

*The Inflatable Village is not included in Regular Registration packages. Access to the Inflatable Village can be purchased through our VIP Registration or at the event. 
TGIR race courses vary between 1 miles and a 5k. The exact length of the course varies by location and is not set until after the venue inspection (dates TBD). 
TGIR is an all-ages event. If you're a kid, an adult, or halfway in between, then you can join us for tons of fun!

Prices are the same for ages 4+. Children 3 and under may participate in the race free of charge after having a parent or guardian sign the participant waiver. Participant waivers are available on your race location's web page and must be turned in to event staff before the kids can participate in The Great Inflatable Race. You do NOT need to register your 3 year old to take them through the course with you. However, if you would like a t-shirt, medal, etc. for your 3 year old, you will have to purchase a regular priced ticket for them and register them with your family, or buy them at the event. 
We would LOVE for you to volunteer with us! It takes a lot to make sure that the event runs smoothly. We promise that we won't make you blow up the inflatables all by yourself! 

If you are signing up a group to volunteer, do not use the comment box to tell us how many people are in your group. Each member's information must be entered separately to be assigned to a volunteer shift. If you have questions about volunteering or registering a group, email us at
Click the button for the ticket you'd like to purchase (Regular or VIP). You will be redirected to a race registration form. Enter your Daily Deal code in the promo code box and click "apply." Make sure that your code was successfully applied before purchasing your race ticket. 

If your code doesn't apply correctly, contact us before purchasing your ticket, and we will assist you with your registration. 
See that "REGISTER NOW!" button at the top of the page? Give it a nice click to find the city you wish to register. Pick Regular Registration or VIP Registration and click "REGISTER NOW!" You will be redirected to a registration form that you need to fill out, and bing, bang, boom! You'll be registered for the bounciest race around!
You want a refund? Are you crazy? You don't want to miss out on this crazy fun event! 

Unfortunately, we are unable to process refunds.  When you sign up you agree to our NO REFUND policy.  The planning and logistics required for putting on the event make it impossible.  Location and date are subject to change.  We do our best to keep the original date and location; however, some venues may cancel our city permits, and regulations may make it necessary to change the original date and location.  If you can't make it on Race Day, feel free to come to Packet Pickup to get your race packet and say hi!  For a small fee, we can also ship you your race packet.  Email us at if you would like your packet shipped to you.
Typically, the earlier you register for the race, the more you will save! Visit our locations page for current pricing in your city. 

*Prices are subject to sales and applicable discounts. No refunds or reimbursements will be made after purchase in accordance to our No Refund Policy. Ticket prices do not include processing and convenience fees.
Wave times pricing is based off popularity and capacity. When a wave time is popular and filling up with more people the price of that wave increases. This helps to control wave capacity and flow of the event. 
We can assist you with transferring your tickets to another person or race location! There is a $5 per transfer fee, so please try to get all correct information before signing up! Transferring to a new wave time will depend on availability and any applicable fees. 

No worries! We've got you covered! Head to the link below and enter in the email address you signed up with!

We're so glad you asked!

Our Top Team is the team with the most registered participants in every city. The Top Team gets additional benefits leading up to race day and at the event, including: recognition on social media, announcements at the race, a Top Team tent to cool off under, and more!

The Top Team must have a minimum of 15 participants on the team, and only one Top Team will be chosen at every race. 

Unfortunately, we are unable to change your team name or add you to an already created team once you have completed registration. 
We offer 3 ways for your to get your race packet!

Packet Pickup: 
You can pick up your packet for free on Packet Pickup Day, typically held the Friday before Race Day from 1-7 PM. The location will be announced in our Inflatable Info email approximately 1-2 weeks before the race. Also, you will receive a $5 merchandise credit to use on TGIR swag if you come to Packet Pickup!

Packet Shipping: 
If you hate waiting in lines and don't want to come to Packet Pickup, we have a special offer for you! You can have your race packet shipped right to your home for $8.88. This option is available upon registration and closes 3 weeks prior to the race so that we can ship your packets to you. Your packets will arrive approximately 1 week before Race Day. 

Race Day Pickup: 
If you cannot attend Packet Pickup and you do not want your packet shipped to you, you can still pick up your race packet on Race Day. We recommend arriving 30 minutes prior to your wave time to ensure that you collect your race packet in time to run the greatest obstacle run you'll ever do!
Absolutely! If you need someone else to pick up your race packet, make sure they have your race ticket or a Packet Pickup Permission Slip. 

The Packet Pickup Permission Slip can be found at the end of our Inflatable Info. Inflatable Info emails are sent 1-2 weeks prior to the race. You can also find the Packet Pickup Permission Slip on your race page. 
Regular Registration race packets include your race T-shirt, a temporary tattoo and a wristband. 

VIP Registration race packets include everything in a Regular Registration packet PLUS a sweatband, a fanny pack and access into the Inflatable Village!

What's the Inflatable Village you ask? It's additional inflatable fun, separate from the race course. Play in our bouncy house and attempt your skill on our famous Big Baller inflatable! There are these and so much more fun activities for you to try! 
Of course! We just ask that you don't wear shoes that could possibly damage or tear the inflatables. Please make sure that your shoes do not have cleats, jagged or sharp bottoms or toes. 

You may also run barefoot if you are more comfortable running without shoes. 
Our race is a rain or shine event. We're like postmen here at TGIR. No rain, nor sleet, nor snow will keep us from partying hard and running like crazy!
None of our waves are timed or competitive. However, you can create your own competition with your family, friends and/or race team! Nothing is better than zipping down our slides and passing your friends on the way to the finish line. 
TGIR contains 8-10 inflatable obstacles set up throughout the race course. The obstacles are family friendly and can be done by just about anyone. 

Be sure to check out our Inflatable Village for more bouncy fun after the race. Inflatable Village passes are not included in Regular Registration. You can gain access to the Inflatable Village by purchasing VIP Registration or by purchasing Inflatable Village passes at the race. 
Yes, we suggest that anyone over 300 lbs refrain from running the race. This rule is for the safety of all of our participants and equipment.
Absolutely! Come hang out, listen to music and take pictures of your friends bouncing around. The best part is that you can spectate to your heart's content for FREE! 

You can also purchase passes to our Inflatable Village, even if you didn't run the race. Passes will be available at the Registration Tent. 
We will occasionally have professional and volunteer photographers at our events. Directions on how to get your pictures will be posted on our Facebook event page when available.

Often times, the photographers at our events come from local schools, newspapers, etc. In those cases, we regret that we typically do not have access to those photos.
It varies depending on the location! The Inflatable Village is typically open a half hour before the first wave, and it closes one hour after the final wave.
