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. The Great Inflatable Race is the original all-inflatable fun run! 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 tickets and require a separate purchase.
The Great Inflatable Race's courses vary between 1.5 miles and a 5k (3 .1 miles). The average length is 2 miles and has 8-10 inflatables spread out within that distance! 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! While we recommend that only kids 5 and up participate, we figure you'll know what your kids can handle best!

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. If you would like a t-shirt, medal, etc. for your 3 year old, you can 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. 
We'd love to have you join us, but we aren't licensed health professionals. We strongly suggest that you ask your doctor before participating!

You want a refund? 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.

*Prices are subject to sales and applicable discounts. No refunds, price adjustments, or reimbursements will be made after purchase in accordance with our No Refund Policy. Ticket prices do not include processing and convenience fees.

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, price adjustments, or reimbursements will be made after purchase in accordance to our No Refund Policy. Ticket prices do not include processing and convenience fees. Price are also subject to change at anytime without announcements or deadlines.

The purpose of this fee is to enhance participant safety, control wave capacity, and improve the flow of the event.  When a wave time is popular and filling up with more people, the size of that wave is controlled by the fact that the price of that wave increases.   

If you'd like to avoid the wave selection fee you may select a less popular wave. 

Another way to save would be to get a few friends to sign up with you and purchase the 3+ discounted tickets.

No matter what wave you choose, we know you'll have a great time!  Thanks for joining us.

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.

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.

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 for free 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. 

**Every race is a little different, so please check the "What's Included" section on your race location's event page to confirm what is in your race packet.

Of course! We just ask that you don't wear shoes that could possibly damage or tear the inflatables. Cleats, pointy shoes, and shoes with a lot of grip/edges are not permitted.

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 and require a separate purchase.
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/Merchandise 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. 
Yes! We will have a bag drop available for $2 per bag. 
Nope, sorry. Our races are pet free. We love our furry friends, but they have to stay at home. It's just to ensure their safety, and the safety of all participants!
We will always have at least two water stops on our courses. Typically one at the halfway point and one at the finish line. If it's a hot day or you require additional water, we HIGHLY recommend bringing your own water.
