The world’s largest inflatable 5K is coming to the East of England Arena on the 31st of October. The 2020 edition now has less running and more obstacles.

You will now tackle 26 gigantic obstacles!

UK Running Events wants to encourage more people to “get out and run” and are back better than ever before, with new bigger and crazier obstacles.

If you loved watching ‘Total Wipeout’ on TV, you’ll relish the chance to pit yourself against the Inflatable 5K’s gigantic obstacles, with fearsome – sounding names like the ‘Temple of Doom, The Mangle, and The Boss’. Watch out for the newest obstacle – ‘The Demon’, which runners will encounter twice.

You don’t have to limit yourself to doing 5K, as you can choose to complete between one (2.5k) and six (15k) laps of the course, so the more laps you do, the more obstacles you have to navigate your way through. When you make it all the way around you’ll be rewarded with a high-quality finisher’s medal, a pair of runners socks, a neck buff and other finish-line goodies!


Our obstacles will be placed inside East of England Arena’s venue, meaning the event will be weather-proof.


Despite their massive size, the event is suitable for participants of all athletic abilities, families, and children are also actively encouraged to take part.

There are group, charity and family discounts available.

The event will of course be conducted in a Covid19 secure manner, and our extensive safety procedures will include staggered starts, hand sanitiser stations (after each obstacle), and wearing face masks.
