This Saturday (July 30th), is the date for the 2016 Insane Inflatable 5K - presented by Mosquito Squad of Greater Lansing.

As it was last year, this year's 5K will be at the Hope Sports Soccer Complex at 5801 N Aurelius Rd. Runners will leave in waves every 30 minutes, starting at 8:30AM, with the last one leaving at 11AM. Some are sold out, HOWEVER, the 8:30 and 9AM waves still have spots left and you can still get an All Access pass that allows you to go in any wave.

And now, for the benefit of you and our corporate team, here are some ideas that I think would add to the fun of future Insane Inflatable 5Ks:

1. Hot air or helium filled obstacles:

2. For an added premium price - an "Edge of Space" Inflatable:

3. An "airhead" mascot named "Inflatable Ivan". Already proven to be fun in the NBA:

Thank you for your consideration. See you Saturday.
