May 31 Insane Inflatable 5K 
If you’re not quite up for Warrior Dash, Tough Mudder, or one of the other many “extreme” races, but still want the fun and camaraderie that comes with an obstacle course event, the Insane Inflatable 5K might be for you. The untimed run, held at Dick’s Sporting Good Park, includes 12 obstacles over the course of the three-mile run from dodging giant balls rolled at you to careening down a steep inflatable slide, catching air, and landing on a giant inflatable pad.
