Wild Air Run brings a brand new alternative to the phenomenon of 5k races.

Wild Air Run is a dynamic fun run that will feature 10 giant inflatable obstacles as part of a 5k course, including Europe’s biggest inflatable slide. This is the first time an event like this will take place in Ireland. The initial event will happen in Cabinteely Park on 1st – 3rd July 2016. 

The Wild Air Run can be undertaken by all fitness levels and the focus is on fun, not endurance. It can be undertaken by the fitness fanatic right through to the armchair athlete and everyone in between. The 10 obstacles combine agility, creativity and a vast amount of fun. The course is suitable for people of all fitness levels above the age of seven. 

Begin the race by tackling the staircase start-line, zig-zag through the maze and have a ball in the giant ball pit. Before you can claim victory over the Wild Air Run you will finish with Europe’s longest slide. There will also be a ‘Chill Zone’, an area for both participants and spectators to relax and enjoy music, games and food and drink from local vendors. Brand Ambassador Suzanne Gray said “An event like Wild Air Run is fantastic, it encourages people that wouldn't usually take part in fitness events to try something new with their family and friends, regardless of their fitness level and it's an innovative event we can all enjoy.”

The Cabinteely Park event will kick off its first wave at 10:00a.m, with additional waves running in 20-minute intervals until 8:20p.m. The event day is broken down into three sessions, the family only session (10:00-11:40), the open session (12:00-19:40) and the adult only session (20:00-20:20). Further events see Wild Air Run setting up in in Fota House Cork from 8th – 10th July, Malahide Castle 22nd – 24th July and Marlay Park from 12th – 17th August, with other cities announced soon.
