It's not just a 5K run. It's a whole bunch of fun set up on the University of Montana campus on a 5-kilometer course.

May 2nd is the day for the course to be active with different "waves" throughout the day. You don't have to start early in the morning. In fact, the KLYQ 1240 AM wave is the final wave, scheduled for 1 p.m.

Some people will be trying to "beat the clock," but I'm thinking a bunch of runners will be in for the fun and the smiles. The names of the 11 obstacles might give you an idea of what's in store. some sample names - Tangled Up, Big Balls, Mattress Run and Vertigo. You can get a better idea of the obstacles on the website.

The inflatable race started about a year ago and it has been touring the country. Missoula is the first place in Montana to have the course. And we thank Karl Tyler Chevrolet for helping sponsor the fun. By the way, donations will be going to Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Missoula.

You need to register yourself or your team right away. And it's easy to do at our Insane Inflatables 5K website.
