Did the 2.5k in 2022
Some of the inflatables were close together we would have liked them spaced out more.

Great laugh and well organised

The entrance to the car park seemed very bad upon arrival as it was on the corner of a junction with three directions having cars that wanted to enter the field and people leaving the event trying to get by the entrance to get to the junction. Felt a little dangerous and like traffic was going to be frustrated into doing dangerous manouvers. Got bib numbers the week after the run. Seems a little bit of a waste for so many bib numbers to be sent that weren't going to be used. There was no extra info in the letter so I think it could save costs to either send via email so people can print out or have available on the day.I also don't know why car parking charges cannot be absorbed into the initial price of the run as none of the events seem to be accessible by public transport. The advice for long sleeves was not great given the temperature on the day.I do think at the end too many people were in the last inflatable at once so couldn't do a full run of it which meant i couldn't race against my friend to the finish. The other obstacles were better managed when lots of people headed to them.Overall I think other than a couple of participants who wanted to rush through (one I nearly stood on their hand by accident as they were trying to get by me) everyone was really awesome and having a great time.

I have been to the Inflatable 5k in London a few years back and I feel the event has dipped in quality. It seems as though they are extorting more and more money wherever possible from us, the consumer. The base price of the run alone is £37, you could pay extra to choose your start time, there's a booking fee, parking is separate, bag holding is another cost and right as you are about to pay, they throw pointless merchandise in your face. Why? Also compared to a small hamper of snacks and freebies at the end of the race, all we receive is a medal, neckscarf/bandana and socks. The event is reaching the point it is not good value for money. I'm not sure I would attend again.
Did the 2.5k in 2022
Great fun! It was a lovely day out and really well put together. We did the course as father (5km) and son (2.5km) and it worked really nicely. Highly recommended for anyone, but especially for those who aren't necessarily sure about a running event - it's super inclusive, really easy to engage with, loads of fun, and people were taking the course at very much their own pace throughout. Thanks for a great day!

I did the course with my 6 year old son. It was such a brilliant experience for us both, and the early slots were quiet so I felt confident that my son was not at risk of being knocked over by other runners.
Did the 2.5k in 2022
It was our first mother - daughter competition and we loved it. We definitely want to come to the next one.
Did the 5k in 2022
I really enjoyed the event as we were 4 adults and 4 kids. I think paying £5 for parking was a bit steep for a couple of hours. But loved the fun run and staff were friendly. Would recommend to our friends.
Did the 5k in 2022
Very fun day out for all ages
Did the 2.5k in 2022
