The Great Inflatable Race is the bounciest fun run on earth! At The Great Inflatable Race, participants climb, slide and bounce on inflatable obstacles that are spread throughout the race course. And this year, The Great Inflatable Race is partnering with Crisis Services for their Buffalo race on Saturday, July 14th! A portion of the race proceeds goes to benefiting Crisis Services, so get all of your friends and family to sign up for the race using promo code CRISIS!
We are also looking for A LOT of volunteers to help out; specifically at Packet Pickup on Friday, July 13, 2018, and Race Day Registration on Saturday, July 14, 2018. But there are plenty of other shifts that you can sign up for too; see the full list volunteer shift descriptions below. Volunteers must be 18 or older. Volunteers who are ages 16-17 can volunteer as long as a supervising adult is volunteering for the same shift.
