Community Medical Center to Sponsor the Jersey Shore Insane Inflatable 5k
It's more than just a race, it's a dance party! The Insane Inflatable 5k, a unique, dynamic and extreme inflatable obstacle race is coming to the Jersey Shore. This crazy obstacle run, sponsored by Community Medical Center, a Barnabas Health facility, will make its way to the Seaside Park Beach in Seaside Park on Saturday, September 6.
Start times for the 5k will be set in waves, the first starting at 8:30 a.m. and the last at 1 p.m. Adults who register early can save with reduced registration fees - $54 until August 15 and $59 until September 5. Registration on event day will be $75. Junior Bouncer registration fees are $20. The Junior Bouncer race consists of a half-mile course with two start times, 10:15 a.m. and 1:15 p.m.
The Insane Inflatable 5k features both mixed terrain and trail running. The event is not timed and participants are not obligated to attempt or complete any obstacle. Participants of the 5k are encouraged to form teams and "go insane" with their costumes. The largest team of the race will be featured on the Insane Inflatable 5k Facebook page.
Race participants and attendees are invited to stop by Community Medical Center's tent for bananas and water after the race, as well as health information and lots of giveaways.
"This sponsorship is especially exciting for us as we always strive to help people achieve ultimate health and wellness. This event encourages just that – in a fun and unique way!" said Stephanie L. Bloom, FACHE, President and Chief Executive Officer, Community Medical Center.
Proceeds from the 5k will benefit Hometown Heroes, a local non-profit organization that has supported the local community through the Restore the Shore campaign, as well as providing assistance for individuals facing homelessness, domestic abuse, drug addiction, disability and more.
