If you prefer to do your running on, around and through inflatable structures originally created for children, there’s an event coming up in August that’s perfect for you.

Just like the Color Run or the Night Nation Run, we now have another 5K option: The “Insane Inflatable 5K,” a 3.1-mile run in Philadelphia that features a series of inflatable obstacles, including giant slides, a “ball maze,” a blow-up wall and bunch of other odd inflatable objects.

Here’s a video of what that actually looks like:

The Insane Inflatable 5K, a nationwide race with more than 120 tour stops in 2017, is coming to Philly on Aug. 5 and starting at Citizen’s Bank Park. Registration is $49 for general admission (a price that increases May 26), or you can snag an “all-access pass” for $100, which includes perks like “unlimited wave entry” and a $20 merchandise credit.

In addition to the course, there will also be a “midway” and post-race celebration that will feature more inflatables, games, DJs, food trucks and, yes, beer.

Tickets are on sale now. Good luck not twisting an ankle.
