At the Insane Inflatable 5K it’s not all about running, what we care about most is you having a #CrazyFun day. Just show up ready to make some #CrazyFun memories with your friends and family, we’ll do the rest.

Mutts on the Mountain 5K and Fun Run
Day: Saturday, October 1, 2016
Time: 8am - 5pm
Location: Blue Mountain Reservation in Peekskill, NY
The 1st Annual Mutts on the Mountain 5K and Lazy Dog Fun Run is the only timed trail race (of any length) in the Tri-State area that allows you to run with your canine companion. This is a not-to-be-missed event for hikers, joggers, runners, and of course your well-behaved four legged friend. Consisting of 3.1 miles of technical single track, this course will keep trail runners on their toes and keep those running with their canine companion focused on the what waits around the bend. This world class course features several steep climbs, water crossings, two rock scrambles, nearly 500 feet of elevation gain, and ruff terrain. You’ll find an aid station (water and Gatorade for human participants, and water for canine participants) 1.6 miles into the course, and a “H2O cool off station” (for canine participants) 2.1 miles into the course. We strongly encourage human participants who don’t have a canine companion to participate in this course (we will have three waves, the first being for dog-less participants).

The Lazy Dog Fun Run is a 1-mile romp consisting of 75% double track and 25% paved surfaces, scattered with obstacles for you and your canine companion to conquer. This course is perfect for small dogs and older dogs who want to participate in a race, but can’t handle the ruff terrain that the 5K course offers. You’ll be able to explore a portion of Blue Mountain’s extensive trail system while taking in constant views of the lake. This race option is for human participants with canine companions only due to course width constraints.
