Medieval Road Race with Castle-Style Inflatable Arch Finish Line

Inflatable Castle ArchwayMedieval Inflatable Arch: For Road Races and Beyond

We really get a kick out of all the different themed road races we’ve seen lately. It seems to be a new trend that (hopefully) will continue. The Running Zone Foundation thought of a clever twist: take the race back in time.

The Castle for Excalibur 10 Miler encouraged participants to dress in medieval period costumes for the event. They would then trek 10 miles in and around Viera, Florida, before crossing the inflatable finish line and completing the quest for Excalibur.

That’s certainly one purpose for their arch; however, the uses go far beyond road races. The Running Zone Foundation (a 501(c)(3) organization) promotes and encourages health and fitness in their community through running, jogging, walking and related educational programs and publications. They could easily use their arch when exhibiting at health fairs or festivals, for foundation parties or open houses, at fundraising drives and lots of other occasions.

Add a few sponsor banners and they can turn their marketing expense into a revenue-producing tool. Like these ideas? We’re full of them.Give us a call to discuss your project.

"Our tunnel was also a great addition to our pre-game tradition: the Wildcat walk. Our city shuts down three blocks of downtown, and we have hundreds of fans lining the streets with a police escort, while we walk to the stadium."

- Sam Baker, Head Football Coach at Waconia High School

"We are able to directly track customer traffic caused by the boot, so we know the inflatable boot paid for itself within the first year."
