Stunt Run Announces Events, Locations
9 Feb, 2015
The ThrillSeeker 5K Stunt Run, presented by Guardian Angel Council, has announced the dates and locations on its adrenaline-packed nationwide tour. Developed by Hollywood stunt producers, the Stunt Run is a unique obstacle run geared towards anyone looking for a thrill. Participants can expect ultra-premium stunts including the world’s largest inflatable water slide featuring a mega-ramp jump-finish, the giant stunt trike rally, pole vault, stuntman free fall and eight other incredible stunts.
The brainchild of a creator of action sports entertainment and TV’s top rated stunt shows, Nitro Circus and Thrillbillies, the Stunt Run brings extreme thrills to the masses in a safe, fun environment. A portion of the proceeds from the event benefit Be The Match®, the nation’s largest and most diverse bone marrow registry that matches patients with life-saving donors and provides support through the transplant process. Be The Match® will be on-site for participants wanting to join the registry.
A full list of locations and dates for the event can be found here.
Event Highlights: Heavily focused on safety, the ThrillSeeker 5K Stunt Run showcases advanced stunt rigging, airbags, and inflatables granting broader access to a bolder form of obstacles not limited by mud, electric shock, cold, extreme fitness, or trending gimmicks found in other running events. With ever more-extreme stunts popularized on the Internet and TV, the Stunt Run is designed to bridge the gap between safety and adrenaline. Events may feature a family-friendly kid’s 1K Stunt Run (ages 6-12), and more.
About ThrillSeeker Stunt Run: The ThrillSeeker Stunt Run is a one-of-a-kind course designed by Hollywood stunt producers. Produced by a creator of Nitro Circus and Thrillbillies, the run includes over a dozen stunts, giving participants the opportunity to experience “as seen on TV” challenges in a fun environment with friends and family.
About Guardian Angel Council: Guardian Angel Council (GAC) is a 501(c)(3) that exists to create awareness for the National Bone Marrow Donor Program, specifically through the Be The Match® Registry. There is an ever-growing need for marrow donors, as there is a 1-in-4 chance of having a sibling be a match, and about 70% of patients in need of a transplant do not have a suitable donor in their family. GAC pays special attention to increasing minority participation in the registry - minorities make up only 30% of potential donors, and patients are more likely to find that life-saving match from donors of their own ethnic background.
