On Tuesday morning, the hosts of the morning news program 'Fox and Friends' tackled one of the Insane Inflatable 5K's marquee obstacles, Pure Misery. The 5K made its debut earlier this year, and the craze has quickly spread from coast to coast, drawing national attention.

Outside the Fox News studios in Manhattan, Steve Doocy, Elizabeth Hasselbeck, Brian Kilmeade and Maria Molina raced through the rain-slicked series of challenges as a way to celebrate the first anniversary of Hasselbeck's debut on the program last year.

The Insane Inflatable 5K isn't your ordinary 5K race. It's entirely made up of giant inflatable obstacles, eleven in all, and is geared toward group participation. The race is not timed as it is more about having a great time with friends, family and co-workers. It's a fun way to both get a nice workout and do some good old-fashioned group bonding with plenty of laughs along the way.

Here's a look at Pure Misery:
