    Back 2 The Trenches

    "We are extremely pleased with our inflatable arch that we purchased from Race Arches UK .It created a great atmosphere at the start of our races and it helped to create the perfect finishing line for all our participants after hard muddy race. We can also use it as an effective marketing tool for our brand, it inflates & deflates easily with minimum effort and minimum staff. The whole process from design to the finished product was seamless; we would highly recommend using Race Arches Uk."

    The Fix Events

    I have had my 8m arch for a few years now and im very satisfied with it.
    Its very easy to erect at each event, easy to carry and easy to store.
    It cleans well, and has been well used over the years and is still in good condition.
    I had velcro added on the legs of my arch so I can add sponsors logos if I require and an additional hanging banner under the arch with eyelets.
    I feel it really adds a professional look to our events at The Fix UK and I would recommend Race Arches UK to anybody for customer service and quality products at a good price.
    Ive also just had my second arch delivered from them, so they must be good!
