What’s better than a typical 5k in Pittsburgh? A bouncy, fun-for-the-whole-family 5k extravaganza!
Hello, Pittsburgh! Guess who’s boppin’ through your town in the most epic 5k in Pittsburgh this year? The XtremeAIR 5k, an inflatable obstacle course that is fun for entire family is coming October 1st!

XtremeAIR 5k prides itself on hosting a fun run that is just that – a run that is FUN! This wild, bouncy race features huge inflatable obstacles that will unleash everyone’s inner child. Each obstacle is unique, and packs a big punch!
So, you’re skeptical of joining. Maybe it’s been a long time since you’ve run a 5k. Maybe you’ve never run a 5k. Fear not non-runners, this race isn’t geared towards top athletes. It’s made for anyone that wants to feel the healthy benefits of a 5k run but might not be the most athletically experienced. Those who need a break during the race are encouraged to walk between obstacles, skip any that seem too daunting, and catch their breath (and the view) at the top of an obstacle.
This 5k in Pittsburgh really is like none other! 12 obstacles in bright, bold colors stretch across the 5k course and are ready to take on even the toughest athlete. But don’t be fooled; each bounce house has a different layout and challenges each part of the body in different ways. So whether you’ve been running 5ks for years or it’s your first time, this 5k in Pittsburgh is for you. You will experience the ultimate cardio workout while laughing it up with your best friends and family.
Here’s what to expect on race day: as you approach the South Park Fairgrounds Complex on the morning of October 1, 2016, you’ll feast your eyes on an assortment of massive inflatable obstacles. Directions to the event can be found here. To save time the morning of the race, you may pick up your race packet the day before the event at the allocated packet pick-up location (found on the event page). After you parked and checked in, it’s time to scoped out the course. The first obstacle, Game On, is a warm-up, preparing you for what lies ahead. Then you get to The Cliffhanger, where you will take your warm-up to the next level, climbing a steep slope up and then back down down as you bounce onto your next obstacle, I’m Tired, which is pretty self-explanatory. When you hop over to The Maize, you will be in for a special treat. Just don’t get lost! Lateral Damage will have you ducking, diving, and crawling through tight holes and large tubes. And just when you think you’ve had enough, The Beast will give a run for your money!
