5k in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM
March 26, 2018


Attention Albuquerque! Are you looking for a 5k run to participate in? Maybe just looking for something new and exciting to do in the next couple months? Well, we can check both of those off the list with the upcoming Xtreme Air 5K – coming soon to your neck of the woods! On Saturday, March 26th, the Xtreme Air 5k obstacle course race will be the place to be! For everyone who is tired of the conventional, boring 5k run, this is going to be a fun, challenging change of pace. Our custom designed course is comprised of twelve obstacles laid out over several dozen acres of the beautiful Balloon Fiesta Park in Albuquerque, New Mexico, each one just as (or more) challenging than the last! Lockers will also be available if you are worried about where to put your stuff! So what are you waiting for?! Get your friends together and sign up! This will be the most Xtreme Albuquerque 5k run you’ve ever participated in! Get ready to have an Xtreme time! See you there!

Interested in Volunteering?

Be part of the Xtreme team! Our courses require a lot of man power to run smoothly and we couldn’t do it without our volunteers. Not only will you gain entry into a race (and get a cool T-shirt), but volunteering at one of our events is a great way to take care of community service hours or support family and friends participating in the event.

Registration Fees

If you still haven’t registered for the race, don’t worry! Together with our partners at Active, registration is just a couple clicks away. Click on one of the sign-up buttons you see below and pick your preferred wave. After that, it’s easy! Just like any other online order form, we’ll need your basic contact and payment information. Online registration closes at midnight the day before the race on March 25th. The most popular waves tend to sell out the quickest, so make sure to register as soon as you can so you can run with your friends (and so you don’t have to run earlier than you want!). As you can see below, the longer you wait to sign up, the more it costs, so make sure to sign up today! What if your preferred wave sells out? No worries! You can purchase an all access pass that will let you run in any wave, regardless if it is sold out.

Once you do register and race day rolls around, we suggest you pick up your race packet on the day before the race, Friday, March 25, 2016. If you don’t, we also suggest arriving an hour before your wave to ensure you have enough time to park, register, sign your waiver, and locate your locker. Planning on picking up your packet on the Friday before race day? Great! But you should still arrive early to get everything done and not be rushed. This is, after all, a day to enjoy! The Xtreme Air 5K obstacle course race is an excellent way for you and your friends and family to not only enjoy yourself, but challenge yourself in a new and exciting way. See you out there!
