Baton Rouge, LA
April 2, 2016
On Saturday, April 2, 2016, the Airline Highway Parish Park will be hosting the first ever Xtreme Air 5k Obstacle Race, featuring 12 inflatable obstacles spread out over a 5k course. You’ll bounce (and bounce some more!), sweat, smile, run, challenge yourself, and laugh it up like never before. Each of our 12 custom inflatable obstacles is designed to be suitable for people of all age ranges and levels to get their fitness and fun on! These bouncy and bright obstacles are constructed with top-of-the-line materials and fastened to the ground with high strength steel alloy stakes and heavy retention straps. And all of our taller obstacles have fine mesh safety screening. This inaugural bouncy Louisiana Obstacle course race is certain to become the most fun Baton Rouge running race.
Airline Highway Parish Park, the race location, is a lush and huge (133.36 acres to be exact!) community park and is situated between Pecan Creek and Bullion, and nearby to Pecan Cove and Hope Villa and frequently hosts parish-wide and special events. In addition to hosting Baton Rouge running races like the Xtreme Air 5k Obstacle Race, the park also includes a multi-use pavilion, baseball diamonds, an internationally acclaimed air gun range, a picnic area and shelter, and a number of playgrounds. So race participants and their spectating friends and family can definitely make a whole day out the event!
The day before the race, we encourage you to pick up your race day packet (we’ll let you know where). Or, you can also come early on race day to check-in and pick up your packet.
Xtreme Air 5k obstacle races typically sell out before race day (especially for the most popular waves). If there are any spots still open on race day, we welcome walk-up registration for any wave that isn’t sold out. Don’t miss out on all the fun!

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.Learn More Register Now

We strongly encourage race participants to pick up their race packet the day before the race on Friday, April 1, 2016. If you can’t pick up your race packet till the actual race day—well, that’s okay too. Just be sure to arrive at least an hour before your designated wave time on race day as this will give you enough time to find parking, register, sign your waiver, and rent a locker if you want one. Remember, all racers must show photo ID at check in.
Even if you picked up your race packet on Friday, you still should arrive a bit before designated wave time on race day. Better safe than sorry! You wouldn’t want to run into traffic issues and miss out on the most fun Baton Rouge running race experience!
