April 9, 2016
What’s up, Birmingham? There’s an amazing and one-of-a-kind 5k race in twon on Saturday, April 9, 2016. You may have previously run another Birmingham 5k race or obstacle course race, but the Xtreme Air 5k Obstacle Course Race is different than any running race you’ve ever participated in. First and foremost, our number one priority is for you to have fun. How can 12 inflatable obstacles spread out over a 5k course on the beautiful University of Montevallo campus not be fun? You will have to see these obstacles in person to appreciate their springy, lively fun, but for the meantime imagine these obstacles as a hybrid between a birthday party bouncy house and the obstacles on the TV show American Gladiators (or for those of you born in the 90’s or later, the TV show American Ninja Warrior is probably a more relevant pop culture reference).
This very bouncy, inaugural Birmingham 5k race obstacle course will have you laughing, smiling, sweating, and bouncing up and down with fun. Add a little (actually a huge) spring to your fitness step and try something new. This Xtreme Air 5k Obstacle Race is the hot new ticket in town! Who wouldn’t want to propel themselves up an inflatable mountain and then get to slide, slither, or even somersault all the way back down or run through an inflatable maze like a crazy person whose smartphone’s GPS directions program had crashed? And that’s just two of the 12 obstacles you get to jump and bobble around on—there are 10 more inflatable challenges that must be added to the mix to get the full Xtreme Air 5k fun experience.
Since the Xtreme Air 5k Obstacle Race often sells out before race day (especially for the more popular starting wave times), we urge you to sign up today. Just click on this button and our friends over at Active.com will ensure the registration process is quick and easy for you.

We strongly urge race participants to pick up their race packet the day before the race on Friday, April 8, 2016 between 4:00 – 9:00 PM (we’ll let you know where). Your packet includes your race bib and wave wrist band. It’s also a great opportunity to get together with your race teammates and fellow participants and start stirring up some excitement for the next morning’s activities.
If you’re unable to pick up your race packet on Friday, no problem! You can pick it up on race day. Please arrive an hour before your designated wave time on race day so you can find parking, register, sign your waiver, and rent a locker if needed. Remember to bring your photo ID because it is required at check in.
Even if you picked up your race packet on Friday, it’s still highly recommended that you arrive a bit before your designated wave time on race day. This way, you’ll have plenty of time to navigate parking, traffic, locker rentals, stretch, check out the course, put on your lucky race day wristbands, take a few pics, and get ready to bounce.
So who’s ready to have an amazing, epic day? You’re going to inflate the fun up to a whole new level. We’re looking forward to seeing you bouncing it up on race day. This Xtreme Air Birmingham 5k race will be back in town just for the day, so sign-up now! Trust us, when you’re checking out all the bright and bouncy photos on social media posted after the race or just watching the race longingly from the sidelines, you’re going to wish you had gotten to bounce and run into all the fun.
