Hello Columbia, SC – Tired of boring 5k runs? On Saturday, May 21, 2016, Columbia’s inaugural Xtreme Air 5k Inflatable Obstacle Course is coming to town!  The Xtreme Air 5k race will be nothing like any of the other Columbia 5k races you’ve either participated in or watched. That’s because this Xtreme Air 5k Inflatable Obstacle Court 5k Races in Columbia, SC features 12 inflatable obstacles spread out over a 5k course at the beautiful Saluda Shoals Park. While you really have to see (and try out!) these obstacles in person to appreciate their bouncy, insanely creative, and inflatable fun, for a preview, check out the Obstacle Overview section of our website to see renderings and read descriptions of each of the 12 obstacles.

Saluda Shoals Park—a 400 acre regional park chock full of amenities and located along the banks of the beautiful Saluda River. This park is a premier, natural, and environmentally sensitive park that invites visitors to experience the treasures of the Saluda River through exceptional educational, recreational, and cultural opportunities. The park is located at 6071 St. Andrews Road, Columbia, SC 29212 (click here for directions). The correct entrance to use is the EAST entrance to the park (behind the Aldi Grocery Store).

Don’t let May 21st be a boring run-of-the-mill Saturday, instead blow up the fun level and sign up for this event today!

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

Early registration is strongly encouraged because Xtreme Air 5k events often sell out before race day, especially for the most desirable starting wave times and for multi-person teams who prefer for each team member to start the race at the same starting wave time. Sign up today with our partners at to reserve your spot and receive an early registration discount. The registration fees, discounts (if applicable), and deadlines for the May 21, 2016 Xtreme Air 5k  races in Columbia, SC are below.

If you didn’t sign up early or perhaps made a spur-of-the moment decision on race day to participate, you may still be in luck. If there are any open spots left, we welcome same-day registration, so long as you come to the race location an hour before starting time so we can get you registered, give you your race packet, and make sure you are all squared away to participate.

If you did sign up ahead of race day, we strongly urge you to pick up your race day packet, which includes your race bib and wave wrist band, on Friday May 20, 2016 (we will let you know where). Whether you pick up your race day packet on Friday or on the morning of the actual race day, don’t photo ID with you for check-in.
