XtremeAIR 5k has put together an all ages event that will bring out the child in all of you. Moms and dads, grandmas and grandpas, bride and groom, and boys against girls can team up and race their opponents to the finish line. The only requirement is that you leave your negative and competitive attitude at home! This 5k race in Indianapolis brings a lighter side to the traditional 5k race because it combines strength, endurance, and cardio training with fun and exciting twist. 12 large inflatable obstacles lay across a scenic terrain and each offers a slightly different method of coordination. Don’t let these colorful bounce houses fool you though!

What to expect
On the Morning of August 20th, 2016 you will wake up bright an early and meet your crew at the beautiful White River State Park (the directions can be found here). You will feast your eyes on the 12 inflatable obstacles that lay before you, each different from one another. Let’s start with the first obstacle, ‘Game On’ which will give you a nice warm-up and prep you for the next one, ‘The Cliffhanger’ which will, well, send you up 3 stories to a steep slide down the other side. ‘The Gauntlet’ sounds like you should be expecting a challenge from the renaissance era as you will have to dodge large inflatable balls, dive through an inflatable jungle, and shimmy across giant X’s. And just when you think you’ve had enough, guess again because there’s more in store! Whether you have a personal goal that you want to accomplish or you’re coming with a group of you best buds for an outrageous birthday party, you are bound to have a bouncing good time.
