For a thrilling obstacle race that is a step above the ordinary 5k races in Louisville!
Louisville, KY -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/30/2016 --Calling all 5K runners, racers, and weekend warriors in the Louisville-Jeffersonville area! Get ready to enjoy the most exciting, unique running event Louisville has ever held when the first annual Xtreme Air 5k Inflatable Obstacle Race opens at E. P. "Tom" Sawyer Park on April 16, 2016. This event is a far cry from the ordinary, run of the mill 5k races in Louisville – racers will have the time of their lives as they jump, slide, and bounce their way through twelve enormous inflatable obstacles designed to maximize fun! Participants of all fitness levels and ages will have an absolute blast bouncing their way through the course as they enjoy the most insanely fun workout of their lives. Spectators get in free, so racers should gather their family, friends, and coworkers together for an exciting day of outdoor fun that's like no other!
Unlike other Kentucky 5k runs and obstacle races that primarily cater to elite, super-fit athletes in superb shape, the Louisville Xtreme Air 5k Obstacle Race was created to bring the fun back to racing for everyone! Participants don't have to slog through mud-filled pits or crawl under barbed wire, they just get to enjoy an insanely fun time sliding, jumping, and shimmying through bouncy inflatable obstacles. Dedicated athletes who run through the course at their top speed will find these inflatable objects deliver a surprisingly stiff workout regimen that's the equal of many of the 5k races known to test endurance, while younger competitors and those with a more casual approach will get to laugh and bounce their way to a fabulously fun finish.
The inflatable obstacles in the Louisville Xtreme Air 5k race combine the best features of bouncy houses with the excitement of the live action sets of the television shows like American Ninja Warrior or Nickelodeon's Legends of the Hidden Temple. As participants scramble their way through the giant inflatable maze in Get Lost, dodge the giant swinging balls of the Gauntlet, and climb the three-story high Cliffhanger, they'll realize they've never imagined a workout could be this fun!
Each of the custom designed inflatable obstacles in the race is designed to offer a safe, fun workout for participants of all ages and fitness levels. They are fabricated with top of the line materials and securely fastened to the ground with high strength steel alloy stakes and heavy retention straps. Obstacles over a certain height are equipped with fine mesh netting so participants can have a great time pushing themselves to the limit without any worrying about safety concerns.
