Ocala, FL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/12/2016 --5k runs in Ocala will never be the same once the first Xtreme Air 5k Inflatable Obstacle Race opens on April 23, 2016!

There's something new and exciting coming to 5k runs in Ocala, and North Central Floridians will never see 5k races in the same light again! When the first ever Ocala Xtreme Air 5k Inflatable Obstacle Race comes to the Florida Agriculture Center and Horse Park on April 23, 2016, participants will get to experience an insanely fun workout as they climb, scramble, bounce, and laugh their way through twelve giant inflatable obstacles created with fun in mind. It's like being the star of a video game come to life! The custom-designed obstacles meld the joyous fun of the best children's bouncy-huts with genuine physical challenges as participants scale thirty-feet high structures, forge through giant inflatable forests, dodge massive swinging balls, and more. Best of all, the Xtreme Air 5k obstacle race is designed so racers of all strengths, ages, and physical fitness can join in, making this Ocala 5k race a family fun adventure beyond compare!

Unlike most other obstacle races, Xtreme Air 5k is not a contest of endurance and pain that only the toughest warrior athletes can hope to complete. There are no barbed wire crawls for contestants to slog through like other 5k races in Ocala, no mud pits waiting for any who slip and fall. Instead of punishing participants for falling, Xtreme Air 5k encourages everyone to succeed with features like the escape doors on the intense "Balls to the Wall" obstacle that allow racers who slip to go back and try again. That's not to say that elite athletes won't be challenged by Xtreme Air 5k - anyone blasting through the climbing, jumping, and dodging activities of this course at speed will experience an intense workout that will test them to their limits.

Bring the whole family to join in the fun – spectators get in for free and anyone who is at least 42 inches or taller can enter the race to experience a thrilling, unique adventure as they giggle and bounce their way through with glee! Safety is never a concern for participants in an Xtreme Air 5k obstacle race, as all of the inflatable obstacles are made from top of the line, industrial strength materials and securely attached to the ground with high strength steel stakes and hefty retention straps. Fine mesh netting provides added security on the tallest obstacles.
