The inflatable obstacles in the Albuquerque Xtreme Air 5k race bring fun, laughter, and sheer enjoyment to participants while proving that runners don't have to sacrifice fun to get a challenging workout.

Instead, participants enjoy a fun-filled workout that's wildly exhilarating rather than exhausting.

Each of the inflatable obstacles offers its own unique challenge. Participants get to experience a real live video-game style workout as they laugh their way through the course, dodging massive swinging balls, scrambling through an inflatable forest, gliding down giant three-story high slides, and much more! Athletes looking to challenge themselves can push it to the limit racing through the Albuquerque Xtreme Air 5K obstacle course at high speed. Casual racers and younger participants can proceed at their own pace over the obstacles for an amazing fun run adventure in a safe environment.

The Albuquerque Xtreme Air 5k race course will be laid out over several dozen acres in beautiful Balloon Fiesta Park, conveniently located on Alameda Boulevard, one mile west of I-25. Best known as the site of the annual Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, the park offers expansive grassy fields perfect for enjoying a race day picnic while taking in the stunning view of the Sandia Mountains. Participants who are still raring to go after the race course closes at 2:30 can head over to the Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum to enjoy one of the most complete collections of artifacts, images, and stories from the world of Ballooning.

Signing up for the Xtreme Air Albuquerque 5K race is easy, thanks to a convenient online registration process. Racers are urged to sign up as early as possible, since the popular waves sell out early and prices are higher closer to race day. Online registration will close at midnight March 25, 2016, the day before the race, but walk-ins are welcome on the day of the race for any waves that are not sold out. All Access passes are available for serious athletes (and procrastinators!) that allow racers to join any and all waves they choose, even if sold-out. Special team pricing and other perks are available for group registrants, so racers should grab their friends, family, and co-workers to join in the fun!

Participants are strongly advised to pick up their packet the day before on Friday, March 25, 2016. The parking lot opens at Balloon Fiesta Park at 6:15am on Race Day, March 26, 2016. There is ample parking at the park, but traffic can always be a factor so participants are encouraged to arrive at least ninety minutes before their wave, two hours if they need to pick up their packet. Racers will be able to check-in, pick up packets, and sign their wavers starting at 6:30am. Lockers will be available to rent in the Expo Area. Participants must show a photo ID when checking in – no exceptions. The first wave takes off at 8:30 to start a game of race day fun like no other!
