Unlike the grueling obstacle course races where participants have to be in top physical shape to even attempt to compete, Xtreme Air 5K features giant inflatable obstacles designed to be enjoyed by people of all age ranges and physical fitness levels. There are no messy mud pits or military-style dirt crawls to contend with, just a gauntlet of inflatable obstacles that offer fun, unique physical challenges that are a blast to overcome! All of the obstacles are constructed of top-of-the-line materials and fastened to the ground with high strength steel alloy stakes and heavy retention straps. Fine mesh safety screening on our taller obstacles ensures that all participants have a safe environment where they can push themselves to the limit without concern.
The Phoenix Xtreme Air 5K course will span 100 acres of Estrella Mountain Regional Park's breathtaking natural backcountry. Located near the meeting of the Gila and Agua Fria Rivers, Estrella Mountain Regional Park is an outdoor enthusiast's dream. The park offers a lush grassy picnic area (the only one in the Maricopa park system!) to enjoy an afternoon picnic after libations in the Beer Garden. Participants can even arrange for a sunset horseback ride with a local tour company to put the perfect finish to an incredible race day!
Registration for Phoenix Xtreme Air 5K is a breeze. They can conveniently register online up until midnight on Friday, February 26, 1016, the night before the event. The popular waves tend to sell out early, so participants should register as soon as possible to ensure they get the wave they want. Walk-ins are welcome for any wave that still has slots open on the day of the event, of course. If the desired wave is sold-out, don't worry – there are still some All-Access passes available that will allow participants to race in whatever wave they want. Spectators enjoy the race for free, so participants should encourage friends and family to join in the fun and cheer them on.
Participants are encouraged to pick up their packets the Friday before the race, February 26, 2016. Parking is available at Estrella Mountain Regional Park, but traffic can always be a factor so runners should plan on arriving at least ninety minutes before their wave. That way they'll have plenty of time to verify identity, activate their chip, and check out the course and competition. If they don't pick up their packet early, they should arrive at least two hours before their wave to ensure they have adequate time to park, register, sign their waiver, activate their chip, and rent a locker if needed. Remember, they must bring a valid photo ID to activate their race chip – be sure to bring theirs so they don't miss out on the fun!
