Air Games, the inflatable obstacle course
Air Games returns to Belgium for a third season. Last year, the event had to be canceled due to the health situation. This year, the organizers are eager to meet the crazy runners. After a warm-up, the participants set off on a course of five kilometers during which they will have to face fourteen obstacles. Some are over 30 meters high, others are motorized and slippery. The goal of this race is to have fun! Here, no classification, only a good mood. So far, five dates have been announced across Belgium, in August and September. The first tickets will be sold at 29 €. To learn more, click here.
