Course Description:

Although this looks like the funnest 5K on the Planet (and it really is) it can also be challenging. No matter what level of runner you are, we want to ensure that you make the race whatever you want by having the option to Walk it, Run it, Charge it or Fun it! With well spread-out heats and limitations, this allows for a straight shot of 5K with 16-20 obstacles and low wait times. With that being said, we’ve had runners feel that the course is just as good of a workout as some of the longer and more physically demanding race courses due to less resting time. Let’s be realistic anyway, how could running through a non-stop 5K course of mud, foam and obstacles not be a workout. If you crave more of the amazing features including loads of foam, slides, mud, bouncing, water and wickedness, then why not run again at only half the price!

The event is owned and operated by a group of Canadians whom are former Professional Athletes and Olympians with the main focus being the runner and their experience. We strive for a fun for all ages, abilities and family friendly event and yes, you can still get a beer and have a good time while your kids play in the super fun festival area setup for them with inflatables, music and more!

Aid Stations:

Two water stations on course
Paramedics on course and at start/finish area
Free water available


Spectators may come out to the festival area at the start/finish line and watch at no cost.


Parking on site is $10 per vehicle (cash only)

Post Party:

It is a festival after all!! So be sure to come early and bring your friends and family. We've got several activities including our foam pit, inflatable obstacle course and bounce house. We even have activities for the kids at heart! Like our Skyfall, Big Baller, and Wrecking Ball!


The minimum age to run 5K Foam Fest 2016 is 8 Years of age. Anyone under the age of 13 will have to run with an adult chaperone.
Showers and gear check available
