The 5K Foam Fest obstacle races, mud run, and OCR information, distance, cost, dates, calendar, discounts, obstacles, reviews, and more

Get ready to get FILTHY clean with 5k Foam Fest!
What in the world could possibly be more fun than running through a course chuck full of mud, foam, and obstacles? Running through it with your friends, of course! Check out our video to see how much fun you can have together! Well, you’ll need bodies. So grab your friends, neighbors, co-workers, and family members and get them registered! Your team can be as big as you want. And remember, the only way to make sure you all get to run in the same wave is to register early and together, so don’t wait! Otherwise we can’t guarantee that you’ll be flying around in foam with your friends.

If you are looking to beat a world record or run so hard that you nearly lose bowel control then you might be disappointed. The 5K Foam Fest is not a hardcore race it is a FUNCORE race. The goal is to have fun while running. We will have a race clock at the end of the race so you can internally take note how fast you ran the race but you will not be given timing chips and we encourage you to focus on the fun aspect of the race rather than the speed.

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, mini inflatable obstacle course, and bounce house. We even have activities for the kids at heart! Like our Skyfall (A 25’ drop onto a airbag/stunt bag)!

Awesome time

Nov 17, 2016 by Shyanne

Had an awesome time!!! the only disappointment was the second set of wood wall was right after a water spot and was very slippery. I fell down the first wall and had a huge bruise instantly (no big deal) but the second wall was a no go for me as with water added to it was a little to slippery for my liking. but will defiantly be back next year!!!!

It was a blast so look forward to it again this year. Our only disappointment from this event was a lot of the "mud" obstacles were not mud, but it was not foam fest's fault it had to do with forest fires, which left water supply a little on the thin side, but definitely looking forward to making up for it this year.

C'était notre première course en famille avec des enfants de 7 et 9 ans et nous avons adoré notre expérience ! C'est certain que nous nous inscrivons a nouveau pour 2017!

Great Fun

I was reluctant to do this with a swollen ankle from another injury, but after some convincing from friends, 4 of us did it on a cold & rainy day in June. It was awesome despite the cold! Everybody was super pumped & look forward to doing it this year in hopefully better weather. Good times had by all:)

We did the 5K Foam Fest as a family activity. My children are 9,11,12 & 13. We enjoyed our experience. Kids are asking to do it again. Thank you to all the organizers who make this event a success! We will be back next year!

My family, which consisted of cousins, daughter, sister and friends, all had a great time! My cousin, who has seizures for an unknown reason and was slated for surgery, ran the race with us. She was our inspiration! Not only did she run it, but she did better than i did! We can hardly wait for next year's run and there will be even more on our team! I highly recommend this run to everyone!

Our first time at an event like this. We had an amazing day and many many laughs. It was well organized and the race is set up for all fitness levels. The staff was friendly. I wish there had been more photos of our team and a licensed area at the end of the race would have been nice. We will definitely be attending in 2017.

Honestly the most fun I've had in a long time. I'm 5'9 and the foam was taller than me! My friends and I literally laughed the entire time and even though it's been over 4 months since we did it it's still one of the days we talk about most and one of the first stories we tell others about while we invite them to come with us to next years event! I even have a count down on my phone for when the next event is and we get to do it again because I'm so excited for the fun times to come! I would recommend this fun run to everyone - runners, walkers, joggers, crawlers, everybody fits in and has a blast

Great for Families

This was the first time I did FoamFest, and I did it with my 8 and 10-year old daughters. They absolutely loved it, and it was a great way to spend a few hours with them. They are looking forward to doing it again, as am I. It's a wonderful parent-child activity.

This was my very first obstacle mud run type of race. I am a single mother with two very active boys. I give everything to them.. my time.. my money.. my love.. and don't often have anything left for myself.. I joined a single moms group and we decided to go do this together!! 5 of us signed up! And it was so empowering and amazing!! We all had smiles on our faces from start to finish and can't wait to do it again next year!!
Anyone, with any experience can do this run!!! Seriously, if you think you can't.. I'm telling you, you can!!!
