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)!

Poor parking planning
Parking location was 5 miles from the event with
Only a few busses running. Our wait for a shuttle was over an hour but people behind us waited much longer. Miserable
The obstacles were fun especially the big inflatable slide. The ground was very uneven and full of sticks and things to trip on . We did even see someone who got injured .
And they still haven't sent the link for the free photos .
I was hoping for more .
The location/parking situation for this location was terrible. The off-site parking had a THREE hour shuttle bus wait, when we arrived at 10 a.m. for our 11:00 run. Basically, they were behind from the first run that morning. We had 6 teenagers, and 3 adults. We ended up driving near the location, parking in a closed business parking lot, and walking a quarter mile into the event. Then, waiting at the entrance on location for a pull behind trailer with benches to ride through active paintball fields. Only we had to wear a face mask while on the trailer, so that limited the number of people that could ride. (More wait time) Thankfully, the owner of the paintball field was driving groups through in his personal vehicle to help ease the wait. All 9 of us crammed into a 4 door Ford Focus looking car. By the time we got to the actual run, we were worn out and cranky. NOT the way we wanted to start out with 5 teenagers! We will NOT be attending this event with off-site parking ever again. Be ye warned!
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!
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
