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)!

Most fun you can have in the mud!!

Oct 16, 2018 by Sue Jordan

This was my 3rd year doing the run and my 10 year old granddaughter came with me this year!!! Before we were halfway she was smiling from ear to ear and saying she can't wait to do it again next year!!! Tickets are already bought for 2019....we are committed!!! Love it

Great experience

Oct 16, 2018 by Briannah

5km Foam Fest is a great experience. There are a variety of obstacles which add an extra challenge and excitement to the event. If you don't wish to complete a particular obstacle you can easily go around it and continue on. The only thing confusing part of the day is trying to find some of the station's either before or after the event. For example finding where to drop off your things before the event and finding where to rinse off and change afterwards. This can be easily fixed with more signs and/or a map of the area.
Overall a fantastic day!

2018 Moncton awesome yet again

Oct 16, 2018 by Paul Brooker

Once again the crew with 5k Foam Fest did a fantastic job with a well run, awesome event. Had an absolute blast and loved every minute of it. Great to see a few new obstacles as well as some returning favourites (looking at you giant waterslides). Fun for the whole family! You have to try it!

Amazing !!

Oct 16, 2018 by Destiny johnston

Alright so this was my first ever race and it was amazing!! New to town so i didnt have anyone to run with, which was kind of scary. I ended up running wit a tye dye team with some kids and had a blast ! It was pouring rain the whole day but it made it even better !! The staff was friendly and the event was amazing. Great for all ages. Right after i went to sign up for 2019 and mud hero and the santa shuffle . I am now addicted ! The only thing i would say needs changing, is the tall thing you jump off of, drop zone maybe? I dont remember the name but you pay $5 to do it. Anyways, there was a line and there was still well over a hour before the event was closed for the day. I was the last person they took , but after me there was at least 30 people who wanted to do it and was told “sorry this is closed for the day” and that they were done for the day. That is $150 the company lost out on and probably more because peolle were turned away. Also at this point, it wasnt raining anymore. This should be opened until the evet is complete done . Also i would like foam fest to come to red deer every year... since 2019 is the last year, its now harder for me to go to another one.

What a blast

Oct 16, 2018 by Evan Norris

What a blast!! It was a cool day but, my kids trucked on. My Wife and I did it with our two kids and they absolutely loved it. They were frozen at the end from the wind, even though the sun was out but, overall they couldn't wait to do it again.

I had an absolute riot and all of the obstacles were oh so challenging!! Thank you for bringing this to Vancouver Island! We will be back in 2019!!!!!

We submitted a team in the race. Was really impressed by how well organized the event was. We all had an awesome day doing the many obstacles that was offered! Highly recommend! Got it booked to do again!!!
