Organizer:The 5K Foam Fest 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)!

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! You can crawl it for all we care! With well spread out heats/wave times this allows for a straight shot of 5K with 22-24 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 physically demanding races 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. Also, don’t forget we have 3 of the World’s largest inflatable waterslides!
The event is owned and operated by a group of Canadian 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! Plus let’s not forget about charity, were raising money for that!
Two water stations on course with one more at the finish line
Paramedics on course and at start/finish area
Free water available
Spectators may come out to the festival area at the start/finish line at no cost. As long as you stay off the course please feel free to roam and watch.
Parking is $10 per vehicle (cash only). While most locations offer on site parking, some locations require off site parking in which case a shuttle will be provided throughout the day
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, check out our Skyfall attraction (25’ drop onto an airbag/stunt bag)!
We also have showers to rinse of the mud and changing tents to get out of the wet clothes and into some dry ones. We recommend bringing a change of clothes, shoes, towel and a plastic bag for your wet clothes.We also have a shoe donation for a good cause.
We have aligned ourselves with local Food Banks across the country! We believe in actively supporting our local communities and contributing to organizations and groups that support causes close to our hearts. Bring a non-perishable food item to the event and receive a FREE custom Foam Fest lanyard ($5 value)
The Foam Fest is for everyone, from dirty to clean. You can sign up to run it as an individual or with your family, co-workers, or friends as a team. Your team can be as big as you want (the more the merrier) BUT remember, the only way to make sure you all get to run at the same time is to register early and in the same wave time, so don’t wait! Otherwise we can’t guarantee that you’ll be flying around in foam with your friends. Register now and let your friends know you have so they can do the same!
