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 I've had while running!
This is seriously the best run event in the city. Always fun, well organized and great for everyone! Can't wait for the summer to have a chance to run again :)
Did the foam fest with my sister when it came to Abbotsford. We are hoping to do it again this year and bring my niece!! Was such a fun time :)
5k Foam Fest a Blast
Be a kid again. 5K Foam Fest is a blast, with the fastest slip 'n slides I've been on!
Great family event
This is a great family event. My daughter and I have ran this race for the last 4 years with our best friends. Sad that 2019 will be the last event held in Red Deer.
Had such an amazing time for my first ever fun run. Would recommend this event to anyone. Can’t wait to run next year!
It was an awesome time, great way to meet new people, lots of excitement, great way to overcome fears and challenges in your life, I have never went down a water slide in my life until I went down that one and I loved it, overall great day and a great experience, CAN’T WAIT FOR 2019 in CORNER BROOK, NL, to do it all over again.
