I did this race with my kids and we had a blast! We will definitely do this again. It was very well organized and check in was very quick. We appreciated the foam at the end which enabled us to clean up so we didn't even need to hose off afterwards.

Had lots of fun but most of the events were at the top of the ski hill and was too tired to really enjoy the course.

This was my first 5k ever. I went with my sister-in-law and we had such a blast. We are planning to go again next year and bring the kids as they would really enjoy 5k foam fest!
