This past weekend, my buddy and I traveled out to Sherwood, OR to get down in dirty running the 5k Foam Fest! This was hands down, one of the most fun races I have done. The course was great, the obstacles were unique, and the crowd was ready for some good, muddy fun!
Today, 5K Foam Fest officially announced it would be returning to the United States. This time under the management of 365 Sports a Canadian-based event company. Mud Run Guide spoke exclusively today with Jesse Fulton the owner and founder of 365 Sports to talk about the event coming back to the United States.
5K Foam Fest has become one of Canada's favorite themed runs. While the series in Canada has glowing reviews those who remember the series in the US may have a different memory. The team that originally brought 5K Foam Fest to the USA is no longer involved with the race series. After becoming a staple in Canadian obstacle racing under the management of 365 Sports.
Our race spotlight this week focuses on 5K Foam Fest Canada, they first entered the obstacle racing and mud run market in 2014. Their first event was held in London, Ontario at Boler Mountain. While many remember 5K Foam Fest from the US going under the Canadian series has been going strong for years and has continued to grow. We spoke with Jesse Fulton of 365 Sports Canada, the company which runs 5K Foam Fest Canada, to find out more about the event and successes.
The hard fact is this; businesses fail. It happens every day, all over the globe. Whether they are a Detroit carmaker or the corner bakery, the collapse of these businesses inflict plenty of damage - both primary (the owners, employees, banks, etc.) and collateral (those employees' families, 3rd parties, and customers) and he fallout can get pretty ugly; social media makes damn sure that happens.
