5 Reasons To Do The 5K Foam Fest This Summer!

Are you looking for a challenge this summer that’s active, outdoors, and fun for the whole family? Have you been contemplating signing up for your first obstacle course run or want to try something outside of your comfort zone? From the seasoned “mudder” to the newbie runner, the 5K Foam Fest offers something for everyone.

Because of our “fun-core” not hard-core environment, you’ll fit right in—no matter your age or skill level. Take the plunge, challenge yourself, and come see what we’re all about. Be prepared to get muddy, wet, and full of foam as you proudly conquer 24+ awesome obstacles on our 5km course. You’ll be having fun and smiling from ear-to-ear right from our foamy start through to the foamy finish. You can run it, walk it, jog it, or even dance it through the course whatever it takes for you to conquer it!

Here are the top 5 reasons to grab your friends, lace up your running shoes and get filthy clean in the 5K Foam Fest 2019 event day:


We’re all about fun and want to see everyone having a great time in our fun-core environment. We have a family-friendly atmosphere, where kids can act like kids and adults can act like a kid again, getting down and dirty in the mud and playing around in the foam. You’ll be having so much fun by the end of this exciting challenge that you won’t even realize you’ve completed 24+ obstacle challenges and ran through 5kms of trails, leaving you filthy clean.


Whether you’re a seasoned runner or first time on the scene, this is the event is for you!
5K Foam Fest is a non-competitive, non-timed run. There’s no stress or pressure and everyone can feel comfortable participating. Worried about an obstacle or scared of heights? No problem, a staff member can help you through any obstacle or you can skip it entirely as all our obstacles are optional!


For our obstacle course junkies, 5K Foam Fest has 24+ exciting and challenging obstacles to push your limits. Trek through our mud crawl, rinse off in the body washer, run over our lily pads, and climb over walls and ropes and end with a foamy finish. If you’re looking for a challenge, step right up and give each obstacle your all while covering 5kms of trails. If you’re looking for an even bigger challenge, check out our option to add a 2nd lap on event day, space permitting.


You can even run the 5K Foam Fest as a team! Grab your buddies, come up with an awesome team name, get decked out in creative costumes, and be prepared to get covered in foam and mud together. We think that obstacle course runs are always better in a team. Whether it’s a group of friends or your entire family running as a team is the way to tackle Foam Fest!


Keep the adrenaline pumping and good vibes flowing in our festival, which includes a beer garden, food trucks with tons of variety, 12,000 watts of awesome music, the awesome Skyfall drop and kids’ Fun Zone. 5K Foam Fest is an absolute party—before, during and after your run.

Come see for yourself why we’re rated North America’s #1 fun run and experience the Foamiest, Muddiest, and Funnest 5K challenge with us in 2019! Ages 8 and up can participate in our family-friendly event. Get ready to be covered in foam as we pump out 2.5 million cubic feet of foam in each event. Also included in each event, you’ll receive a runner’s bib, Foam Fest tattoo, 5K Foam Fest beach towel, Chapman’s popsicle and finisher’s medal!
