About the event
What is the 5K Foam Fest?
The 5K Foam Fest is a one of kind obstacle course-based fun run. With a variety of obstacles and a ton of foam, the run is an exciting challenge for experienced and beginner runners alike. The 5K Foam Fest is not a hardcore run it is a FUNCORE run. Walk it, charge it, run it, fun it! A festival atmosphere offering activities for all ages.
Does the 5K Foam Fest align with any charities?
Yes, we are proud to support the work of Make-A-Wish granting wishes to children and teens fighting critical illnesses.
Is there any swimming required?
Most water-based obstacles are only a few feet deep! If you feel you shouldn't do an obstacle for any reason our staff will help you around it. All obstacles are optional!
Do I have to complete all obstacles?
Can't swim? A little nervous about being able to complete an obstacle? No problem! Staff and volunteers are placed throughout the course. They are ready to leap into action and help you through an obstacle. Or, if you feel you shouldn't do an obstacle for any reason our staff will help you around it. All obstacles are optional.
What should I wear?
We encourage people to get crazy and creative and come in just about anything. All we ask is no cleats or sharp objects since a good portion of our course is inflatables, of course, and we wouldn't want one to go POP!
What if it rains on event day?
The 5K Foam Fest is a rain or shine event. Unless we've contacted you to tell you otherwise, assume the event is on regardless of weather conditions. Weather conditions that would cause us to postpone or cancel include lightning, high winds, tornadoes, forest fires, earthquakes, and extreme hail or snow.
What should I bring to the run?
Bring yourself, some ID, your gear, and plan to get foamy and muddy with a positive attitude as this is a judgment-free zone so there is no need to be nervous. We can't stress enough that this is YOUR run, and we want YOU to have as much fun as possible!
A few extra things we suggest include:
- A change of clothes
- A towel to dry yourself off
- Some SPF for those fair-skinned beauties
- Waterproof camera to capture your funny and memorable moments
- Garbage bags for your car seats (trust us, the mud may come home with you!)
Do I have to run?
The 5K Foam Fest is not a hardcore run it is a FUNCORE run. Walk it, charge it, run it, fun it! Lots of walking groups have a blast at Foam Fest!
