Can I register at the run?
Once waves are filled we can no longer accept registrations. If there are still openings you are welcome to register the day of but remember it is not guaranteed that there will be open wave times. Day of registration will cost $85.00. We suggest registering early, the sooner you sign up the more money you save on registration!
What if the wave time I want is full?
Generally our wave times fill up quickly. For that reason, we suggest that if you want to run as a group to sign up early! If your wave time is full, but some of your team members have not signed up yet, we suggest switching your wave time to an open wave time that can accommodate all of your team members. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can do our best to accommodate. Note: there may be a fee to do so. As a reminder, if you and your team members need to run in multiple wave times you will still be counted together for any team contests or competitions.
Can I change my registration or start times?
There are some changes that can be made to registrations for a $15 fee. We cannot make changes after 5:00 pm EST (Eastern Standard Time) the Friday before the run. For all registration changes email email@example.com.

Can I transfer to a different location or person?
Yes, there will be a $15 fee to transfer your registration to another location or person. We cannot make any more changes after 5:00 pm EST the Friday before the run. To complete a transfer please email email@example.com.

Can my child do the run?
All children must be physically, mentally, and emotionally capable to complete the course with proper course etiquette.
- 8 to 12 years must run with a Registered Adult. Parents must use proper judgement and help the youngsters decide on what obstacles to do or not based on their ability, size and confidence level.
- 13+ years do not require an adult chaperone, but must adhere to all course rules and regulations.
- 7 years and under cannot run the 5k Foam Fest, but they can join us for FREE in our Kids FUN Zone, where they can try out our mini Inflatable Obstacle Course and Bounce House!
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!
Can journalists run for free?
Please email us at email@example.com and we will take care of you.
Does The 5K Foam Fest need volunteers?
As we continuously grow and expand our locations – the demand for staff also increases. You can now sign up to volunteer online.
We really appreciate people taking the day to come out and support our events, so THANK YOU!
Can I get a discount?
Do you have a large team or corporate group? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the total number of participants.
Also, keep an eye out for specials on Facebook and Instagram. There is always fun stuff happening here including announcements, promotions, special discount codes and updates on all the latest and greatest from The 5K Foam Fest.
How do I activate my promo code?
When registering, under the "Checkout" tab, you will enter your code in the coupon code box. You must then click "Apply". Note: If you do not apply the code when you register, you cannot receive a refund or have that code applied afterward. If you have a problem with your promo code make sure you contact us at email@example.com BEFORE you process your registration or we will not be able to help you.
How long will the run take a participant to complete?
The average person takes about an hour to an hour and a half to complete the course. The run itself is designed to avoid congestion on the course with a heated wave system running every 15 minutes in desirable numbers. This gives each and every participant a chance to experience The 5K Foam Fest at its best possible state!
How many people attend a day at The 5K Foam Fest?
We cap our registration numbers at 5000 people so that we can really focus on the participant experience. We never want our participants waiting in lines and not getting the full effect that 5K Foam Fest has to offer.
What should I bring to the run?
Bring yourself, your gear, and plan to get Foamy and muddy with a positive attitude – this is a judgement 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:
- Money for parking ($10)
- A change of clothes
- A towel to dry yourself off
- Some SPF for those fair skinned beauties
- Waterproof camera/action cam to capture your funny and memorable moments
- Garbage bags for your car seats (trust us, the mud may come home with you!)
What else do I need to know?
Once registered, you will receive a confirmation with a download link to your Registrant Information Package and Waiver Form. Please review these and have your waiver completed and signed for the day of the run. If you have registered but did not download these items, please download it now.
Still need your event waiver? Visit the Find Out More page of your run location to download the event waiver.
Why are USA prices higher than Canadian?
Our USA costs are substantially higher. Insurance is a big factor in this price adjustment. We aim to be as fair as we can and as economical as we can for our customers.
