Meet the Foam Fest Wish Kid Ambassador Kolby!
Your donations help kids like Kolby experience joy, strength and hope when they need it the most!

Thanks to all the #fundraisingfoamies, over $200,000 was raised in 2023 to support Make-A-Wish Canada. Let’s smash the goal again in 2024! Because of your ongoing support, we can help grant life-changing wishes to children with critical illnesses, wishes like Kolby.

Kolby is a thirteen-year-old boy who was diagnosed with cancer when he was six years old, this news was a complete shock to his family. Kolby is a typical teen who loves hockey, baseball, fishing, and hanging out with his friends. Kolby’s wish was to have new goalie equipment (to be just like his idols).

Kolby’s mom told us “My favourite part of this wish was seeing his smile! This wish come true was meaningful because in ways, it let Kolby just be a kid – plus he was able to pick equipment that he likely never would have received. He likes to match everything, so that was a real bonus for him!”

The 5K Foam Fest is
Going GREEN!
We love our fun, but we love our planet too!

The 5k Foam Fest is implementing some changes to our event to reduce the waste we generate as we work towards a more environmentally friendly experience.

Foam Fest FAQs

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!

All children must be physically, mentally, and emotionally capable to complete the course with proper course etiquette.

  • 7 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. Event waiver(s) must be signed by the child’s legal guardian when registering.
  • 13+ years do not require an adult chaperone, but must adhere to all course rules and regulations. Event waiver(s) must be signed by the child’s legal guardian when registering.
  • 6 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 (adult supervision required). Waiver(s) must be signed by the child’s legal guardian on site at the event.

Kids 7 and up who are registering to run the course are charged the same price and receive the same full experience of the 5K Foam Fest that adults do. Kids 6 and under receive FREE access to our kids zone with a registered adult. We offer family pass pricing (based on a minimum of 4 family members). The family pass is available as a ticket option when registering, no promo code is required.

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.

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!

Refer your friends and earn money! You can earn $5-$15 per ticket purchased using your custom promoter link located in your raceroster.com ticketing account! You share your link…your friend registers…you get money!!  Raceroster issues you the payment directly and is tracked in your raceroster.com account under the promote section! But remember…Friends and family must register using your unique promoter link in order to get paid! 

Payout amounts vary based on event location and current ticket prices. To find out how much you can earn, simply log into your raceroster.com account and pull up your Foam Fest ticket!

Yes, we have partnered nationally with Make-A-Wish Canada. We believe that Foam Fest is a great opportunity for families to help other families in need. We aim to help grant some truly inspirational wishes for children in communities across the country. To donate now or build a fundraising team click here.

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!

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: lightning, high winds, tornadoes, forest fires, earthquakes, extreme hail or snow.

We ask all participants to plan to arrive 1 hour ahead of your scheduled wave time and head to the Registration and Festival Zone. Once you’ve been checked in and assigned your bib feel free to mingle in the Festival Zone while waiting for your heat.

Please email us at info@the5kfoamfest.com and we will take care of you.

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:

  • Money for parking ($15 cash)
  • 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!)

The Make-A-Wish gear check tent will be in the festival area and available by donation ($5 minimum). All proceeds will help grant wishes to children across Canada!

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.

Smile! Photos from the event will be edited and uploaded as soon as possible, usually within 2 days of the event.  You can find them here.  You can search by facial recognition (selfie upload) or by time of day/obstacle.

Once registered, you will receive a confirmation email with a download link to your Registrant Information Package. We are going paperless and ask that at check in on event day you show your ticket on your phone for us to scan or we can even just look you up by name and ID. 

Our number one priority is the customer experience! We really emphasize a friendly fun-filled day that caters to each and every one of our participants!! Our pricing is affordable so that either an individual, family or group you can come out and enjoy a full day of fun with custom features, a fun atmosphere and memories to last a lifetime!

As we continuously grow and expand our locations, the demand for volunteers also increases. You can sign up to volunteer here. We really appreciate people taking the day to come out and support our events, so THANK YOU!

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 $124.99. We suggest registering early, the sooner you sign up the more money you save on registration!

Foam Fest is fun but it’s also an obstacle course and like any physical activity there are risks of injury and/or death. Please carefully read our waiver form when registering to fully understand the risks. If you have any questions in regards to the waiver please reach out to us at info@the5kfoamfest.com or ask to speak with an event coordinator at the event.  You can preview an example copy of the waiver here.

Registration FAQs

There are no refunds on registrations, however you can transfer the ticket to a friend, a different location or defer it to a future event.  There is a $15 fee applicable.

I understand no refunds will be granted if the event decides to modify, postpone, change venues or cancel the Activities due to weather conditions, acts of God, or other factors beyond their control that may affect the venue, safety and/or health of the participants and/or visitors.

We are on a quest to bring every eligible child's wish to life, because a wish is an integral part of a child's treatment journey. Research shows children who have wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a critical illness.

As an independently operating affiliate of Make-A-Wish International, Make-A-Wish Canada is part of the network of the world’s leading children’s wish-granting organization. In 2023, our talented team of dedicated wish coordinators and volunteers granted 1,389 wishes, but there is still a significant backlog of wishes yet to grant, with new referrals coming in every day. We’ve got a long way to go to deliver the most heartfelt wish of every eligible child.

The Toronto Event was so well organized, I left exhausted but happy! My family and I had a blast and felt comfortable going at our own pace to make sure... we could last the entirety of the course and enjoy every obstacle. My only feedback would be more water stations and to post markers letting participants know how far they have gone or how much of the course is left. By the end we had tracked over 7km vs the 5km we thought we were doing. Great obstacles, LOTS of hills, amazing volunteers and an overall fun vibe. It was difficult but fun.I will attend again!read more

My kids went for the foam fest for the first time based on a recommendation of a friend. It was the best time they had in a long time. The day we went was... a hot hot day. They enjoyed getting wet every few minutes on the hurdles which were challenging and fun and doable enough for both my 17 and 11 year old. Best of all are the pictures from the foam fest which we could see and enjoy after the fact. It was nice to see them enjoying the hurdles we could not see from the side lines. Well organized and managed and a total delight for all ages. We would do it again and especially as a group this is a fun day out in summer definitely!read more

My teammates and I from the gym I go to in Guelph Ontario called The Roc Health and Fitness, had a blast at 5K Foam Fest this past Saturday! We worked... hard, got sweaty and had a ton of fun in the foam. I will for sure be attending 5K Foam Fest again in the future. Thanks for putting on such a fun event!read more

The Foam Fest was a blast! I had done a similar Warrior Dash before, but I loved the "get filthy clean" mix of dirt and foam! The path was beautiful... through Horseshoe Valley resort, around the ski hills, golf course, and beautiful homes. The obstacles were challenging but definitely do-able. Most of all, it was great to support a good cause! Can't wait to run again!!read more
This was my first time going to the foam fest and it was so much fun! It was very challenging, but not so hard that newbies couldn’t do it. I plan on... going again next year!read more
