The new craze of running through foam will be on display at the 5K Foam Fest, held April 12 at Cousin’s Paintball Park, in Forney. It’s all the fun of a mud run, combined with foam and watery obstacles; the experience is a lot like running through a giant car wash. The race is suited for the serious and novice runner, walkers and families.
With an obstacle course built into the race route, participants navigate obstacle challenges toward the finish line. Runners are encouraged to dress in costume and are required to wear a race bib.
The sponsor, Round House Racing, is dedicated to inspiring a healthier, happier society through the combination of exercise and philanthropy. This year, A Child’s Hope Foundation charity was chosen as the beneficiary, because of their commitment to provide housing and basic necessities to orphaned children in developing countries.
Pick up bibs on race day. Race officials suggest arriving at least one hour early to avoid lines. T-shirts and medals will be handed out at the finish line. Parking is $10 per vehicle.
Location: 8975 FM 740, Forney. For more information or to register, visit 5KFoamFest.com.
