5K Foam Fest Giveaway

As many of you know I ventured into the land of mud runs this year by signing up for my first muddish run called the 5K Foam Fest. What sold me on this was that I was able to get an AMAZING deal on Zozi.com - the deal is still available here for $29. If you want to sign up use this link and if you are not a Zozi member (which is free) you will get a $10 credit.

Alright, the reason for this post, after I signed up using the discount code above I started actually looking into the event. Yes, I know you are supposed to look into an event first and then register. I never do that - see a good deal and I am sucked into the fun and before I know it I am signed up.
First I checked out the teaser video and checked out more videos of the craziness HERE.


I then went on to read the FAQs section and found myself laughing out loud and instantly new it would be a good time.


I reached out to the people putting on the 5K Foam Fest and asked if they would be willing to donate an entry fee to one of my readers. They happily agreed and so there you have it. If you would like to win an entry to the 5K Foam Fest held in the Seattle area on June 30th! Not only will you get  a free entry...if you do the 10AM start you will get to met me! That has got to be worth something right.

So how do you enter - it's easy and there is a million ways - just remember to post a comment for all the ways you entered:
- Tell me why you want this free entry
- Follow 5K Foam Fest on Twitter - Here
- Tweet about it
- Facebook about it
- Tell your friend about it in email whatever
- Be a follower of my blog, by only if you want to

A winner will be selected at random on May 31st. Plenty of time to talk your friends in to joining you and figuring out what to wear.  I am thinking of dressing as a Tribute from District 12.

  4. I hope the Seattle race is better than the Phoenix one! Ours was only 2.1 miles long! How can you call yourself the 5K Foam Fest and not have a 5K course? They also had a bunch of problems with no foam, no water, long waits at obstacles (I think this is to be expected, but people complained anyway), and the party area had nothing that they advertised it would. They got A LOT of negative feedback, enough so that they shut down their facebook page. I hope they take the criticism to heart. It's such a great concept!!

    1. Thank you for all of the feedback on the 5k Foam Fest. Your reviews have helped us to improve our race and implement better policies for the future. We have been rapidly growing over the last year and in that growth we have learned. Running out of supplies such as pins, foam, and water is a thing of the past. We now come to each race stocked for multiple races so there is no fear of running low. We understand that no one likes waiting in lines so we have made adjustments to compensate for that too! We now have more staffing at registration which means more people available to help and drastically shorter lines. We have also doubled up on our obstacles to do away with bottle necking and lines there also. So instead of one slip and slide there is now two! We hope that you will join us again next year and allow us to show you the improvements we have made. Hope to see you in Foam!!!

  5. This looks fun! I am putting in a half-entry, because that's a kid-free weekend for me and Greg and I were just talking this morning about taking 7/2 and 7/3 off and taking a loooong holiday weekend. I'm afraid I might be out of town, but I'm not sure yet!
